Fashion forward visuals, a groundbreaking collaboration “Friends” ft Eric B & Rakim and one of MTV’s most nominated videos “Real Love” directed by David Fincher – the concept of “Larger Than Life” was the mindset of going big for your dreams – make it memorable – make it big! Some of my favorite non singles are “Something New” “For Loves Sake” “Once You Leave” .. proud of the entire album! Loved the tour as well, despite efforts behind the scenes to undermine and sabotage it – saving that for my memoir.
Happy Anniversary and here’s to always making life memorable, having a vision for yourself, making goals and exceeding expectations.

“Friends” peaked at number three on the Hot Black Singles chart in July 1989, but the big news is it managed to do what no previous R&B/Rap collaboration had done before: crossover to the Hot 100 charts. “Friends” reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1989. ” – Okayplayer

“As ‘Rona continues to plague our lives and put everyone on the sick and/or shut-in list, it’s hard to remember that life really and truly will go on – even if it’s not the way we planned. As we roll with the punches and pivot accordingly, living legend Jody Watley reminds us to keep living, keep loving and keep moving forward on her latest musical offering, “The Healing (Redtop Remix).” Watley wrote the tranquil track just before the global pandemic and, like most age-old wisdom, it is right on time.
