A couple of years back, I reviewed an Idris Elba thriller, a high-toned B-movie called “The Take.”
One thing that surprised me was him singing the song that runs under the closing credits. Is there nothing Idris can’t do? I marveled over that.
And here it is, years later, and every day’s web traffic report for Movie Nation shows me all these people, finding that review because people watching “The Take” are wondering, “Is that Idris crooning over the credits?”
Yes, it is. He sings.
There are also plenty of examples of chat show hosts getting him to “Give us a song.” And he fancies himself somebody who could draw a paying audience doing it. More proof? This music video.
