We always get pumped to hear what Idris Elba is working on, musically. He’s revered for his acting capabilities, of course, but he achieved legendary status (in our eyes at least) once he started releasing house music and playing shows. On Wednesday, Elba shared a brand new remix of a grandson and Jessie Reyez track, “Rain,” which originally was included in the soundtrack of The Suicide Squad.
What was once a modern pop banger has been flipped by Big Dris into a fiery tech house groover. Not only does Elba give the original a complete makeover, but he also delivers an entire verse. I don’t care who you are, it’s very rare that a remix artist also delivers new vocals for the track in addition to transforming the production. But that’s just the kind of guy Idris Elba is.
You can stream the new remix from Idris Elba below. Enjoy!
