Could Drake be the next star to land a Las Vegas residency?
Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCDrake may be the latest star heading to Las Vegas for a lucrative residency.
Thursday night, rumors began to swirl of a possible Sin City run after Drizzy performed at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub in Vegas and teased that the set wouldn’t be the last they’d see of him.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the rapper told the crowd “Vegas, when I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena…but I’ll be back here at XS all year.”
He added, “You’ll have a lot of chances to see me.”
The OVO head honcho further added to the speculation by sharing a cryptic Instagram post on Friday. Alongside a photo of himself performing onstage at XS, Drake captioned the snapshot “New home.”
Sources tell the paper that the Scorpion rapper has agreed to perform over 12 shows at the ritzy nightclub over the span of the next two years. Drake reportedly scored two million dollars for his performance last week, and is expected to rake in nearly $25M by the completion of his contract.
If Drizzy were to actually take on a Las Vegas residency, he would join the likes of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, The Backstreet Boys and Jennifer Lopez, who’ve all cashed hefty checks for their past and present stints in Sin City.
