It was a Washington D.C, takeover! Television, Concerts, Radio and New Single Release. #SRL #JodyWatley
It was early and we were performing this for the first time..after nearly missing the show being stuck in traffic. All in all – a good time was had by everyone! I’m thrilled at the reception and enthusiasm for me as a veteran solo artist and to parlay that goodwill to this new group is very fulfilling. The Mood – is great!
Oct, 3, 1987 – “Don’t You Want Me” is the third single from singer Jody Watley’s eponymous debut album. The song was produced by Bernard Edwards of Chic-fame and written by Jody Watley, Franne Golde and David Paul Bryant.

Via Instagram, fan review of the Deep Water Amphitheater concert really sums the experience Saturday night July 30, 2016 up nicely.
Jody Watley, performing ‘Dancer’ joined by Shalamar Reloaded’s Rosero McCoy, Nate Allen Smith and Allegra Dance Crew -a celebration of dance and inner confidence from ‘Paradise’ EP and ‘Dancer’ Remixed.
A studio snippet, Nate came up with this song while singing in the shower while we in Japan for concerts at Billboard Live in January. So far from the post on other social media, fans are digging this snippet.
We just dropped O.R.I.G.in.A.L single and video, while always creating, exchanging ideas and thinking of ways to make our concerts pop even more than they do. It’s great to be building our own catalogue and brand identity – Music. Dance. Style.
