Eddie Murphy may be best known for his comedic prowess and his roles in movies such as "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Coming to America," but the 52-year-old actor is showing off his vulnerable side in the new music video to his single, "Promise (You Won't Break My Heart)." Premiering exclusively on HuffPost Entertainment, the video is shot in black-and-white, focusing on Murphy as he plays acoustic guitar and croons about a broken heart.

"'Promise' encompasses themes that I think anyone who has ever been in a relationship can relate to, that little hint of fear that exists when you’re starting to fall in love," Murphy said in a statement to HuffPost. "It began with just a couple of guitar licks and evolved into this smooth slow jam."

Check out the the video to "Promise (You Won't Break My Heart)" below and keep an eye out for Murphy's upcoming studio album, "9," set to debut early next year.
