About Jody Watley
Jody Watley is an iconic singer, songwriter, and trendsetter who has had a profound impact on the music industry.
The beautiful icon in music, video, fashion and style is as prolific as anyone who’s ever set foot in a recording studio, and as proficient as anyone who’s ever decided to be a song lyricist. She is not only a great singer—she is a great songwriter, and great performer.
That persona—her willingness to tear down norms and traditional ideas setting a trend for modern-day women artists not to be boxed in has become her calling card.
As one of the architects of 21st century pop and contemporary street style mixed with high fashion, her 1989 hit “Friends,” featuring hip hop/rap legends Eric B & Rakim, is the first pairing of pop/R&B/rap/dance to crossover into the Billboard Top 10 on multiple charts.
A previous recipient of the BMI Medal of Honor for “Don’t You Want Me,” “Looking for a New Love,” and “Real Love” amongst others, Jody Watley was inducted into the Women Songwriter Hall of Fame in 2022 along with other notable songwriters including Marilyn Bergman, Gloria Estefan, Indigo Girls, Siedah Garrett, and Loretta Lynn.
As of 2018, Jody Watley is listed in Billboard Magazine as one of the top 25 dance artists of all time and in the top 60 hot 100 artists of all time. The National Museum of African American Music named Watley as their first ambassador in 2021 featuring her on two of their outdoor digital jumbotrons.
The Chicago native’s eclectic repertoire — R&B, hip-hop, house, jazz, pop, drum & bass, ambient, spoken word – is built on a positive vision and a strong taste for artistic and aesthetic risk.
