Jody Watley. Real Love Celebrates 25 Years.

When I look at my children, I think of the passage of time primarily, otherwise I just live life. Thinking it’s been 25 years since my second album and ‘Real Love’ makes me smile. I remain proud of the work. The single was written by Andre Cymone and I  – he the music, me the lyric and melody. The video was directed by David Fincher (who went on to become an Academy Award winning director) and who fulfilled my wish when I told him I wanted to be on the runway – fashion forward. It all holds up quite well 25 years later…and so have I!


Julio Castiglioni posted to my Facebook page today: “This week, 25 years ago, REAL LOVE reached the #2 in Billboard Hot 100. Good times in music!”
