Eddie Murphy is the self-titled debut solo album by Eddie Murphy. It was released in late 1982, on Columbia Records. It was certified as a Gold record and received a Grammy award nomination. The album drew ire from the gay community, Asian-American groups and Women's groups for some of the humor.
In addition to the comedy tracks, this album was sprinkled with several actual musical numbers, including "Boogie in Your Butt," which became a minor hit on the R&B charts.
