"She's a Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked)" is a single by Carl Carlton. The song was written by Leon Haywood and became a major R&B hit, earning Carlton a Grammy Award nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male in 1982.

The track peaked at #22 in the U.S., and became a Gold record. It spent 21 weeks on the American charts, six weeks longer than his bigger hit, "Everlasting Love." It reached #34 in the UK Singles Chart.



"She's a Bad Mama Jama" also spent eight weeks at number two on the R&B/Soul chart. It was blocked from the top spot by Diana Ross's and Lionel Richie's song, "Endless Love".

Carlton's subsequent album, Carl Carlton, went gold in 1981. "She's a Bad Mama Jama" has since become a staple of compilation albums and soundtracks and is often sampled in rap music, including Foxy Brown and Dru Hill's Big Bad Mamma.
