Grace Jones' "Original Beast" Will Slay and Give You Life, All At The Same Time!

OMG, Grace Jones is a national treasure. No. Scrap that. She is a planetary treasure! Four decades in, still cutting edge and slaying everyone with her musical output! "They broke the mold when they made me", indeed.

Offering up her supernatural talents to the The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 OST, Ms. Jones  has delivered to us another stunner with the tribal/reggae-fused Original Beast. In fact, this track is so vibrant and crack-like that everything I've listened to, post hearing it, has sounded grey and desaturated...will I ever return to Oz again?! Glinda, where are yooooooooou!!?

Note:The video linked features the entire Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, so feel free to listen and discuss that too!
