In need of no introduction, Idris Elba juggles a blossoming music career with his status as one
of the most sought-after actors on the planet. As one of the UK’s best-loved Polymaths, he makes a welcome return to the music world with somewhat of a surprise single before the summer is out.
His new single ‘Biggest’ sees the producer/DJ deliver a sweaty Moombahton-inspired club track to get waistlines whining across the world – packed full of heavy synths, filthy basslines and his vocal performance with a uniquely London swagger.
This follows his previous singles, the tech-house-flavoured ‘Body Shots’ and the energetic Afro-pop jam ‘Ashobi’ which saw him collaborate with Sierra Leone’s biggest contemporary artist Drizilik. This recent flurry of music releases showcases Elba’s ability to cross genres in his unique way, always with a focus on the dancefloor whilst embracing his West African roots.
His other biggest tracks include ‘Girl With The Bat’, ‘Apple Crumble’ and the global smash ‘Boasty’. Also recently, Idris teamed up with the likes of Davido, Koffee, Lil Tjay and The Fanatix on monster collab ‘Vroom’, while his 7Wallace imprint continues to provide a platform for established talent, having released music from Che Lingo, Q-Tip, Cypress Hill, Little Simz, Toddla T and Chip.
With ‘Biggest’ Idris Elba continues to demonstrate a vastly impressive versatility and musical range.
