Whitney Joins The J.A.Ms was the first JAMs single since the release of 1987. On it The JAMs mashed the funky guitar from Isaac Hayes’ “Theme From Shaft” with the refrain from “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston, interspersed by King Boy D begging her to “join the JAMs”.
Despite the heavy sampling throughout the whole track Whitey Joins The J.A.Ms did not meet the same fate as the previous JAMs single and album.
Though being a single track release only, an alternate version later appeared on the second LP of Shag Times.
