Mother's Love

Album: Intimacy: Album III (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Intimacy: Album III, the third studio album by American R&B artist Kem. The "Intimacy" title indicates the set's theme, though Kem told Billboard it's not just about sexual and romantic intimacy. "Intimacy is allowing yourself to really be yourself in front of another individual and allowing them to do the same without any judgment," he explained. "We're talking about relationships between lovers, between friends... spiritual intimacy between ourselves and our creator. There's a song called 'Mother's Love' which is talking about maternal intimacy. We go a little bit deeper into those things on this record."
