The ‘Luther’ actor turns MC…
Wiley, Stefflon Don, and Sean Paul have teamed up with Idris Elba on a new track called ‘Boasty’ – stream it below.
The Luther actor and DJ, who has recently been confirmed to perform at Coachella 2019, turns his hand to MCing with his own verse on the tropical new cut.
‘Boasty’ – co-produced by Toddla T and Rotterdam’s Mucky – hears Jamaican dancehall legend Paul collaborate once again with Stefflon Don. The pair previously worked together on the recently released ‘Shot & Wine’ and 2018’s ‘Jet Plane Trip’.
Paul also remixed Stefflon Don’s tune ‘Hurtin’ Me’ in January 2018.
Confirming his DJ appearance at Coachella earlier this month, Elba tweeted: “See you in the desert”. He’s joined on the bill by headliners Ariana Grande, Tame Impala, and Childish Gambino.
Meanwhile, Elba said recently that the latest series of Luther could set up a movie adaptation of the BBC drama.
“I don’t think we’re going to do too many TV versions of it – the next step is to make a film,” he told Digital Spy. “This season has the film very much in its sights. If there is a film, then it will be somehow connected to this season.”
The actor also referenced 1996’s Se7en and 2001’s Along Came a Spider as inspiration for the movie. “Luther has all the ingredients to echo those classic films of the ’90s,” he said.
“Essentially we want to take it to a much bigger audience, and scale.”
In other news, Stefflon Don recently posted a video on Instagram in which she appeared to break up with a peacock called Sterling.
