The 'Luther' actor has charted on The Official Big Top 40 after teaming up with Wiley, Sean Paul and Stefflon Don.
Idris Elba features on the new song 'Boasty', which entered the UK's biggest chart show this week at Number 36.
The actor was on the phone to The Official Big Top 40 from New York as Will Manning revealed the news.
It comes just a few hours after Idris hosted the legendary, long-running American TV show Saturday Night Live.
'Boasty' is a collaboration between actor and DJ Idris and rappers Wiley, Sean Paul and Stefflon Don.
Idris had a little bit of love advice for Will and put to bed rumours that he's in line to be the next James Bond.
This week's Number 1 went to Pink, with her new single 'Walk Me Home' topping the chart for a third week in-a-row.
Two songs from The Prodigy featured in the chart this week, following the tragic death of the group's lead singer Keith Flint: 'Firestarter' was at Number 7 and 'Breathe' at Number 31.
Troye Sivan also joined Will on the show and there were also New Entries from the likes of Louis Tomlinson and Ava Max.
