Today, on Mother’s Day, local rapper Ben Miller has released a new song titled “Number 1” to express his love and gratitude towards his mother. The song, which was written in just over a week, is a heartfelt tribute to the woman who has been his constant support and inspiration throughout his life.
In “Number 1,” Ben Miller shares his childhood memories of dealing with health complications and frequent hospital visits. He acknowledges the challenges his mother faced during those years, with doctors and others doubting her instincts and calling her an “obsessive” mom. Despite the criticism, Ben’s mother never gave up on her son and fought tirelessly for his health and well-being.
The music video for “Number 1” features old footage of Ben and his mother, including a clip of them boarding a plane for London where he underwent a heart operation at Great Ormand Street Hospital when he was just five years old. The video also showcases Ben’s creativity and artistry, with Dru, his main videographer, bringing his vision to life with stunning visuals.
Throughout the song, Ben Miller expresses his appreciation for his mother’s unwavering love and support. He sings about how she has been his number one fan and has always been there for him through thick and thin. The lyrics are honest and heartfelt, conveying a deep sense of gratitude and admiration for his mother.
One of the standout lines in the song is “scream the words to everglow,” a reference to his mother’s favorite Coldplay song, which she also has as her phone ringtone. This line is a testament to the special bond between a mother and her child, and how music can bring people together and create lasting memories.
In conclusion, “Number 1” is a beautiful tribute to all mothers out there, recognizing the tireless work and dedication that goes into raising a child. Ben Miller’s new song is a touching reminder to cherish and appreciate our mothers, not just on Mother’s Day, but every day of the year.
