Jody Watley. Paradise Update. Worldwide.

JodyWatley_ThankYou_Paradise  We have SOLD OUT of the first run of “PARADISE” CD’S!!! The response is overwhelming, and a new order is in for another round. The other items are also finding their way into shopping carts to represent Jody Watley.  The CD also has a nice surprise (well not now since I’m telling you) of the song ‘Everlasting’ written by longtime collaborator Rodney Lee and I.

On my Twitter feed, most music blogs are as usual more focused on who was arrested this week, reality stars, etc. Meanwhile – I give to you a glamorous and positive bit of music in this crazy world. Admittedly, I’ve shed a few tears this week pondering world events, violent conflicts, teenage suicides due to online bullying and humiliation (Matthew Burdette RIP), the MH17 plane that was shot down with all of the innocent people, families, children off for summer visits with relatives, vacations.. the girls in Nigeria who remain kidnapped and out of the headlines, Eric Garner being killed for no apparent reason by the NYPD, abuse and rapes of young girls in India, the violence in Chicago and on and on etc…my heart gets really heavy.

 

I hope this music can create a place of escape, solace, motivation, solace and joy for you, as much as it does for me – now more than ever. Truly for my diehard fans – worldwide. “PARADISE” is also now available for pre-order at iTunes everywhere. Thanks again.

Soulbounce Revisits Jody Watley’s 1993 Release “Intimacy”

If you slept on the album, it’s a nice one to discover for the first time or revisit or you haven’t played it in a while. I’d already made a decision with my third album to broaden the scope of my artistry and the songs I wrote and recorded – not wanting to be trapped in the pop box and all that that entailed. I’d accomplished what I’d wanted with my first two albums and wanted to move on creatively. This album also went against the grain of Hip Hop and New Jack Swing which was the dominating sound of this era.

“Intimacy” remains a warm and beautiful album written and recorded during the demise of my marriage and a difficult time in my personal life.
