“Party All the Time” is a song by comedian and actor Eddie Murphy, written and produced by Rick James. It was the lead single from Murphy’s 1985 debut album How Could It Be.
The single was recorded at James’ home studio in Buffalo, New York. It reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, behind “Say You, Say Me” by Lionel Richie.
Rick James also provided vocals for the song.
The lyrics are a lament by the singer that despite the expensive, extravagant things he lavishes on his girlfriend,
she prefers to spend her time going out clubbing, dancing, and partying, as well as flirting and cheating with other men,
rather than being with him and remaining faithful to him.
