Last night, platinum recording artist Drake completed his Light Dreams & Nightmares U.S. Tour and headed to Tryst Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas to celebrate with an entourage of celebrity friends. The breakout hip-hop star walked the black carpet, shaking hands and greeting guests, before posing on the carpet and telling media, “I’m celebrating the end of my tour, the Light Dreams & Nightmares tour, and what better way to do it than party?”
He also shared that he’s planning a break from the stage,sayng he’s been overworked, and is looking forward to getting back to Toronto to spend time with his family before traveling the world for fun, rather than to perform. Although, he might not be away from the studio for long. He mentioned the recent release of his idol Lil Wayne, and when asked if planning to work together soon, he grinned and said, “Whenever he’s ready… Whenever he says the word, I’m there.”
Drake, impressively collaborating with some of the biggest names in music early in his career, also has a hit song out with Rihanna right now titled “What’s My Name?” When asked how it was working with the songstress, he noted, “It’s always great. You know, I love her very much. She’s a great person… Great person in my life… To have a record that’s out and so close to going No. 1, it’s an honor.”
As for goals for the upcoming year he said he hopes to just get better at rapping and singing, and of course “make people happy.”
Drake noted this was his first time really partying in Las Vegas, and he chose to do it surrounded by celebrity friends including boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, NFL players Javon Walker and Steven Jackson, MTV reporter Sway, Jas Prince, Young Money rapper Tyga, Holly Madison and Laura Croft.
Once inside he was escorted to the owner’s table, the premier location to see-and-be-seen overlooking the dance floor, where fans had their cell phones in the air for a single shot of the young superstar. Drake grabbed the mic, welcoming the crowd, thanking everyone for coming out, and saying, “You never know who’s going to show up!” His deejay, Future Prince, then broke into Drake’s current hit with Rihanna.
Drake stood the majority of the night, sipping on Champagne, dancing with friends and looking over the sea of worshippers that erupted every time one of his hits blasted out from the deejay booth. The crowd also went wild when Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie” came across the speakers, with Drake joining one of his friends in performing the moves that made the hit dance song a sensation.
E! reality star and Las Vegas performer Holly Madison walked the carpet saying everyone she knows is a fan of Drake and she was excited to come out to see what he was all about.
