In 2014, music journalist Dean Van Nguyen, in a cover feature for Wax Poetics, said of Ms. Watley “She’s one of the most prominent visionaries of her era, and one whose influence remains a key touchstone in contemporary pop music.”

“Everything I’ve ever done has been to be distinctively Jody Watley,” says the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/fashion icon when asked why she thinks she’s lasted over three decades in the cut-throat music industry. “From my first solo album through right now,” she says thoughtfully, “everything that I will ever do has to be authentic to me. It’s not so much about, ‘Oh, this is going to be popular,’ or ‘Oh, this is going to be a big hit.’ It’s always been so personal to me, everything that I do. The fans can feel that. They connect with the honesty. It’s in the music.”
