"Joints & Jam" is the debut single by American hip hop group Black Eyed Peas, taken from their debut studio album, Behind the Front. The song features the vocals of Ingrid Dupree. The song is featured in the Bulworth soundtrack. A remix of this song, titled "That's the Joint", appears on the group's fifth studio album, The E.N.D. The song samples "Love Till The End Of Time" by Paulinho da Costa and Hill sings a reworking of Frankie Valli's "Grease". The song was sampled in The Nextmen's "Amongst The Madness" which appeared in the classic video game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3.

Music video[edit]

The music video starts with a boy who gets sucked into the screen, will.i.am sees him and helps him, but gets himself stuck to the screen. While will.i.am is singing his verse, apl.de.ap and Taboo see him stuck to the screen, they also get stuck to the screen and drop all their food and drinks. Kim Hill is seen in the video but she and the other people in the background do not get stuck to the screen. At the end of the video, a remix of "Fallin' Up" featuring a sample from Barry White's version of "Standing in the Shadows of Love" begins and the three members of Black Eyed Peas are seen house dancing.
