“Slow Jamz” is a single by American rapper Twista featuring Kanye West and Jamie Foxx. It was released in late 2003 as the lead single from his album Kamikaze and from Kanye West’s debut album The College Dropout. The song is a tribute to classic smooth soul artists and slow jam songs. Kanye West is the song’s producer and supplies the first verse, Twista gives the second verse and the outro, and actor/singer Jamie Foxx sings the chorus. The song’s hook – “Are you gonna be, are you gonna be, are you gonna be, well well well well” – is taken from Luther Vandross’s version of “A House Is Not a Home.”

The song peaked at number one in the USA for a week on February 10, 2004 becoming Twista’s, West’s and Foxx’s first number one single. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
