Eddie Murphy is back! And this time he’s behind a mic.
Murphy released new song and video called “Red Light” earlier today. The track, featuring Snoop Lion, is the first from Murphy since the 1980’s.
“All I’ve been doing is making music,” said Eddie Murphy. “I haven’t been working on films, haven’t been developing movies, or any of that shit.”
Murphy’s up-coming reggae record, titled 9, is set to release early next year.
This comes 5 days after Murphy took to Twitter to announce his return to music.
