The song became very popular in the USA in 1950 with no less than seven different versions reaching the Billboard charts. A cover version in 1977 by Jamaican singer Grace Jones was also a successful international hit. “La Vie en rose” has been covered by several artists over the years, including a 1950 version by Louis Armstrong.
