“Looking for a New Love” is a song by American dance-pop singer Jody Watley. It was released in January 1987 as the first single from her eponymous debut album. The song became one of the biggest pop and R&B singles of 1987. Watley re-recorded and re-issued the song in various remixes in 2005.

History

The single hit number two for four consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in May 1987 and spent four weeks at number-one on the Billboard R&B chart. It is the only single between 1985 and 1990 in the United States to have spent four weeks in the runner-up position and not have reached the number one. The single was kept out of the top spot of the Hot 100 by Cutting Crew’s “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” and U2’s “With or Without You”, and would itself keep Club Nouveau’s Hot 100 number-one single “Lean on Me” out of the top spot of the R&B chart. It ranked number 16 on Billboard’s year-end chart for 1987.

The song also reached number-one on the RPM Singles Chart in Canada.

In 1988 the song was nominated for two Soul Train Music Awards for Best R&B/Soul or Rap Music Video, and Best R&B/Soul Single, Female. She was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
