My Jamaican Guy


Grace Jones was an excellent fashion model who became an even better musician. But more than anything, she was a genius maker of images. With inspiration from collaborators of such caliber as Jean Paul Goude, Helmut Newton, Claude Montana, Andy Warhol, and Nile Rodgers (among many other glitterati) Jones created a glamorous, otherworldly persona that combined everything from glam rock and disco to French chanson, drag shows to haute couture. This song is an ode to a love affair (with one of the less famous members of The Wailers) and a tribute to the singer’s native Jamaica. In typical Jones fashion, it seamlessly fuses a multitude of diverse interests.
