Hear Eddie Murphy’s Reggae Song ‘Red Light’ With Snoop Lion


Eddie Murphy‘s music career seemed dead in the water after his 1993 album, ‘Love’s Alright,’ flopped on the charts, but the comedian is back today with a new single, ‘Red Light.’

Murphy’s first single in some 20 years finds him going full-on reggae with a little help from Snoop Lion, aka the peace-loving alter ego of Snoop Dogg. Their collaboration doesn’t make for anything particularly groundbreaking or amazing, but that doesn’t mean ‘Red Light’ is unlistenable by any means. It’s just your standard mellowed-out reggae song, nothing more, nothing less.

What’s intriguing about this track, however, is that it’s at least the second time the actor-turned-singer embraced the music of Jamaica. On his aforementioned ’93 album ‘Love’s Alright,’ Murphy teamed up with dancehall legend Shabba Ranks for the revolutionary-minded ‘I Was a King.’

You can listen to ‘Red Light’ below.
