ABC/ Lorenzo BevilaquaIdris Elba is opening up about one of his biggest gig as a DJ yet: performing at the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in May 2018.
In an interview with BBC Radio, Elba revealed some of the details of the prestigious booking.
“Meghan sent me a playlist,” Elba said, adding, “There was some West Coast on it. That’s all I’m sayin’.”
Unfortunately, he did not specify if by “West Coast,” he meant Tupac, Dr. Dre and Snoop.
“Respectfully, I haven’t been really going on about it,” Elba said. “I’m not gonna put their business out there.”
However, Elba did say he played Whitney Houston‘s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” at their wedding.
“A lot of tunes went off,” he said of the reactions during the ceremony and reception.
Elba also talked about his own wedding to Sabrina Dhowre earlier this year in Morocco.
“It was one of the most beautiful three days ever…we had the most amazing time,” he recalled.
Also during the interview, the actor spoke about how his dad’s death five years ago really inspired him to go out there and try his hand at anything, from music to art to acting.
“There’s nothing promised,” he said of losing his father months after his lung cancer diagnosis. “At the end of the day, if there’s something that you want to do…go out and play. You might not be the best at it. It’s the fact that you lived an ambition.”
