This week, Grace Jones was tapped as the latest guest on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show, during which she spoke about her new documentary Bloodlight and Bami, and how a night spent queuing outside Studio 54 led to Nile Rodgers creating one of his best hits.
On Sophie Fiennes’ new documentary, starring Grace Jones, the New York icon explained the meaning behind the title Bloodlight and Bami: a summation of “my professional recording life, my performance life, my home life in Jamaica. You get the bloodlight and the bami is eating at home with the family.”
During the interview, Jones received a round of applause as she emphasised the word “immigrants” after detailing her move from Jamaica to Syracuse. Towards the end of the segment, she unravelled the story behind Nile Rodgers’ 1978 hit Le Freak.
