We’re used to seeing Eddie Murphy in a movie every year or so. And whether those movies are fan favorites or flops, I personally expect for Murphy to somehow be represented at the box office. But that hasn’t been the case this year. And apparently, this is the reason why. The veteran actor and comedian has been working on an upcoming album. And today, there’s a little preview of what me might expect from it.
A reggae song featuring Snoop Lion called “Red Light.”
I was hesitant to even press play on this one because a collaboration between Eddie and Snoop just sounds…odd. But after listening to it twice, I can say it’s not terrible. I’ve heard far worse. Eddie Murphy, in his signature high whiny voice, attempts to pull of Bob Marley’s cadence. The track sounds like any other slowed down reggae track. Some have said it puts them in the mood of Marley’s “Jammin.” I don’t know if I’d go that far but there are commonalities.
Take a listen to the song below and let us know what you think.
