The youngsters of Twitter just discovered Eddie Murphy had a recording career and they’ve officially lost their minds.
Murphy’s rediscovered track from 1985, called “Party All The Time”, is a shock to young fans who mostly know him for his comedy career.
Not only did Twitter find the tune, but they found the music video too, and it’s just as good.
“I think Eddie Murphy is trending because the young people found Party all the Time’,” one Twitter user wrote. “It’s lit.”

But as some others pointed out, “Party All The Time” isn’t Murphy’s only step into the music industry. In fact, the “Saturday Night Live” alum showed his singing chops in 2006’s “Dreamgirls”.

Ok, you got me today, young people. I didn’t know the name of Batman actor. Or Spider-Man. Or Pennywise. Or Winter Soldier. But YOU didn’t know Eddie Murphy had a hit song called Party All The Time, so you can kick rocks and get the hell off my lawn.
