Jody ‎– Where The Boys Are (1984)

Jody Vanessa Watley (born January 30, 1959) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and one of the defining iconic artists of the 1980s whose music crosses genres from Pop, R&B, Jazz, Dance and Electronic Soul. In 1987, she won the Grammy Award for “Best New Artist.” Along with Janet Jackson and Madonna, she ranks as one of MTV Video Music Awards most nominated female artists ever, with six nominations for her ‘Real Love’ video.

Post-Shalamar, Watley moved to England, and while there she recorded a guest vocal with British Jamaican roots reggae group Musical Youth for their album Different Style. She also recorded demos with Gary Langan, Anne Dudley and J.J Jeczalik (who later became Art of Noise). A brief stint with Phonogram Records where two singles were released (in the UK, Europe & Australia – though crucially not America) under the moniker “Jody” (no second name), “Where the Boys Are” and “Girls Night Out.”

“Where The Boys Are” was written by Jody Watley & Bruce Woolley (Video Killed The Radio Star) and produced/engineered by Gary Langan.
