Originally entitled Samoan Beauty, Grey released the song in 1980 on his We Are Samoa album with his group Ava. It was produced by Frank Day and the late Tom Moffatt - Hawai'i's legendary concert promoter and DJ, who loved Grey's music and who flew Grey and his band from Samoa to Hawai'i twice to record two albums.
Greyson produced his version of Island Beauty with Shawn Ishimoto, Marc Solomon and Soli Satele. Musicians on the single were: Francois Deann II (keyboards); Shawn Ishimoto (drums and guitar); and Brandon Shaw (bass). Soli Satele and Greyson sang background vocals. The single was engineered, mixed and mastered by Marc Solomon. It is available on all digital outlets.
The lyric video of Island Beauty was released simultaneously with the single, and features Soli Satele in addition to Greyson.
