Exclusive Jody Watley Statement Re: Shalamar Controversy

Exclusive Jody Watley Statement Re: Shalamar Controversy

*I [Jody Watley] became the legal and registered trademark owner of Shalamar in May of 2014 after a thorough and lengthy examining process by the USPTO.

The acquisition was prompted in part to gain control by the ongoing use and misuse of my likeness and the continued commerce generated from the foundation I helped to build decades ago.

There are former members currently trying to confuse the public giving the impression there are two groups when in fact there is only one legal new and official Shalamar of which I am at the helm.

These brazen attempts seeking to undermine my rights are being handled by my attorneys regarding this matter.

Becoming owner allows me to revive the name for a new audience, to not get stuck in the safety net of nostalgia because I’m not interested in doing what I’ve already done. There is new merchandise for fans to purchase, with plans for new music and other exciting projects in the pipeline.

We have already begun building a social media presence beginning with a verified page on Facebook/ShalamarOfficial.

Joining me for the newly reloaded Shalamar are singer/dancer/choreographers Rosero McCoy and breakout young Ohio talent Nate Allen Smith.

Our dynamic stage show to which we’ve already been playing to sold-out audiences in the United States and Japan, with other scheduled concerts in the UK and Brazil breathes new life into classics “A Night To Remember,” “Take That To The Bank,” and “The Second Time Around” in a set that includes signature Jody Watley solo hits like “Friends,” “Looking For a New Love,” and “Don’t You Want Me,” as well as music from “Paradise.”

The album’s first single “Nightlife” was the 19 th Billboard Top 20 Dance hit; a UK Top 10 Commercial Pop and UK Top 5 soul hit. This is a new era for Shalamar and Jody Watley, artist and entrepreneur.

  1. Jody should just leave Shalamar classic memories in the vault for keepsake & just put out a solo project. Nobody is buying this bogus Shalamar ish. If Jody, Howard, & Jeffrey can’t come together & squash there differences after all these years, WE DONT WANT IT.

  2. Unsung has shown how these legal battles over use of a name always ends up in a weaker product and the wrong type of notoriety that casts a shadow of greed and ego over the group. She need to quit.
