Jody Watley is the self-titled debut studio album by American singer Jody Watley, released on February 23, 1987, by MCA Records. Although Watley already found success as a part of the trio Shalamar, the impact of this album made Watley a cultural style icon in contemporary R&B, pop and dance music. Its success culminated in Watley winning a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1988 against fellow artists Breakfast Club, Cutting Crew, Terence Trent D’Arby and Swing Out Sister. The album also produced three top-ten singles on the US Billboard Hot 100: “Looking for a New Love” (#2), “Don’t You Want Me” (#6) and “Some Kind of Lover” (#10). The album has sold two million copies in the United States and over four million copies worldwide.
