Eddie Murphy debuted his new single ‘Red Light’ on Twitter.

Wait? Eddie Murphy is on Twitter?

Well, in anticipation of the release of his upcoming solo album “9” a Twitter account was created for the comedian/actor/musician.

In the one, and only, tweet made from the account, he gave us his new single ‘Red Light’ for all to hear.

According to the actor’s Soundcloud page, this new single will bring Eddie’s appreciation of the reggae music genre to life. Featured on the track is Snoop Lion, who recently made his transition to the reggae genre himself with the release of his album ‘Reincarnated’.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy will both sing and play guitar on the track.

This is certainly not the first time that Eddie Murphy has tried his hand in the music world.

Those of us who lived through the 80’s will certainly remember the release of Murphy’s single “Party All the Time” from the 1985. If you’d like to take a walk down memory lane, you can do so here.

In 1993, he released an album entitled ‘Love’s Alright’ which featured the legendary Michael Jackson on the song ‘Whatzupwitu’.

Based on the new single, do you think Eddie Murphy’s new album is going to be a hit? Well, what are you waiting for? Listen to it and let us know.

The official video for ‘Red Light’ will debut on September 9th on Vevo, and will be available for purchase on iTunes.
