Idris Elba Talks About The Songs He DJ’d At Meghan And Harry’s Wedding

First off, if you didn’t know hot hunky actor Idris Elba was a DJ in addition to his Hollywood movie career, now you now. With that out of the way, let’s talk about how he snagged himself a prime DJ gig on May 19, 2018.

As a friend of Prince Harry — the two met while working for a charity called The Prince’s Trust — Elba was asked to DJ his wedding reception.  “I was like, ‘Is this a joke? Are you joking?’” Elba told Ellen DeGeneres back in March. “And he’s like, ‘Serious.’”

So what did Harry and Meghan Markle dance to? “Meghan sent me a playlist with some bare tunes on it,” Elba said during a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra. And while he maintained tight-lipped about the playlist, he did reveal that “I Want to Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston was included.

“There was some West Coast on it. That’s all I’m saying.” US Magazine previously reported that Elba played “Never Too Much” by Luther Vandross during the reception, while Meghan danced with her girlfriends.

When asked by BBC Radio 1Xtra if he played any rap, like Snoop Dogg, Tupac or Dr. Dre, Elba laughed, “I’m not gonna put their business out like that, that’s not fair! Ask Meghan and Harry.”
