Idris Elba took on a singing challenge on US talk show The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and totally nailed it

How has your day been? With this video of Idris Elba turning his sexy singing voice to Endless Love it's about to get better...

Idris took up the Box of Microphones challenge on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where the two added their vocals to today’s top hits – with some seriously distorted microphones.

Idris started with a chipmunk-ified rap of Desiigner’s song Panda (complete with some excellent jumping) before Jimmy did a deep-voiced rendition of Drake’s One Dance.

But it was when their auto-tuned dulcet tones came together for Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’ sEndless Love that a new genre-defying classic was born.

Watch the result below:

If that wasn’t enough Idris for your day, he also danced. You’re welcome.

This didn't really help during the heatwave.
