I'm The One You Need - Jody Watley
“I Want You” is my second favorite Jody song after “Looking For A New Love”. I was a huge fan up until her music started getting so hard to find back in the day. I used to perform “I Want You” in drag and treated it like it was the smash it was meant to be. Lol

She, along with co-writers/co-producers David Cole and Robert Clivillés and Sony were later sued by Kevin McCord, who claimed the song incorporated elements from his song "I Want To Thank You". The matter was eventually settled out of court.
