P.M. Dawn was contacted personally by Eddie Murphy, who asked the Duo to come up with a song for the movie “Boomerang” he was filming. The Pair immediately got to work and contributed the single “I’d Die Without You” to the 1992 Eddie Murphy comedy Movie Boomerang and its soundtrack. ETERNAL goes on to say: “Eddie saw something in us that we didn’t see in ourselves. You have to understand before meeting Eddie Murphy we were a Rap group who could sing. After the Movie and the Soundtrack was released, the media started calling us Song Writers, Producers, and Pop stars. I have no doubts, If It weren’t for Eddie Murphy, we wouldn’t have worked with Legendary Artists such as the Bee Gees, Elton John, Boy George, Cindy Lauper & Philip Baily of Earth Wind And Fire and later on The Backstreet Boys & Mandy Moore. Eddie opened up the whole world to us. We were just two kids from Jersey City, and the next thing I knew, we were Singing “I’d Die Without You” At the Wedding of Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame’s own Rev Run of RUN DMC. Paula Abdul took me to my first Prince Concert, That’s Crazy, Who Gets to do that in a lifetime. For Eddie Murphy to take It upon himself to hand deliver our song to L.A Reid & Babyface for the Boomerang Soundtrack was a Dream. Eddie Wherever you are at In the World, we owe you one man, [Big time.]
