Actor and DJ Idris Elba said this week that he’s been working on new music during the pandemic, including songs with Megan Thee Stallion and Davido. Appearing on CapitalFM’s The All-New Capital Weekender, the Cats star who spins as DJ Big Driis said he’s been trying to keep his skills sharp during a time when he can’t be in clubs working the decks.
“I’m trying to stay with it when we’re not gigging now,” said Elba. “So I’ve got some really cool music coming, been working with Franky Wah on a tune I’m looking forward to dropping. “’I’ve got a bit of a banger, I don’t want to say too much but me, Megan Thee Stallion and Davido that’s coming. Shout out to the fanatics.”
Elba, who released the freestyle song “Gospel 21” in January, also told the Weekender‘s host that he would love to collaborate with his old pal Taylor Swift if she’d have him. “I’ve known Taylor a few years. People see the album sales, the awards. What they don’t see is the hard work,” he said. “She is an incredibly hard-working person, she isn’t resting on her achievements. To perform live with her would be fun and hopefully we can make that happen.”
Elba also dropped the song “Courteney Cox” featuring Connor Price in January, with the former Friends star making a special appearance in the video.
