Idris Elba has collaborated with Megan Thee Stallion.
The 48-year-old actor, DJ and rapper has let slip that he’s teamed up with Nigerian-American Davido as well as the American rapping sensation Megan Thee Stallion on an upcoming “banger”.
Speaking to MistaJam on CapitalFM‘s ‘The All-New Capital Weekender’ show, he spilled: “I’m doing more music, Jam you know what it’s like, I’m trying to stay with it when we’re not gigging now. So I’ve got some really cool music coming, been working with Franky Wah on a tune I’m looking forward to droppin’. 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.”
Working with the ‘Assuarance’ hitmaker seems to have been a long time coming. As reported by The Sauce in 2019, Davido performed at Elba’s wedding to his wife Sabrina Dhowre in Morocco. According to the report, Davido’s performance was arranged by Elba to surprise his wife, Sabrina who loves the songs of the Nigerian superstar.
The ‘Luther’ star has previously teamed up with the likes of grime star Wiley, Sean Paul and MC Kah-Lo on tracks.
Meanwhile, Idris previously revealed he would love to perform with pop megastar Taylor Swift.
The ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’ actor starred alongside the ‘Love Story’ hitmaker in 2019’s ‘Cats’ and later said he’d love to join the Grammy-winner on stage in the future.
Tom Hooper’s musical adaptation of ‘Cats’ also starred the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Jason Derulo and Rebel Wilson – and Idris admitted he relished the experience of working with the A-list cast.
