For many artists, switching their creative mediums can prove to be a task when it comes to public recognition. Yet, at the risk of being pigeon-holed into his acting, Idris Elba has managed to successfully traipse the boundaries with his music career.
Coming a long way from a surprising set at 2019’s Coachella outing, DJ Big Driis has been hard at work at cultivating a catalog with an envy-worthy list of collaborators.
Most recently, in a remote talk with CapitalFM in the UK, Elba revealed that the list continues to grow as he has a new work with Davido and Megan Thee Stallion tucked away. Understandably, the pandemic has put a hold on his live appearances, but he’s been hard at work in quarantine.
“I’ve got a tune with Franky Wah coming. I think that’s going to be good,” he revealed, before adding, “I’ve got a sneaky tune with Meg Thee Stallion and Davido. coming. Shout out to the fanatics. It’s one of those junctions where I feel like life’s too short. You just got to do what you want to do.”
In the same interview, he also revealed an unlikely dream collaboration with his Cats costar Taylor Swift.
“I’ve known Taylor a few years. People see the album sales, the awards. What they don’t see is the hard work,” he began. “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.”
