Not only is Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving making his acting debut with the release of the feature film, Uncle Drew, later this month. He is also showcasing another talent off the court: R&B singer.
Irving has a New Jack Swing-inspired single on the film’s soundtrack titled “Ridiculous.” On it, the NBA Star sings about how “ridiculous” a night with his crew, some girls and a live party can get. The nearly three-minute-long track features LunchMoney Lewis and was released on June 14.
