Comedy is Murphyâ€™s bread and butter, but his star power translated into popular music as well. His Rick James-assisted single â€œParty All The Time" (1985) reached as high as No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and another single, â€œPut Your Mouth On Me,â€ (1989) reached 47 on the Hot 100 (along with No. 2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart). While his full-length albums didnâ€™t fare as well, Murphy still made his mark musically. â€œParty All The Timeâ€ has been parodied by Weird Al Yankovic, covered by Aubrey Oâ€™Day (of Danity Kane fame), and still gets airplay in lists like VH1â€™s â€œ100 Greatest One Hit Wondersâ€ and AOL Radioâ€™s â€œ100 Worst Songs Ever.â€ Even still, he got to show his musical range more recently in 2006â€™s Dreamgirls as the boisterous James â€œThunderâ€ Early.
