Grace Jones (born 19 May 1948) is a Jamaican singer, actress and model. Jones started out as a model, regularly appearing at the New York City nightclub Studio 54. 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 electronic music style and adopted a severe, androgynous look. Many of her singles were hits on ''Billboard'''s Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance Airplay charts, for example 1981's ''Pull Up to the Bumper'', which spent seven weeks at No. 2 on the U.S. dance chart. 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. Her most notable albums are ''Warm Leatherette'', ''Nightclubbing'' and ''Slave to the Rhythm'', while her biggest hits are ''Pull Up to the Bumper'', ''I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)'', ''Private Life'', ''Slave to the Rhythm'' and ''I'm Not Perfect (But I'm Perfect for You)''. Jones is also an actress. 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.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
