Photos from Act 1 of the concert – more wardrobe changes followed from a high energy and visually cutting edge (of the time) show! Within a month or so, I was able to bring this concert to another sold-out experience at Universal Amphitheater – some of that footage is captured in my “Everything” video. It was a who’s who of celebrities, artists, and a diverse audience white, latino, asian, black and beyond in the house that night.

Jody Watley Drops Still A Thrill, Takes Us To Paris On This Day in 1987

Released #OTD April 27, 1987

“Still A Thrill” 

Written by: Jody Watley & Andre Cymone

Produced by Andre Cymone, David Z.

Billboard Charts #3 Hot R&B, #8 Dance, #56 Hot 100

The first artist or entity allowed to film a music video in the Paris Opera House, thank you to director Brian Grant.

“I wanted to showcase my power register in the vocal range, initially a concept to present to Grace Jones as a possible duet that didn’t come to fruition. Andre slayed this groove and then I came up with the title, theme melody and lyrics, it was magic and an instant if not underrated funk jam. It was a hit but faltered somewhat on the pop side because it was so different from ‘Looking For A N ew Love’. It was important to me at this time to showcase as well that black girls could be different, edgy, and international.I loved those Duran Duran videos shot on location.

The theme of the video was ‘Paris By Night, it always makes me smile when people tell me they have made it a point to travel to Paris and go to the Opera House and take photo’s on the grand entrance staircase. There is no choreography or choreographer to show me what to do, no stylist to tell me what was cool to wear. All the dancing is freestyle and created in the moment with Tyrone Proctor who I’d known from my Soul Train days as a teenager. Another fact that distinguishes me from other artists at that time – no team of dancers, high style and singular focus. I didn’t want to be like anyone else and was clear of my vision of who I am.”

Jody Watley Appreciation Day On Nick Cannon Show Repeat Airing

Nick Cannon and Jody Watley – Classic Jams Week.

Jody Watley – Classic Jams Week Performing the Grammy Nominated Number 1 Solo Debut Single “Looking For A New Love”

The Nick Cannon Show rebroadcast the Jody Watley appearance from February 2021 on April 20. In case you missed the original broadcast and repeat – you can check it out on Youtube – Here

The show was upbeat, exuberant and Nick should get props for having such a positive and fun show though it has now come to an end. It’s always great when veteran artists like myself with hits, history and influence – have the booking opportunity often unavailable on many shows in favor of younger artists.

Best wishes to Nick Cannon and staff in future endeavors.
