Idris Elba was taking requests at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding reception! The actor, who DJed the couple's 2018 event, spilled the beans about one of the songs the Duchess of Sussex asked to be played on her big day.

Elba revealed on BBC's 1Xtra Rap Show that Dr. Dre's 1999 hit song, "Still D.R.E.," was "Meghan's choice," and all of the guests "went off" when it was played.

"I played some Dr. Dre," he shared.

"Really? Was it censored, or were all the words in there?" Kimmel asked.

"Full fat!" Elba teased.
