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.

Jody Watley. PARADISE Update. Love.

This collection is really for my longtime fans new and not so new. Organic – and totally about the music. A quality collection that comes to you with heart, soul, the spirit of celebrating life, friends, good times and the sanctuary of home. The exclusive CD, features a surprise unlisted extra song “Everlasting.” Keep in mind that not only am I an artist, songwriter, producer, publisher, online boutique owner, trademark owner of Shalamar; add independent distributed label owner since 1995 for my Avitone imprint with a mantra of “Fueling Quality Music.”  How’s that for female empowerment?!

Jody Watley. A Song. A Top. A Shoe.

There are few artists that can say they’ve had a song “Jody” (by Jermaine Stewart), a top “The Jody” by Christos Garkinos for HSN, and now a designer shoe – that’s me Jody Watley.

I met  shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau on the dance-floor at Giorgio’s in Hollywood on the Sunset Strip. He was so shy, sweet and modest telling me how my style and integrity have inspired him since he discovered my music.  As soon as discovering his talent and design, I’ve become a major fan of his. His shoes have a special quality and as I told Billboard Magazine “You feel like a Queen with an edge.” It’s fantastic that Billboard is going outside the box and recognizing at last the connection between style, fashion and music. What caught their eye is the younger artists and actresses rocking ‘Jerome C. Rousseau’ on the red carpet. Move over Louboutin!

Little did I know, he’d do a tribute shoe to me “The Watley”..in typical understated fashion I was in attendance at a trunk show at his Hollywood atelier — when he quietly said “I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve designed a shoe in your honor.” I’d already ordered the shoe on display. Turns out he was on the money! You can order your “Watley” from his Fall 2014 Collection.

What can be about Jody new cd “Paradise”, other it should come with an warning label, play when you want to hear music that will move you body and soul! 1. Nightlife… Just classic dance song, from top to bottom 2. Dancer… Work it… She calling all dancers to come to the floor, but beats from this jam, calls you no matter what,,, I feel the sounds from “Thank God It’s Friday” in this. 3. The Dawn… Jody Watley give us a another example why she was seen as a great dancer on Soul Train,,, yea, yea, 4. Tonight’s the Night… Fair warning playing this if you’re at the gym, running or bike riding, it will pump you up into doing more sit-ups for that sexy outfit you want to wear that night,,, and you will hear this jam at the clubs…. Dance till the sun comes up. 5. Paradise… So chic, cool, slick,,, and great just to shake your head to,,, put a smile on you face, and a vision of the islands. Or is that just me…. 6. Sanctuary… In just a few words … Grown folks music,,, I have is jam on my playlist with other jams from Jody, Sia, Thievery Corporation and her good friend Rahsaan Patterson. Thank you Jody Watley for such sexy, wonderful music ‪#‎paradise‬ ‪#‎itsinthemusic‬

Chris Keen,
A deserving review Jody! Paradise is a stunning piece of music, the sequencing is perfect….each track flows beautifully to the next. It’s uplifting, exquisite dance music, retro with a modern twist! LOVE!! #serveit
