Eminem has released an emotional music video on Mother's Day in an attempt to reconcile with his estranged mother Debbie Mathers.

The 41-year-old rap singer launched the music video for his song Headlights, with heart-wrenching lyrics that ask for forgiveness from his mother.

In the music video Eminem raps, "I'm sorry Mama, for cleaning out my closet, at the time I was angry, rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it through cause now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not going to make jokes. That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it's on the radio."

Directed by Oscar-nominated Spike Lee, the emotional music video narrates the mother-son story in 'first person' from both the rap singer and his mother's perspective, Mashable reported.

The song also features some vintage pictures of Eminem's childhood when his mother revisits the family album in the video.

The emotional video also shows how Debbi attempted to visit her singer son several times but was sent back by the security guards.

"I really love the narrative for what we've come up with together for Headlights. It's a great deal of story. It's heartfelt, some pain in it, but that's life. So that's why we're here, back in the hood, 8 Mile Detroit, shooting where all this took place," director Lee said in the teaser video of Headlights.

According to a Latinospost report, the rap singer chose to apologise to his mother publicly because he sung many songs with hateful lyrics directed towards his mother in his past albums, especially in 'Cleaning Out My Closet.'

In the music video Eminem rapped, "I went in headfirst / Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse / My mom probably got it the worst / The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are / Did I take it too far? / "Cleaning Out My Closet" and all them other songs / But regardless I don't hate you 'cause, Ma, / You're still beautiful to me, 'cause you're my mom."

Headlights is the song from Eminem's last album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which was released on 5 February.
