Eddie Murphy Releases New Song
Eddie Murphy is on Twitter and releases new music at the same damn time!
Via LA Times reports:
“Red Light” is the first cut from an upcoming album to be titled “9,” says Murphy’s Twitter bio. And guess what? It’s not half-bad.
Over a chewy (if utterly familiar-sounding) groove, Murphy laments the state of the world like many a reggae singer before him, admitting: “My high anxiety is getting higher / Feels like I’m gonna blow” before calling attention to a trigger-fingered military and a broken economy.
Later, there’s an assured (if even more utterly familiar-sounding) guest verse from Snoop Dogg, who released his own reggae album earlier this year under the name Snoop Lion.
“Red Light” isn’t Murphy’s first foray into music. In the mid 1980s and early ’90 he released a string of albums and singles, including the hit “Party All the Time,” which Rick James co-wrote and produced and which hit No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
