Slow Jam definition

A '''slow jam''' is an umbrella term for music with [rhythm and blues|R&B] and soul music influences. Slow jams are commonly R&B ballad ballads or [downtempo] songs. The term is most commonly reserved for soft-sounding songs with heavily emotional or romantic lyrical content. This definition has led to intense debate over whether particular songs should be classified as a "slow jam", e.g. [Ginuwine]'s 1996 hit single "[Pony (Ginuwine song)|Pony]". The common use and possible origin of this term traces back to 1983 when [SOLAR Records|Solar Records] group [Midnight Star] recorded the song "Slow Jam" on their album ''[No Parking on the Dance Floor]''. First use of the term Slow Jam in radio was in the 80's with Kevin "Slow Jammin" James who developed the radio show Slow Jam for WKYS Radio in Washington, D.C.. James was also instrumental in the development of the extremely popular Slow Jams "The Timeless" Collection series on Right Stuff Records. WKYS trademarked the name Slow Jam in behalf of Mr James. Kevin eventually trademarked Slow Jam in his name., e.g. [[Ginuwine]]'s 1996 hit single "[[Pony (Ginuwine song)|Pony]]". The common use and possible origin of this term traces back to 1983 when
