Idris Elba Returns with Energetic Music Video ‘Body Shots’

In need of no introduction, Idris Elba juggles a flourishing music career with his status as one of the most sought-after actors on the planet.

Riding the wave of a renewed musical vigor, he follows a string of exciting summer dancefloor releases with an official music video for his slamming house track ‘Body Shots’. The dance-based performance video injects the track with darkly lit club vibes, as Idris brings the party to your screens. Released earlier in the summer, the track boasts an old-skool inspired bass line, rasping swung hi-hats, eclectic synth stabs and a sultry vocal sample, which results in a thumping house track.

Speaking about the track, Idris explains: “Body Shots is a record I produced just in time for my summer sets, especially for Ibiza earlier in the year! The track is just pure vibes, we just shot a wicked video infused with celebration of lights and movement to display the real essence of the tune. The visual reminds me old school MTV vibes.”
