The makeover of the CHIC classic ‘I Want Your Love’ written and prodcued by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play, earning Watley her 14th career #1 (13 as a solo artist) in 2007; the second single from the iTunes Top #3 Top Electronic Album (2006).
When I perform in concert, one of the things I enjoy is leaving room for spontaneous moments for those of us onstage or those priceless moments an artist can never plan for with the audience. I feed on the love and energy – we all do.
This is a snippet of my makeover of the Diana Ross, Pam Sawyer penned classic ‘Love Hangover’. Though I did record a more faithful version of the original; it’s the downtempo ambient version I like the most for my style. Levi Seacer, a former member of Prince’s NPG is a stellar musician and a recent addition to my band provides that classic raw blend of soul, funk and rock. He took the vibe up several notches on this particular night. My band kicks ass, as does my show in the most unexpected ways. Don’t miss out the next time I’m in your town – I don’t come around often. There’s something to be said for rare, memorable and special occasions.
