Kazaam is the original soundtrack of the 1996 film starring Shaquille O'Neal. The soundtrack was released by Perspective/A&M Records on June 19, 1996. It featured two hit singles, Nathan Morris (of Boyz II Men)'s "Wishes", which made it to number 86 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 56 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop singles & tracks, and Subway's "I'll Make Your Dreams Come True", which made it to number 64 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop singles and tracks.
