About Grace Jones
As for the day Grace Jones net worth is pretty modest: it amounts to $7 million and is disproportionate to the influence this woman had in music industry. A several current day celebrities, including Lady Gaga and Rihanna, has publicly claimed they were inspired by Grace‘s image and music. Grace‘s influence on the later of these singers, Rihanna, was pretty obvious: she has worn a mask and cloak very similar to Jones‘ signature accessories in several concerts. During her career, which started in the early 1970s, Jones has recorded 10 studio albums, released 8 compilation albums and over 50 singles. But these numbers do not represent the impressiveness of her career, hence in the rest of this article we are going to discuss it in greater detail. In addition, we are going to point out some of the most interesting facts concerning her personal life.
Grace’s parents, especially her father, were deeply religious and this caused numerous fights among the family members. In accordance with the tenets of their religious denomination, her parents believed that a decent person should only use his singling ability to glorify God and we all know that was not what Grace did. In fact, due to his daughter’s career in music industry Grace’s father was denied a chance to become a bishop and it seems he was having trouble trying to forgive her for this. But Grace’s career choice was not the only thing causing her parents’ discontent. It is no secret that the star loved the nightlife of New York and was often seen in nightclubs drinking. Both nightclubbing and going out road-tripping, taking acid with Hell’s Angels was in sharp contradiction to her parents’ religious beliefs. But Jones was not going to give up her dreams in order to make peace with her family. If she did, I doubt that Grace Jones net worth would have come anywhere close to $7 million.
Jane has been a productive recording artist since 1977 and each of the first four of her albums charted in a t least one country, often on the other shore of the Atlantic, in Italy, Sweden or UK. But it was only in the 1980s that Grace Jones net worth started growing with a considerable speed. This happened as the singer released the album Nightclubbing. Featuring several tracks that became world famous hits, such as “Demolition Man“, “Pull Up to the Bumper” and “Walking in the Rain”, the album entered the charts (and even Top 10) in several countries, including Germany, France, New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Sweden and UK. Perhaps the reason why the album appealed to such a wide audience can be found in the commentary printed by Melody Maker:“ Now here’s an album with something for everyone: reggae, electronics, disco, blues – even a snatch of salsa funk. The incredible thing is that it all gels together so well“. The albums that followed Nightclubbing were just as popular both critically and commercially.
