"U Make Me Wanna" is a song by American hip-hop artist Jadakiss, released as the third and final single from his second studio album, Kiss of Death. The song features American singer Mariah Carey and was produced by record producer Scott Storch.
Billboard called this duet a highlight on album. Hip Hop DX editor J-23 wrote: "it had disaster written all over it, but it is actually some really slick shit with a killer flute loop." Jon Caramanica of Rolling Stone wrote: "When he's (Jadakiss) undone, it's by tinkertoy production on tracks such as the insipid Mariah Carey vehicle "U Make Me Wanna." The Situation's Samantha Watson wrote: "Fans of Mariah Carey will like the track ‘U Make Me Wanna’, the distinctive Mariah vocals with Jadakiss laying down lyrics, the track plays on an Egyptian like sound with added synthesised beats, not one of the best singles but it is one you can listen to." USA Today's Steve Jones called this song "thug love anthem." Aqua Boogie of Vibe wrote that love themed "U Make Me Wanna" shows that Jada has more to offer than body counts and gun talk." Rapreviews was favorable: "e even shows love for the ladies on the Mariah Carey-blessed "U Make Me Wanna."
The song was already available for digital download in June 2004, but only entered the Billboard Hot 100 in November 2004 at number 75. It eventually peaked at number 21. At the second Annual GV Music & Fashion Awards of Groovevolt, "U Make Me Wanna" was nominated in the Best Song Collaboration by Duo or Group - Hip Hop category.
