Having already channeled the Rat Pack in his VMA promo clip, Drake repped for another group while rehearsing for this weekend’s ceremony. Dressed down in a TLC Fanmail T-shirt and baggy black pants, Drizzy was joined by Swizz Beatz for a live rendition of “Fancy,” with women poised in white chairs behind the performers. Though she isn’t pictured, Mary J. Blige is slated to take part in the festivities.
“Drake’s VMA performance will be a very stylish, very slick, and of course, very smooth—beginning of the end of his very big, super-smooth year,” reveals MTV Buzzworthy, who was inside L.A.’s Nokia Theatre for rehearsals.
Get a taste of the Rat Pack-inspired set and tune in Sunday to see the trio make history live.
