The King of Comedy meets the King of Dancehall? Yes, you read that correct. Eddie Murphyâ€˜s latest foray into reggae is a collaboration with Beenie Man, entitled â€œWonna Deez Nights.â€ Where Eddieâ€™s â€œRed Lightâ€ and â€œOh Jah Jahâ€ were ruminative, roots-y tunes colored by social commentary, this one has a lighter, beach-party reggae kinda feel. Donâ€™t let the cheesy, 90s-style misspelled title and clichÃ©d intro lead you to dismiss it entirely, though. Beenie brings an energy to this one, and by the end of the song it turns into something a little harder and a little more dancehall, airhorns and all. And tell us that breakdown at 3:20 doesnâ€™t have â€œsurprise performance at Reggae Sumfestâ€ written all over it.
