Throwback: Grace Jones-Nipple To The Bottle


Grace Jones’s sixth studio album Living My Life had “Nipple To The Bottle” as its lead single. The reggae and funk-flavored dance track was another collaboration between Jones and rhythm master Sly Dunbar. Jones’s scorn for her immature lover Jean Paul-Goude lit up dance floors and did well on the R&B and dance charts. Goude, who was also her collaborator, photographed the cover with Rob ‘O Connor and the picture became another iconic image for Jones. The singer, model and actress performed “Nipple To The Bottle” in Julien Temple’s 1983 film Its All True. Living My Life did well and became popular again in the ’90s when LL Cool J sampled “My Jamaican Guy” for his ’95 single “Doin It.” On June 10 until June 19th, 2022 Jones will curate the 27th Meltdown Festival in the UK.
