Drake Channels Frank Sinatra For VMA Promo
Video: Drake's VMAs promo
The Lil Wayne protégé, who is set to perform at the Sept. 12 ceremony, is looking dapper for the new "Road to the VMAs promo." Decked in a fitted suit straight out of the Rat Pack era, the rapper bides his time in a vintage backstage set-up while a 1940's-dressed crowd anxiously waits for him to take the stage.
The intro to "Over" that loops in and out of the promo is the only thing relatively modern, but even that gets a club-cabana make-over with a full string section and horns as Drake shuffles down the lighted stairs to the microphone. Fedora angled down and swagger face on, Drizzy is setting anticipation on high for his first VMA performance.
