Jody Watley Named First Ambassador of The Museum of African American Music – BET

The Grammy Award winner is one of the architects of 21st century pop culture. She was a part of one of the earliest collaborations between Hip Hop and R&B when she worked with Eric B. & Rakim on the 1987’s “Friends.” Watley was also big into fashion, marrying a number of luxury brands with street fashion and music in the 1980s – long before it became normal.

Jody Watley Serves As Inspiration for Contemporary Designer A. Potts for Spring 2021 New York Fashion Week.

A. Potts Spring 2021

“..Potts showcased his Fall 2021 collection digitally which was inspired by Jody Watley’s 1987 music video for her song “Still A Thrill.” With it, Potts’ resulting meditation on light, shadow, darkness and the associated interpretations of these phenomena, led him to think about dance and movement. – Paper Magazine
