It was the third and the last single off that album, and at the same time, her first single release on Island Records after having signed with the label. Portfolio The single version was heavily edited from its original album version being more than seven minutes long to a 3.5 minute track. Jones' fairly radical bossa nova interpretation of Édith Piaf's signature tune became her first international hit single and a staple of her repertoire. It was later performed as part of her 1981 A One Man Show, then the only track from her disco era to be included in the show. In Spain and Mexico the track was billed as 'La Vida en rosa' on the 7' single release, although it was not a Spanish version of the song. Jones' recording of 'La Vie en rose' was later re released a number of times in the early 1980s and finally reached #12 in the UK charts when re released as a double A side with 'Pull Up to the Bumper' in 1985. The single was certified Gold in France and Italy. A One Man Show Grace Jones about the song: 'That's a very special song to me. Oh God, I cry every time I sing it. I had quite a few French lovers, so every time I sing it I think about them.' It has sold 158,700 copies in France. The music video for the song was made using the chroma key technique. It presents Grace dancing and singing the song with the famous 1978 montage picture of herself in the background, which was later used for the cover of her 1985 Island Life compilation. The video begins with Grace wearing a rose patterned coat. Having removed it, the singer dances in a scant gold dress which reveals her right nipple as well as black underwear.
