2 songs, 1 sample... part 11; Grace Jones; My Jamaican Guy





"My Jamaican Guy"
was the lead single to
Grace Jones' 1982 album Living My Life,
her third and last album recorded
in the Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas.
The single was released in January 1983.

The song was released in various remixed
forms and was a sizeable hit.
It was also featured in her
music documentary A One Man Show,
in which Grace kisses her own image.

LeShaun; Wild Thang (1988)




LL Cool J; Doin It (1996)




Doin It
is the second single from
LL Cool J's sixth album, Mr. Smith,
and was released on February 20, 1996
for Def Jam Recordings.
Based around a sample of
Grace Jones' "My Jamaican Guy",
it featured production from
Rashad "Ringo" Smith and LL Cool J.

It also featured
LeShaun (who did the OG back in 1988),
but she did not appear in the music video,
as she was pregnant at the time,
so another woman takes her place and lip syncs.
"Doin' It" was yet another success for Cool J,
making it to #9
on the Billboard Hot 100 and #7 on the
Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Billboard charts.
