Nightclubbing is the fifth studio album by Jamaican singer Grace Jones, released on May 11, 1981 by Island Records. The album includes reggae-oriented covers of the songs by Flash and the Pan, Bill Withers, Iggy Pop, and Ástor Piazzolla, as well as several new tracks, three of which were co-written by Jones. The album was Jones' second album to use a reggae, electronica and R&B sound. The 2-Disc Deluxe Remastered Version states that the writer(s) of "If You Wanna Be My Lover" is unknown.

Nightclubbing is the fifth studio album by Jamaican singer Grace Jones, released on 11 May 1981 by Island Records. Recorded at Compass Point Studios with producers Alex Sadkin and Island Records' president Chris Blackwell, as well as a team of session musicians rooted by rhythm section Sly & Robbie, the album marked her second foray into a reggae-influenced new wave style. Primarily a reggae album, Nightclubbing draws on a variety of genres, including new wave, R&B, art pop, dub, synthpop and funk, making it a departure from her previous disco work.

Nightclubbing is the fifth studio album by Grace Jones, released in 1981. It is the second of three post-disco albums that Jones made at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas and became Jones' commercial breakthrough and also formed the basis of her groundbreaking concept tour A One Man Show. It claimed the number one slot on NME Album of the Year. The lead-off single for the album was "Demolition Man" written by Sting for Jones and also included on The Police's album Ghost in the Machine later in the year.

But of course, Grace Jones is the star here. Five of the original album’s nine songs are covers, though rather than fealty to the source material, Jones sounds as if she’s shredding the songbook with her bare teeth. She treats each cover not as a singer tackling a song, but as an actor inhabiting the skin of a role. She sneers the Police ’s Demolition Man as if she's a villainess leveling a hospital, inverting the gender and notions of sexual dominance in her lascivious take on Bill Withers’ Use Me. Dubbing out the zombiefied pacing of Nightclubbing, Jones intones Iggy Pop ’s lines.

Nightclubbing is definitely Grace's best studio album. There are so many classic tracks here to tickle your ears. Pull Up To The Bumper trucks along with car horns and a scratchy hook. Feel Up, consisting of upbeat African rhythms is one of the best here. Walking In The Rain has Grace speaking in deep intonation "Feeling like a woman, looking like a ma. And then there's the showstopper Nightclubbing. The cover is definitely very strong. There is no middle ground. I never really listened to Grace Jones back when she was popular.

The sound blended genres of punk, raggae, and new wave, coming together as thick, murky concoction that paved the way for Nightclubbing - an album that took those newly-introduced ideas a step further to bring about what was undoubtedly her finest hour. The album strikes even prior to its music - its iconic cover art, a painted photograph by Jones' longtime collaborator (and-then boyfriend) Jean-Paul Goude portrays her in a fierce, stark, almost impossibly sharp smolder
