Drake Signs $10 Million Dollar Deal for Las Vegas Residency: Report
According to the The Blast (Jan. 15), sources close to the deal confirm that Drizzy signed a $10 million contract for a residency at XS Nightclub inside the Wynn Las Vegas. Drake had previously hinted at the residency during a performance inside the nightclub.
“Vegas! When I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena or some (stuff),” Drake said during his 30-minute set at the Wynn last Thursday (Jan. 10). “But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me.”
The 32-year-old artist reportedly received a $2 million paycheck for his 30-minute appearance at XS Nightclub, a spot that can hold 1,600 people inside the club and another 3,200 patrons in its outdoor pool area. Throughout the sold-out event, the Toronto native performed a medley of hits like "In My Feelings."
The news of Drake's new residency in Las Vegas comes after the launch of Mod Sélection, which is a new luxury champagne he's started with the help of California-based entrepreneur Brent Hocking. This comes just a little over two years after Drake launched his Virginia Black Whiskey in 2016.
Although he hasn't announced the residency himself yet, Drake did post a photo of his recent performance at XS with the caption "New home." Congrats to Champagne Papi for securing million-dollar bags with his new gig in Sin City. Check out his post below.
