Island Life was Grace Jones' 1985 compilation album, featuring songs from her Island Records albums Portfolio, Fame, Warm Leatherette, Nightclubbing, Living My Life, and Slave to the Rhythm. No tracks from Muse were included. The album was a huge success in the UK (reaching number #4 on the UK Album Chart in December, 1985), with "Pull Up to the Bumper" (#12 in the UK Singles Chart) and "Love Is the Drug" (#35) re-entering the charts a second time.
