Jody Watley. DANCER Musings 1. Paradise Update.

JodyWatley_Paradise_EP_CD_CoverArt

“DANCER”  featuring Luminodisco from the current release “PARADISE” has remained a stand out favorite according to my hardcore fans. I was inspired to write it for the spirit of the dancer that lives in all of us, it’s about confidence. “Clock this confidence – this ‘aint no coincidence – baby I’ve got style..I can be ruler of the world, queen of technology — doctor, lawyer, 9 to 5’er..don’t matter I was born to shine..” Shine on no matter what you do and what your job is in life. Get it : Here at iTunes (also available at other digital outlets), available worldwide.

Jody Watley featuring SHALAMAR. Right In The Socket

Filmed at one of the sold out concerts in Japan at Billboard Live. It’s such a blessing to have such a loyal fan base in Japan and to sell out concerts and perform to packed houses off and on since the debut of my solo career. This show featured more dancing that I’ve done in recent years, coming out of a down-tempo ambient electro journey on my last few projects (Saturday Night Experience Vol. 1, Midnight Lounge, The Makeover).

A great time was had by all, and it was a fun way to reintroduce songs from SHALAMAR fitting perfectly with the disco soul theme of PARADISE.

This is not a reunion endeavor with the classic lineup (1979-1983). If that happens it will be a different vibe of course. This is a fresh take with new young talent, among others renowned dancer/choreographer Rosero McCoy (Usher, Beyonce, Britney, Justin Timberlake, America’s next Best Dance Crew, Disney’s Shake it Up and The Sing Off among others). The first half of the new show is SHALAMAR, and then it turns to Jody Watley hits and new music. This is a party!

Jody Watley Christmas Song Rewind. My Love Santa Claus

Thank you to Mervin Malone Jr. for uploading “My Love, Santa Claus.” Recorded exclusively for a Japanese release with Cyber X in 2003. This was the first time I’d done ‘trance’ the various genres I’ve explored over the years.

This is stark contrast to my jazzy chilled out rendition of “Christmas Time Is Here” from A Charlie Brown Christmas – my favorite holiday album.

Music. Creativity and Style. More Paradise Candids.

Ms. Jody Watley Mentor, Pen Pal, Dermatologist, Inspiration, Visionary and the only person to envisioned me on Broadway Thanks for the music but most of all for being MS. WATLEY and allowing me to share my out of the box thoughts without calling the white coats."

It’s In The Music with Paradise.

I can’t think of another collection of music, where there’s this type of organic and very fan-centric organic approach – with a sense of community sharing an exclusive item like ‘PARADISE.’ I look at it like a piece of art, as time goes on not everyone will be able to say and show this – much like works of art. This isn’t about press or gossip – just the music, the love, the glamour, the message. What a concept! Celebrate life, love, friends, family, home and music.
