Grace Jones ‎– Nipple To The Bottle (1982)

Grace Jones (born 19 May 1948) is a Jamaican singer, songwriter, model, record producer, and actress. She was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica and raised by her grandparents. At 13 she moved with her siblings to their parents’ home in Syracuse, New York. Jones started out as a model, initially in New York state, then in Paris, working for Yves St. Laurent, Claude Montana, and Kenzo Takada, and appearing on the covers of Elle, Vogue, and Stern working with Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, and Hans Feurer.

“Nipple to the Bottle” was the lead single from Jones’ sixth studio album, Living My Life. The song was released in some territories as a double A-side single with “The Apple Stretching”. In some countries, the single B-side featured “Cry Now, Laugh Later” or a dub version of “My Jamaican Guy” – all of these three tracks would later receive separate single releases. The front cover uses an image taken from her A One Man Show performance of “Demolition Man”, with a group of Grace Jones “look-alikes” marching on across the stage. The song was performed by Grace in Julien Temple’s 1983 film It’s All True, made for BBC Arena series.

The single met with a considerable success, reaching Top 20 on Billboard R&B and dance charts. It did exceptionally well in New Zealand, where it became a number 3 hit.
