Watley’s jazzy rendition of the quintessential holiday song “Christmas Time Is Here” from her favorite, Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” is streaming on all digital platforms. Click here to listen.

“This is an ambient and chill rendition perfect for warm cocoa, a laid-back atmosphere and a fireplace real or virtual” says Watley of the release on her longtime independent imprint Avitone Recordings. “Christmas Time Is Here is produced by longtime collaborator Rodney Lee (Saturday Night Experience, Midnight Lounge, The Makeover, Paradise) and myself.” 

“It makes me so happy that my rendition is resonating with everybody and listed as one of the top 12 Best New Holiday 2022 releases by NY Post.”

The brilliant songwriter, artist, entrepreneur, producer, and visionary has continued recording new music sharing her gift of artistry globally continuously showcasing versatility as a vocalist.

The beautiful icon in music, video, fashion and style, often referred to by her fans as “The Queen of Cool,” is one of the architects of 21st century pop and contemporary street style mixed with high fashion, her 1989 hit “Friends,” featuring hip hop/rap legends Eric B & Rakim, is the first pairing of pop/R&B/rap/dance to crossover into the Billboard Top 10 on multiple charts.

Watley’s vision — the trendsetting, forward thinking marriage of high fashion and street fashion with music in the 80s — long before it became the norm — along with her fusion of jazz and underground club culture — demonstrates her keen pop instincts and an ease with which she crossed, and still crosses, genres.
