You know I rock out to "Party All The Time" by Eddie Murphy. I guess the comedian/actor/musician's latest venture in music is of the reggae variety. His latest single, "Oh Jah Jah" will be coming out January 27th, 2015, via VPAL Music.
Apparently this is not the first time Murphy dipped in the reggae genre, having collaborated with Snoop Lion (Snoop Dogg) on his song "Red Light".
Rolling Stone recently chatted with Eddie Murphy and gets the exclusive scoop about the new single.
Excerpt from rollingstone.com.
That's a misconception. I stopped putting music out 20 years ago. I've never stopped making music. I've always had a facility for recording at the house. I've stayed in the studio for years and years. Twenty years ago there was a bunch of mother****** just putting records out that was actors. I didn't want to be one of these motherf****** dropping tracks on some ego shit, trying to be the actor-singer. It always looks weird when you see the actor singing in the video. You're always gonna be like, "What the fuck is this?" I didn't want to be part of it. I'm not trying to get no paper, or get more famous off of this. I just do it, and I love doing it.
