What do you do you when you’ve been nominated for 2 Emmys, had a summer blockbuster movie (Thor), and a hit TV series (“LUTHER”) ? If you’re Idris Elba, you head down to the beaches of San Juan, Puerto Rico and shoot a music video, and indulge in some some very seductive body painting. Produced by music wunderkind 9th Wonder, “Private Garden” is a jazzy blend of hip-hop, soul, and reggae, from his 2010 EP ” High Class Problems Vol. 1.” Shout out to video director Crystle “Clear” Roberson for the stunning visuals!
Watch video below:
Some 9th Wonder fans may recognize the beat from his “Ether” Remix on the 2003 God’s Stepson mixtape.
