Idris Elba is covering all the bases today.
There's a new Taylor Swift album in town, and it's Notting Hill Carnival weekend, too.
So, he knows he got to turn up. Ever the pro, Idris Elba has somehow nailed both, and there's still the weekend to spare.
First up: Idris Elba makes a sweet appearance on Taylor Swift's new album, guesting on (appropriately enough) 'London Boy'.
Of course, she references Brixton, and he's an East boy, but we'll let that one slide.
Next up: Idris Elba supplies the intro for the 25th anniversary of 'Original Nuttah', one of UK bass culture's most iconic moments and an all-time carnival classic.
Re-issued just in time for the parade itself, it still bangs harder than the first time you ever heard it.
