He has a new reggae-influenced single out called “Redlight,” which features Snoop Lion (a.ka. Snoop Dogg), and a low-budget music video featuring the Norbit star and the rapper which has debuted on YouTube.
While Murphy’s career in music initially started with a bang, it quickly petered out. His last album, Love’s Alright, was released 20 years ago and featured the unintentional camp classic “Whatsupwitu,” a duet with Michael Jackson.
Despite a critically-acclaimed, popular performance in the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, in which Murphy sang his own vocals, few of his fans expected him to make a foray into music.
