MCA Records Presents Jody Watley With Platinum Album For Solo Debut – Classic Rewind Photo.

Knocked it out of the park from the first single “Looking For A New Love” and first album – Jody Watley. I’ll be sharing highlights throughout 2022 and doing celebration concerts in select cities, due to the ongoing pandemic. I’m so thankful for everyone involved in this record, especially Jheryl Busby who understood me – look how he’s smiling in this photo, like a proud Papa! He was forced out of MCA on my second album – but we did the damn thing on this – all involved. Rest In Glory Jheryl Busby and Louil Silas Jr.

Looking forward to celebrating the 35th Anniversary Friday 1.28.22 Sycuan Casino Resort 8 PM in concert – all I can say is this will be a festive night – it’s also a pre-birthday celebration too.

Always believe in yourself and follow YOUR OWN path, that will always be my message to the world.

“I’d met with other labels. Jheryl Busby of MCA got me right away. He’d worked with Donna Summer at Casablanca Records another woman with a strong artistic vision, a songwriter and force of nature. I ultimately I chose MCA over labels like Warner Brothers, A&M, CBS – because the vibe was right knowing Jheryl understood and respected my artistic vision and sense of self from the first meeting.

I’m eternally grateful, he galvanized the entire label and promotional team

35th Anniversary solo debut vibes all month of January.
