Chameleon will be Jody's 10th solo album, following up The Makeover, which debuted at #1 for Virgin Megastore Exclusive in 2006.
"I'm excited," states Dedry Jones of the Music Experience Concert Series. "It's Jody Watley - still hot after all these years. Her music has stood the test of time and still sounds as good as it did years ago. I am more than thrilled that Jody is our debut artist for this concert series. With Jody just coming off sold-out dates in Japan that just adds to the level of excitement. She will also be doing a revamped version of her concert that has never been seen in her hometown, Chicago."
Jody's performance in Chicago June 25th is also in celebration of Dedry Jones' commitment to promoting "real music" for more than 20 years.
