Every day is Jody Watley Appreciation Day here at SoulBounce, but earlier this week was the official day designated for the world to celebrate the living legend that is Jody Watley. She commemorated the occasion on Monday with an appearance on Nick Cannon's syndicated daytime talk show to kick off his Classic Jams Week.
When it comes to classic jams, Jody has them by the pound. From her songs with Shalamar to her solo hits, Watley's catalog is solid gold. This year marks the 35th anniversary of her self-titled debut album, which is also cause for celebration, and Watley brought the party to Nick Cannon.
After sitting down for a fun interview with Nick, who was in fanboy mode and full of praise for the singer, Jody performed her iconic debut single "Looking For A New Love" from her iconic album Jody Watley. She was in her element singing the hit that had everyone in the studio up on their feet dancing. No one was having more fun than Nick, though, who found a buddy in the audience to carry on and cut up with him.
