Biography

Grace Jones’ Biography

Grace Jones secured a record deal with Island Records in 1977, which resulted in a string of dance-club hits. In the late 1970s, she adapted the emerging New Wave music style and adopted a severe, androgynous look with square-cut hair and angular, padded clothes. In 1981, her ‘Pull Up to the Bumper’ spent seven weeks at #2 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart, and became a Top 5 single on the U.S. R&B chart.[2] Although she has yet to become a truly mainstream recording artist, in the United States, much of Jones’s musical output is very popular in American clubs as many of the singles were hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance Airplay charts.

EXPAND FULL BIO

Jones was able to find mainstream success in Europe, particularly the United Kingdom, scoring a number of Top 40 entries on the UK Singles Chart. Jones’s most notable albums are Warm Leatherette, Nightclubbing and Slave to the Rhythm, while her biggest hits (other than ‘Pull Up to the Bumper’) are ‘I’ve Seen That Face Before (Libertango)’, ‘Private Life’, ‘Slave to the Rhythm’ and ‘I’m Not Perfect (But I’m Perfect for You)’. During the 1970s, she also became a muse to Andy Warhol, who photographed her extensively.[3][4] During this era she regularly went to the New York City nightclub Studio 54.  Jones’ is a capable actress and her acting occasionally overshadowed her musical output in America; but not in Europe, where her profile as a recording artist, was much higher. She appeared in some low-budget films in the 1970s and early 1980s. Her work as an actress in mainstream film began in the 1984 fantasy-action film Conan the Destroyer alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the 1985 James Bond movie A View to a Kill. In 1986 she played a vampire in Vamp, and both acted in and contributed a song to the 1992 film Boomerang with Eddie Murphy. In 2001, she appeared in Wolf Girl alongside Tim Curry.
