With artistic director, choreographer, dancer, singer Rosero McCoy as co-collaborator one of music's most enduring icons Jody Watley steps in front to a 'concept dance video' to her new song "DANCER' the from Remixed Collection. Watley has continued to be aligned with dance music with many of her releases and remixes especially in the 00's / 10's. McCoy, a renowned choreographer to this generation has recently started the trend of the 'concept video' with actress/artist Keke Palmer; shortened pieces with a special focus and generally not the full version of a song, more of a dub style mix. He states "Kids are really checking for long form video they way they used to. We wanted this to be at a minute and a half..but we made this one longer to really showcase the dancers. Everything we're doing is about pushing things forward..and of course it's cool Jody wanted us to have our moment in it too."
Nate Smith and McCoy make a cameo at the beginning and end of the piece, as a nod to their support of each other and the comaraderie they share onstage and off. They all began as dancers as catalyst into singer and performing.
In less than 4 full days, the video has generated almost 200,000 views on Facebook.com/JodyWatley and can also now be viewed on Youtube.
For the 'Dancer' in you!
