One of the trio in Shalamar and Soul Train dancer, Jody Watley, smashed onto the charts with 6 big hits from her debut CD. Jody has funky dance tracks like “hasta la vista baby, I’m looking for a new love”, killer hip hop duets like “Friends” with Whodini, and touching love songs. Her best CD in my opinion was “Affairs Of The Heart”, it captured the true essence of Jody with a wide variety of styles. Here is a “spiritual” song from the disc that sadly failed to chart.
“LIV TONIGHT” NELLY with KERI HILSON
Nelly’s 5.0 CD released last year featured guest stars on almost every track including T.I., Diddy, T-Pain, Chris Brown, and this club banger with Keri Hilson. This song will get the fists pumping Jersey Shore-style with its infectious party beat accompanied by the energetic hook, “I just want to live tonight, live my life tonight”
“IF YOU WERE HERE TONIGHT” ALEXANDER O’NEAL
I had the pleasure of meeting Alex in Minneapolis outside of the studio. He is one of the greatest R&B voices of the 80’s. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis struck gold with their production with Alex. His legendary duets with Cherrelle include “Saturday Love”, “Never Knew Love Like This”. Sadly, Alex battled with drug addiction since the 90’s and his voice has never been a shame, it’s our loss, Alexander O’Neal what might have been!
