Jody Watley and SRL Announce New Video and Single

While “Waiting In Vain” remains in the Smooth Jazz Top 10, Jody Watley again shows no signs of slowing down or clinging to past glories. Her new group Jody Watley & SRL will release their 4th single and video titled “The Passion” written and produced by the trio, with a video directed by young talent Damien Sandoval this summer.

The members had this to say:

“People ask what is SRL.. we are a Soul Revolution Of Love put forth in our music, live performances and through our budding fan community. The Passion is all about that.. love, living and the fire within.” -Jody Watley

Rosero Mccoy of SRL says “We’re building something new for ourselves and anything against the grain feels revolutionary to us.”

“Each video we bring something new and fresh. It’s dope to be a part of something we are creating together not something from the past, although we do draw on inspiration from soul R&B for sure, it’s one of the genres I grew up on.” – Nate Allen Smith

Often referred to by many of her devoted fans as “The Queen Of Cool” the singer, songwriter and founder of her independent label Avitone continues to fuel quality music, and one of the few black women in the game as a longstanding artist to continue to do what she’s from her Shalamar years, solo artist and now founder of a successful and much buzzed about new group.

I love this fan made video by The Fantasy Clinic – the video is a mashup of the teen me on Soul Train blended with current visuals created by Ray Easmon out of the U.K. The remix keeps the essence of the song with a nice deep house edge – which you know I live for!
