Starring in the hit TV series Luther, summer blockbuster Thor and his recently unveiled campaign for Smartwater, it’s safe to say that the year 2011 for “Big Driis the Londoner” has been an extraordinary one. His latest video for “Private Garden,” adds a new dimension to Elba’s inspiring career and gives Elba fans a whole context to swoon over the sexy British brotha.
A seductive R&B/Neo Soul styled track from his 2010 EP “High Class Problems Vol. 1,” the video was shot along the enchanted beaches of San Juan, PR. Idris puts his unique blend of sophisticated sensuality to music as he pleads (as if he even needs to try) for his lady to let him into her backyard, so to speak.
It’s doubtful Elba needs a warning to avoid quitting his day job, nor may it be necessary to discourage projects such as these in the future. Idris Elba is a rare breed rising to the top of his game – whose fans enjoy being along for the ride, for better, or otherwise.
