Views From The Strip: Drake Hints At Securing Las Vegas Residency
It looks like Drake may be on his way to Nevada, as he's reportedly hinted at securing a residency at the XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas.
According to a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Toronto musician hinted after a 30-minute performance last week at XS (Jan. 10) that he may be back for an extended period of time.
"Vegas! When I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena or some [stuff]," he told the crowd of nearly 5,000. "But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me." According to the publication, Drake has reportedly "inked a 12-show deal over the next two years."
"Wynn has not announced its formal 2019 residency roster (the resort did issue a full 2018 list in the first week of last January), but this is the same club that has paid exorbitant fees for The Chainsmokers, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Marshmello and David Guetta, among others," they report.
Drake appears to have many reasons to celebrate this year. His latest album Scorpion is up for several awards at the upcoming Grammys, including "Best Rap Song" for "God's Plan," and Album Of The Year for the lengthy project.
