According to Spike Lee, from his Bad 25 documentary, "Shamone" "isn't just a cool way to say "come on," but MJ's tribute to soul singer Mavis Staples, who used it in a live version of "I'll Take You There" in 1975."

Today we lost a musical genius and perhaps the creator of what we now know as dance. We haven't lost what he taught us though - Shamone !

Originally coined by the great Michael Jackson, meaning, "come on". This incarnation was made new again by Whitney Huston on the television series, Being Bobby Brown. In a scene in which Whitney and Bobby go shopping for sunglasses, (findable on yout*be under,"Whitney and Bobby acting very crackish") Whitney enters the store feeling reeeeaaalllly good and exclaims, "Shamone!" This word now means. "I'm feeling so good today i just have to exclaim, "Shamone!"
-also, acceptable: Shamona!! for extra excitement!
-free pizza? Shamone!
-Gurlfriend, I look GOOD! Shamona!

Term used at the end of a sentence or on its own. Can be used loosely as a congratulations to someone, accolade, a “that’s right” comment, good job, razzing someone negatively or positively. Suitable replacement for terms such as ‘hell yeah’, ‘fuck yeah’. Almost always said with a sarcastic tone. Pronunciation is just like Michael Jackson’s pronunciation of the word. Pronunciation can be dragged out as well. Ex. ‘ Shaaamone!’ Can be used as a verb as well.
