"Slow Motion" is a song by rapperJuvenile featuring Soulja Slim. It was released as a single in March 2004 and is Juvenile's only number one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song is an original production by Danny Kartel. It held the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks from August 7, 2004, and was the first number one for both Juvenile and Soulja Slim. It was the seventh song to reach #1 posthumously for a credited artist and also the first #1 hit for Cash Money Records.
Although not planned as a tribute, it came out as one of the more popular posthumous songs because of Soulja Slim's sudden death in November 2003, before the recording process was released (though the beat and lyrics had already been recorded by Soulja).
The "slow motion" of the title is the movement of a woman's body, with the lyrics proclaiming: "Uh, I like it like that / She working that back; I don't know how to act / Slow motion for me, slow motion for me / Slow motion for me; move it slow motion for me".
Washington D.C.-based international house DJ Dr. H along with his manager Mr. FT have been known to regularly employ the lyrics "you movin' too fast" in their act.
In the video, everyone wears black T-shirts with R.I.P. Soulja Slim in white text on the front and back. There are also people holding Thou shall not kill paperboard signs. In the middle of the video there are cameo appearances by the rappers Birdman and Lil Wayne.
Originally affiliated with the Cash Money roster, as a result of the huge success of the single Juvenile was signed to Atlantic Records shortly after topping the Billboard chart. The song was produced by Cash Money, but with the new deal a complementary contract was also signed allowing Juvenile to bring his newly formed UTP (Up Town Projects) label to Atlantic. The production on the album with the Williams duo was considered a one-time collaboration from then on.
"Slow Motion" was sampled by the American recording artist Kesha, in her song of the same title, featuring Three 6 Mafia. Though planned to be on her first album Animal, it was scrapped from the record and remains an unreleased track.
