I’ve never been to Brazil and am extremely excited to be going there in June with my newly reloaded SHALAMAR. Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and I are having a great time and continuing to bond offstage and improve upon what we’re doing onstage.
When writing the lyrics to my single and collaboration with Count de Money titled “Nightlife” from PARADISE, I totally channeled classic disco but at the same time focused on how to bring that love of the music, the spirit and soul of it into the now. The concept was always of a ‘worldwide phenomenon’ – that journey continues. It’s in the music!
“NIGHTLIFE” peaked in the Top 20 on Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Singles in 2014 and went into the Top 5 Commercial Pop and Urban in the UK. Music lovers continue to discover the song which is available at digital outlets around the world.
“DANCER” featuring Luminodisco from the current release “PARADISE” has remained a stand out favorite according to my hardcore fans. I was inspired to write it for the spirit of the dancer that lives in all of us, it’s about confidence. “Clock this confidence – this ‘aint no coincidence – baby I’ve got style..I can be ruler of the world, queen of technology — doctor, lawyer, 9 to 5’er..don’t matter I was born to shine..” Shine on no matter what you do and what your job is in life. Get it : Here at iTunes (also available at other digital outlets), available worldwide.

Grammy winner Jody Watley, one of Pop/R&B and EDM’s most enduring and stylish trailblazers, returns with a shimmering dance floor classic inspired by both her well documented roots in disco funk soul and her love of the gilded era of dance and it’s legendary bastions of groove and fashion, from NYC’s Studio 54 to Paris’ Les Baines Douche with a sly nod to the underground dance style ‘Waacking.’ An authentic bonus are guest backing vocals from original Shalamar male lead Gerald Brown. Destined for international runways, dance floors and beyond, this party jam is irresistible from start to finish.
