Released #OTD March 27, 1989:

“Larger Than Life”

The platinum second Solo album

by GRAMMY® winner Jody Watley

Featured Billboard Multi-Chart Top 10 Hits

“Real Love”

“Friends” (ft. Eric B. & Rakim *groundbreaker)

“Everything”

Along with the breezy 4th single “Precious Love”

Fashion forward visuals, a groundbreaking collaboration “Friends” ft Eric B & Rakim and one of MTV’s most nominated videos “Real Love” directed by David Fincher – the concept of “Larger Than Life” was the mindset of going big for your dreams – make it memorable – make it big! Some of my favorite non singles are “Something New” “For Loves Sake” “Once You Leave” .. proud of the entire album! Loved the tour as well, despite efforts behind the scenes to undermine and sabotage it – saving that for my memoir.

Happy Anniversary and here’s to always making life memorable, having a vision for yourself, making goals and exceeding expectations.

The Grammy Award winner is one of the architects of 21st century pop culture.

“We are excited to name Jody Watley as our membership ambassador,” Kara Duke, Development and Membership Manager at NMAAM said in a statement on March 1. “Black Music finally has a home and with your support, we can make sure it will be here to inspire visitors for years to come.” Read Full Feature on BET.com
