Rickie Lee Jones released her self-titled debut album in March 1979 and it became a hit, initialised by the success of the jazz-flavored single "Chuck E.'s In Love", which hit No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and featured an accompanying music video. The album, which included guest appearances by Dr. John, Randy Newman, and Michael McDonald, went to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and produced another Top 40 hit with "Young Blood" (No. 40) in late 1979. Her appearance – as an unknown (one month after her debut record had been released) – on Saturday Night Live on April 7, 1979, sparked an overnight sensation. Jones secured four nominations at the 22nd Annual Grammy Awards; Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female for "Chuck E.'s in Love", Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female for "Last Chance Texaco", as well as Best New Artist, which she won.
