There was a time in 1987 where a day didn’t go by that I didn’t listen to Jody Watley’s debut album which spanned some of the biggest smash hits in pop/dance like “Looking For A New Love”, “Still A Thrill”, “Some Kind Of Lover” and my personal favorite “Don’t You Want Me” – a track I still play in all my DJ sets. It was songs such as these that nabbed Jody Watley a few number one hits and even a Grammy back in the day.
Over the years, she’s attempted to comeback quite a few times, with a few songs like her cover of Madonna’s “Borderline” and even working with indie wunderkids French Horn Rebellion recently, but it wasn’t until I heard “Nightlife” that I actually proclaimed…
Now, this isn’t no “let’s put in a minimal effort and see where this goes” comeback type of thing (Martika, I’m talking to you), the team behind Jody Watley’s new track “Nightlife” is none other than club and gay music pioneers Peace Biscuit. The same label team that has launched the likes of Cazwell and Amanda Lepore, in which you can really hear their influence on the track. To sum it up, “Nightlife” is everything internationally HUNTY.
Needless to say, I’m super excited about this. It’s the type of project that I’ve been Jody Watley to do for years and trust me, when you hear this the first time, you’re going to be screaming – “I need remixes to this – STAT.”
Strap on your most fabulous outfit, spray yourself in scented glitter and hit the streets with your drag on, “Nightlife” by Jody Watley is coming for you.
And for all you kids out there – get schooled here.
