After grossing a reported $79 million on his Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour last year, Drake continues to cash in on lucrative opportunities. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal (Jan. 10), the 6 God hinted at locking down a possible residency at XS Nightclub during the conclusion of his performance, which he reportedly raked in $2 million for showing up to please the 1,600 in attendance.

"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," Drizzy explained, sending the crowd into an uproar. Sources close to the negotiations told the Review Journal that Drake has inked a 12-show deal over the next two years. 

Las Vegas vacationers will now have the opportunity to see the OVO rapper perform up close and personal in an intimate setting. The Wynn's XS Nightclub has previously booked a range of talented artists for gigs including The Chainsmokers, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Marshmello, and David Guetta.

Billboard has reached out to Drake's reps for confirmation.
