First Listen: Eddie Murphy gets serious on "Promise (You Won't Break My Heart"

     

Eddie Murphy is best known for his comedy and his acting chops, but music fans will remember his brief foray into music nearly 30 years ago with "Party All The Time," with the help of Rick James.

Well, Eddie is planning a return to music next year with the album 9, and he's just leaked a new single from the album, a soft ballad called "Promise (You Won't Break My Heart." We're hearing mixed reactions from music fans. Some find it a nice, earnest love song while others think is a boring snoozer. What do you think?
