Idris Elba isn’t James Bond yet, but he’s linking up with a former Bond theme singer. Madonna announced Monday that Elba, a DJ, producer, and rapper will open her Rebel Heart Tour stop in Berlin on Tuesday.

Beyond acting in BBC series Luther and Netflix film Beasts of No Nation, Elba has a strong music resume. He occasionally dabbles in bars, but the Emmy nominee has played in Ibiza and at Glastonbury.

The pop legend has cycled through opening acts on the international tour supporting her May record. In North America, comedian Amy Schumer, DJs Diplo, and Lunice were among the opening acts. Rejjie Snow and Mary Mac were the previous openers on the first two European stops.

No word yet if Elba will re-create actress Jessica Chastain’s recent stunt.
