The reggae song called 'Red Light' will be featured in the 'Dreamgirls' actor's upcoming new album, '9'.
In an unexpected pairing, Eddie Murphy has collaborated with Snoop Dogg for a new single called "Red Light". Murphy shared a link to the reggae song in his first-ever Twitter post. In another post, he said that the single is the first cut of his newly-announced album entitled "9".
In the reggae song, Murphy is featured singing and playing guitar. "Broken economy, the streets are dire," the "Dreamgirls" actor sings the catchy track. "Even more than before, I need some betterness to take me higher. Feels like I'm gonna blow."
Dogg, who released his own reggae album under the name Snoop Lion earlier this year, contributes a few lines toward the end of the song too. The official music video for the single will debut on September 9.
Murphy is not a new face in the music industry. The actor released several albums and singles in the mid '80s and early '90s. His works include hit "Party All the Time", which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 100.
