Eddie Murphy

Comedic genius and blockbuster movie star Eddie Murphy has expressed his passion for music over the years and continues his march into the reggae world. After partnering with Snoop on "Red Light" in 2013, the King of Comedy just released his latest offering called "Wonna Deez Nights" with Dancehall King Beenie Man.  

Putting the jokes in the background, Eddie has been serious about his musical creations over the years and previously flexed his vocal skills on R&B cuts like "Put Your Mouth on Me" and scored a #2 hit on Billboard in 1982 with the Rick James-produced "Party All the Time." As Eddie gets his Rude Boy on, check out a few more actors who showed that they could rock the mic and check out "Wonna Deez Nights" here. -Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
