Idris Elba and James Corden Make Surprise Cameo on Taylor Swift's New Album LOVER

Fellow CATS co-stars Idris Elba and James Corden make a surprise appearance on Taylor Swift's newest album Lover!

The eleventh song on the album, "London Boy," opens with a spoken clip, in which an unidentified person says: "We can go driving on my scooter... you know, just round London."

Swift's fanbase has identified THE VOICE Idris Elba, and the clip comes from when Elba was a guest on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in March 2017. If you really listen to the clip, you can also hear Corden saying, "Oh I'd..." before he's cut off by Swift's laugh.

In the interview in 2017 where the clip was taken from, Elba was discussing his plans for an upcoming date that he'd auctioned off for the charity W.E. Can Lead, which supports schoolgirls in Sierra Leone and across West Africa. He suggested a trip on his scooter around London, and Corden replied, "Oh I'd love a ride on your scooter."
