What happens when you mix an Academy-Award nominated actor who obviously needs to catch up on a few utility bills with 17 bundles of premium Malaysian hair purchased from Aliexpress? A television project that promises to deliver delight to Project Chicks across the globe . . . and booming Instagram enterprise.

Actor and smoldering piece of sexual chocolate Idris Elba will join K. Michelle as she brings her latest album ‘Rebellious Soul’ to the small screen with the premiere of ‘K.Michelle: Rebellious Soul – The Musical’ airing August 19 on VH1.

Per our friends over at Rap-Up, the “Bring That Finger Hut Catalog In Here” singer plays a “stripper that falls in love with the man of her dreams only for heartbreak and drama to later ensue.”

Shit, that just sounds like NBA All-Star Weekend.

More details via press release:

The dark, cautionary tale is directed by Golden Globe Award-winning actor Idris Elba. Taking center stage in this ‘hip hopera,’ K.Michelle’s powerful ballads capture the lust, love, heartache and redemption of a fierce woman struggling to break the cycle of bad romance. What will be her fate when she catches her man in a lie and her past comes back to haunt her?
