Jody Watley and SRL. Looking Back to O.R.I.G.IN.A.L

Originally released May 7, 2016 O.R.I.G.IN.A.L got a lot of attention .. Many were pressed when we formed in 2015 and the attacks began. Our old page was constantly trolled up. Jody’s was blowing up with haters, online bullies and naysayers on how this thing wouldn’t work, and this and that, so we had to address it, have some fun with it and be bold about who WE are. We are Originals to this group and Jody Watley of course is an original in her trends. Writing a song and video about it all, complete with the anonymous trolls in it and each of us with our own verse.. We shook things up with this pared down trap soul sound and moved on, enduring the hate in the process, it made us stronger. We changed our name, focused on our new direction, more new music, just having fun with this. We inspired some folks we could see it and laugh about it. The same ones who hate are the ones to copy, mimic, or whatever, while we just focused building our own thing being creative, it’s all good.
2016? It seems like a lifetime ago already.
2018 started off with a hit single “The Mood” Alex Di Cio Remix (UK, Netherlands, Canada), lesson is to just keep believing and doing us, sold out shows traveling the U.S. and overseas making our own name slowly but surely, that’s what’s dope. A passion for living and life and building something new.

Our message is to keep doing your thing, no matter what people have to say..and make them watch you walk out with confidence!
