Though my music continues and spans decades of various genres – being a part of an era of music that was so much fun, full of variety from pop, dance, R&B, rock, punk, new wave.. from the music to the clothes is truly special,” said Watley.

She added, “I appreciate Sirius XM for having me on again. I was a guest DJ on BK Kirkland’s The Groove in 2020.”
