Big screen actor Patrick Swayze has his eyes set on rap in a bid to emulate the success of his Dirty Dancing record nearly 20 years ago.
She's like the wind was a massive hit for the 53-year-old star, who played dance teacher Johnny Castle in the film. But now he's eager to branch out into other musical genres.
"She's Like The Wind is in the Hall Of Fame with The Beatles' Yesterday as one of the most air-played songs in history. But my style now is closer to Sting or Peter Gabriel or Coldplay," he was quoted in a recent interview, as saying.
"I'm also experimenting with using rap rhythms as an emotional undercurrent for ballads," he added.
