Drake has revealed that he attempted to channel Frank Sinatra for the MTV Video Music Awards promo.

The hip hop star, who is nominated for Best Male Video and Best Hip Hop Video, also admitted that his acting skills come in handy for music productions such as promos and videos, reports Rap-Up.

The 23-year-old said: "I get to channel my inner Sinatra. In the acting world, you got to have reference points. I like to get into characters. There’s a ’50s theme. They got it right, though. They got the set and the wardrobe. I feel like I’m here."

Drake recently insisted that it would be "the illest moment" if Lil Wayne could attend the 2010 MTV Awards.

The ceremony will air on September 12 at 9 pm on MTV.
