"U Make Me Wanna" is a song recorded by American rapper Jadakiss for his second solo album "Kiss of Death" (2004). It was co-written by Jadakiss, American R&B singer Mariah Carey (a featured artist on the track) and Scott Storch, who produced the song. It was released as the album's third single in 2005 (see 2004 in music) and became Jadakiss' third top forty single in the United States and Carey's twenty-sixth. The song is a Middle Eastern-influenced club banger in which Jadakiss tells Carey that she "makes him wanna" while Carey spells out "K-I-S-S, Me".

Recording and release

Jadakiss and Carey had worked together in the past on the "Bad Boy" remix of "Honey" (on which Jadakiss appears as part of The Lox), and "Miss You", which was intended for Carey's album "Charmbracelet" (2002) but was shelved until later. The pair teamed up again for the DJ Clue-produced remix of Carey's single "We Belong Together" (2005). "U Make Me Wanna" is the only Jadakiss-Carey collaboration to have appeared on a Jadakiss album. In reverse, all tracks, with the exception of "U Make Me Wanna", can be found on Carey albums.

Carey created the hook of the song by accident when she heard the instrumental track and spontaneously sang "K-I-S-S, Me". [ [http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1493272/20041029/story.jhtml With Lots Of Help, Mariah Readies New LP - News Story | Music, Celebrity, Artist News | MTV News ] ]

The single peaked at number twenty-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Compared to other singles from "Kiss of Death", its performance was average. Lead single "Time's Up" had failed to reach the top forty, while the follow-up single "Why" peaked just outside the top ten. "U Make Me Wanna" reached the top ten on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, and its U.S. chart performance was entirely derived from airplay statistics; no commercial 12" maxi-single was issued for the song. "U Make Me Wanna" became one of the bigger hits Carey appeared on at the time, before the release of singles from her fourteenth album "The Emancipation of Mimi" (2005). The single remained on the Hot 100 for thirteen weeks . It did not enter the top ten as "I Know What You Want" did, a Busta Rhymes single on which Carey guest-starred, but reached higher positions than several of her own singles from this period.

The single's video, directed by Sanaa Hamri, features Jadakiss exploring his summer home with a woman who "makes him wanna". Carey appears at the end of the video cavorting with a small crowd at the home.
