Los Angeles, CA – September 23, 2013: Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Jody Watley, one of  Pop/R&B and dance music’s most enduring and stylish trailblazers, returns with her new single “Nightlife.”

Ms. Watley, who has mastered a career in keeping a career in dance and R&B music going, continues her legacy on the shimmering dance floor classic, inspired by her well documented roots in funk and soul music. The veteran song stylist has created an energetic dance floor anthem that is innovative, while also paying homage to her many influences. “Nightlife” is available on iTunes and select digital outlets and limited edition 12″ vinyl. The single also features fellow original Shalamar lead singer Gerald Brown. Watley’s soulfully spirited, up-tempo album  Paradise is scheduled for release in early 2014 on her longtime imprint Avitone http://jodywatley.net/avitone/ 

“People love to dance to feel the groove,” says Jody. “I wanted ‘Nightlife’ to capture the spirit of vintage soul and deliver a song that people could play at either a house party, getting ready for a night on the town, at clubs, to get the dancers on the floor, or simply make people feel inspired to be fabulous. Everyone feels better dressed up, especially in difficult times.  From the song’s intro, to the energy on the track, we worked to make the music come alive,” adds Jody. Serving again as both performer, co-writer and co-producer on “Nightlife,” she collaborated with the emerging production duo Count de Money from the UK. “I’ve always been about the style of music. I wanted to paint a picture with the music and evoke an uplifting emotion. I find this missing in a lot of music today. Soul music is not just ballads, it has also always been about a quality rhythm with a message as well.  

Jody‘s career as a chart-topping hit maker has surpassed more than three decades in her successful career. Her last album The Makeover  was a #1 Top Electronic Albums on iTunes and produced three Top Ten Dance Singles.  Jody has achieved thirteen #1 singles in Dance and R&B, six Top Ten Hot 100 Singles, (including the influential and ground-breaking “Friends” featuring Eric B. and Rakim)  and fifteen R&B Top 40 records. Jody’s diversity in her music and continued embrace of being on the cutting edge is apparent on her collaborations with the young electro duo French Horn Rebellion and on their summer 2013 song “Dancing Out,” with a video premiere on Billboard. Additionally, she has collaborated with Stone Throw Records’ Boogie Funk Ambassador Dam-Funk, the UK’s Mercury Prize winners 4Hero, DJ Spinna and other cream of the crop soulful dance music producer/musicians.

Ms. Watley, who continues to groove on stages and clubs all over the globe, including an appearance at the 2013 Essence Festival, is no stranger to the world of dance music.  In 1987 she released her groundbreaking self-titled album which featured the hit single “Looking For A New Love.” The song became a pop/soul sensation that garnered her the coveted Grammy Award for Best New Artist and pioneered her career into fame to become an international star. Jody’s dose of her own distinct sense of style, fashion and individuality in her music and video from the song captured the attention of fans around the world. She became a trendsetting sensation, gracing the covers of some of the most prominent magazines, fashion layouts and early celebrity ad campaigns throughout the United States, Asia, Latin America and Europe. Her influence can still be seen and heard in younger female artists today.

Jody Watley continues to put genuine artistry and quality into everything she does, making each musical moment into a wonderful experience. There is no better way to wait for Paradise than to dance and enjoy the “Nightlife.”
