One of the positives of Twitter is being reminded of things like this – on August 10 hit single “Don’t You Want Me” was released. Written by Jody Watley, Franne Golde and David Bryant. Franne and I became best friends since the day we met for this session. It’s one of the few songs I’ve co-written and shared lyrical tasks – songwriting is so personal; but we all hit it all so well. Bernard Edwards from CHIC and Power Station was the producer and the remix which was the version that to it to the Hot 100 and the top of the Billboard Dance charts is by Francois K.

The video would be directed by Dominic Sena and would star my now ex-husband and former collaborator and co-producer Andre Cymone. My brother John is also in the video which was filmed in downtown Los Angeles.

On Saturday, July 18th, the most infamous disco dance party in Los Angeles, Giorgio’s housed at the Standard, Hollywood hosted an once in a lifetime performance by Grammy-winning multi-platinum singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur Jody Watley. Watley, one of Pop/R&B and dance music’s most enduring and stylish trailblazers, returned with the newly Reloaded Shalamar ® that features Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy which released on 7.17.15. The performance served as the launch for the newly Reloaded Shalamar ® and the release of their sexy new single “SlowDance” that has been celebrated worldwide in all digital outlets through Watley’s longtime imprint Avitone Recordings. This is the first single for the modern trio and the first official single release for Shalamar ® since 1990 in it’s earlier recording history.


Disco lovers were in awe as Watley commanded the stage. The jaw dropping performance proved Watley has not missed a beat since Shalamar’s ® last release as the crowd danced the night away in awe of the amazing performance they were able to witness. Always fashion forward Watley was wearing a black sequence Chanel coast while LA’s fashion set was out in full force such as designer Michael Schmidt, shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau (named a shoe in his last season collection called “The Watley”), John Eshaya (JET) Marcy Medina (WWD), celebrity make-up Kathy Jeung, and celebrity hair stylist Peter Savic. Some other attending notables included: celebrity photographer Greg Gorman, actress Tisha Campbell, comedian Craig Robinson (The Office), famed hollywood interior Designer Cliff Fong, Billy Woodruff (Director), and Ed Patuto (Broad Museum).

Thought of The Day. Be Your Own Story.

This excerpt from Toni Morrison really resonated with me, it’s great food for thought. Live your life – set the tone and theme – change it when you feel like it. Don’t worry about other people’s expectations or opinions – we all have our own lives to live and shouldn’t waste time trying to conform what others think our journey should be about – because it may make them feel more comfortable.
