ACTOR Eddie Murphy is taking another crack at reggae, with the song “Oh Jah Jah” which is scheduled to be released January 27, by VPAL Classic, the digital arm of VP Records. Donovan Williams, VPAL’s manager, told the Jamaica Observer that Murphy produced the song which is describes as a “cultural track”. He said the actor’s “people reached out to us” to help market and promote the single, which is Murphy’s second reggae number in 18 months.

In the summer of 2013, he teamed with rapper Scoop Dogg on the song “Red Light”. In 1993, Murphy collaborated with Grammy-winning deejay Shabba Ranks for the single, “When I Was King”.

A video for that song was filmed in Portland.

Murphy, 53, was one of the hottest

names in entertainment during the 1980s.

He was the star attraction on Saturday Night

Live, before branching out into hit movies like

48 Hrs, Trading Places and Beverly Hills Cop.

That success continued in the 1990s, thanks

to movies like Coming to America and

Boomerang.
