1986 Flashback: Grace Jones Pull Up to the Bumper

On 18 January 1986, Jamaican supermodel Grace Jones reached number 12 in the UK with Pull Up to the Bumper.

The iconic singer, who lives in Denmark, but has a home in north London, is famous for her sexy looks and attitude.

Her lewd disco track was originally a US hit in 1981, but it took another five years to crack the UK market eventually becoming Jones’ biggest-selling single.
