The rapper has inked a multi-year agreement for a minimum 10 show commitment at the nightspot, which is located inside the Wynn Las Vegas casino and hotel.
A source told The Blast that the Canadian star was “highly sought after by many clubs in Las Vegas”, but, after discussions with many different clubs, “chose XS due to its high exposure and ability to consistently bring in the biggest crowds”.
Separate sources close to the negotiations told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the deal will see Drake play 12 shows over a two-year period. So is that really considered a residency? That sounds more like a timeshare to me.
The report comes after Drake hinted at a residency deal last Thursday as he performed at XS during the Consumers Electronics Show.
“Vegas! When I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena or some (stuff). But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me,” he told the cheering crowd.
