I’m not generally an artist that gets hyped on views and that sort of thing..but I must say it’s a great feeling to see how quickly ‘Dancer’ has spread throughout Facebook – with over 200,000 views in 5 days. For a veteran artist..this must be some sort of record. The thing that made me happiest as well was the mother from Australia who’s 7 year old son Ollie or as he wants to be called “Bboy Elite” saw the video…and then watched over and over leading to him wanted her to film him dancing to the music of ‘Dancer’ so I could see it (watch it on my Facebook.com/JodyWatleyOfficial). That is what the song is about, the concept of the video – lose yourself – get IN the music.
