Listen to Idris Elba’s remix of grandson & Jessie Reyez’s “Rain”

Fueled by Ramen

Idris Elba may not be a fan of 40-degree days, but, apparently, he doesn’t mind the rain sometimes.

The English actor, who’s also a musician and DJ, has released a remix of grandson‘s single “Rain” with Jessie Reyez, which was recorded for the new movie The Suicide Squad. Elba, of course, stars in the DC Comics film as Bloodsport.

“We shot a sequence in the rain and I remember it feeling like a music video at the time,” Elba recalls. “In my head, I thought how sick it would be to write a song about the rain sequence. When I heard grandson and Jessie’s song I was so happy to get a chance to remix it and contribute it to the universe.”

Adds grandson, “What can you say when a legend agrees to work with you? It was a natural opportunity that came up through The Suicide Squad soundtrack, and I’m beyond grateful Idris, a multifaceted artist I’ve been a fan of since I was a kid, agreed to add his touch of London house music to our song ‘Rain.'”

You can listen to the remix now via digital outlets.
