Jazmin Grace Grimaldi is making sweet music with her rocker boyfriend. On Monday, December 16, Grace Kelly ’s granddaughter released a new duet with her longtime beau Ian Mellencamp titled Thankful. In the holiday song, Jazmin and Ian profess their gratitude for each other’s love. “I’m thankful, so thankful for your love/ I’m thankful, so thankful for your love,” the couple croons in unison. “There’s nothing else I need.” The artwork for the duet features a black and white photo of Jazmin and Ian cuddling close together wearing turtlenecks. Prince Albert of Monaco’s daughter is pictured wearing a checkered blazer, while her boyfriend sports a wide brim hat.
Alongside the image, the 27-year-old singer wrote, “Who is Thankful this holiday season? @ianmellencamp and I have released our first ever HOLIDAY song today! Available on all music platforms! Check it out🌲🌟😘! Tag someone you are #THANKFUL for!” Ian, who is the nephew of musician John Mellencamp, also shared the photo writing: “SURPRISE! New Song Drop TODAY from @jazmingrimaldi and yours truly.”
Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella ’s older sister released her first single Fearless this year . “The song was inspired and is dedicated to the people of FIJI specifically Naidi village where the last project was completed a year ago,” she said of the song on social media. “The acoustic version of #Fearless is dedicated and inspired by the people of Fiji and those affected by natural disasters due to #climatechange.”
Jazmin has spoken in the past about her passion for singing and acting, which connects her to her late paternal grandmother, Princess Grace. "One of my first and fondest memories involving my grandmother was watching High Society," she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2015. "It was the first time I realized we had a connection. I'm passionate about acting, singing, and dancing," adding, "I saw that in her in this movie. It was a real goose-bumps moment for me."
