Eddie Murphy does collab with Beenie Man
Back in May, comedian/actor/singer Eddie Murphy revealed to Rolling Stones Magazine that a collaboration between himself and the King of the Dancehall, Beenie Man was in the works. Fast-track a few weeks and the singer has made good on his promise of a new single.
With just over three weeks passing since the release of the music video for his hit single Oh Jah Jah, Murphy is back on the reggae trails, but this time the track offers a more upbeat tune to its predecessor and no doubt the musical stylings of ‘the doctor’ himself has something to do with that.
The new single titled Wonna Deez Nites is set for release on June 30, 2015 on VPAL Music (VP Records’ subsidiary label and distribution arm) and is available for pre-order.
This new collaboration is the first time in more than two decades since Murphy has worked with another Jamaican artist musically. In 1993, he teamed up with legendary Jamaican dancehall artist Shabba Ranks on his song I Was A King.
Wonna Deez Nites is Murphy’s second reggae track for the year and follows his January chart-topper Oh Jah Jah, also released by VPAL Music. Oh Jah Jah enjoyed huge success internationally and peaked at number 1 on iTunes Reggae Single Chart and debuted in the Top 5 on the US Billboard Reggae Digital Song Chart.
Although Wonna Deez Nites has not yet been officially released, it has been making the rounds on YouTube, as several persons have already posted the track to the popular video hosting site.
The single will be available for digital purchase starting with tomorrow on Amazon and June 30 on iTunes via Panda Bear Productions and VPAL Music.
