Dance FM favourite Idris Elba is back in the news with a massive hint that he might be working with Taylor Swift on a future collab (woah!). The actor, producer and DJ is already starring with the award-winning singer for the movie adaptation of “Cats” (which he hinted when he was over at our studio).

Idris Elba has already been causing quite a stir this year. First was a cheeky Instagram selfie captioned “Awks…”, with current James Bond star David Craig at the recent Golden Globes awards and the second was when his name popped up on the Coachella lineup. On a recent red carpet interview, he said “Coachella is, like, a lifetime dream for any DJ. I’m so excited! I can’t wait. I can’t wait”. We can’t wait either.

Despite leveling up his music career, he did tell us that “acting is my biggest form of expression”. This year, Elba will be making his Netflix debut in a comedy series “Turn Up Charlie”, where he plays the role of a struggling DJ. And he will returning back to his hit detective series, “Luther”!


We cannot wait to catch all these on-screen and on-deck performances! And of course, the Elba-Swift collaboration *fingers-crossed*! In the meantime, we’re replaying his exclusive live DJ set for Dance FM.
