Today’s Oldies Sunday entry comes from Model/Singer/Actress, Grace Jones. Titled “Pull Up To The Bumper” and produced by Chris Blackwell and Alex Sadkin for Island Records in 1981, Grace’s lyrics were depicted to have sexual connotations and of course sparked some controversy at that time. With lyrics like “Pull up to my bumper baby, with your long black limousine..“, various media outlets refused to play it. It was revealed years later that the lyrics were not meant to have a sexual theme.
“Pull Up To The Bumper” was the third single off her fifth album, Nightclubbing, which was released in 1981. With her “New Wave” style of music that incorporated a fusion of uptempo Funk and R&B, the single became a hit. The song charted high in many countries and peaked at #2 on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart. With its success, “Pull Up” was remixed many times and was covered by Dancehall artist Patra (Lady Patra) in 1995. Over the years it has been covered by other acts and even sampled on Hip Hop singles by Spice 1, Coolio and more. With her talents as a Model, Actress and Singer, Grace Jones went on to be a household name and a huge influence to many in the entertainment world boasting many more hits along the way.
Thank You Grace Jones for this timeless gem.

Take a picture! Strike a pose! Today’s new video comes from Dancehall artist Chi Ching Ching. Titled “Fashionable King” and directed by DK Konsepp and Must Rich Films, we see Chi Ching Ching shopping, clubbing, chilling on the beach and recording in the studio all while being stalked by photographers and a very determined fan. A bit hilarious with the stalker being at every location Chi Ching Ching’s arrives at, and the lyrics to the song. Not a bad effort, I like how in some scenes the artist’s pose is turned into a magazine cover. Lol at the classroom scene. What do you think of “Fashionable King“?
