Drake is soon to be running through Sin City with his woes!

The Wynn Las Vegas announced Thursday that the Grammy award-winning rapper will perform five shows at the XS Nightclub beginning May 4, to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of the club. The residency will “include a brand new stage and cutting-edge production” in the club space, according to a press release revealing the news.

“It’s an absolute honor to welcome Drake to the Wynn family. Drake and Wynn Las Vegas are planning on bringing something spectacular to the stage at XS,” Alex Cordova, managing partner of Wynn Nightlife said in a statement. “We are redefining nightlife and anchoring our new vision with one of the most celebrated artists of this decade. Our team is thrilled with the endless possibilities of partnering with such a creative force.”

The OVO rapper, 32, first sparked rumors about a possible residency when he took the stage at XS Nightclub on Jan. 10 during the city’s annual Consumers Electronics Show week, where he hinted at future plans during his appearance.

“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 lot of chances to see me,” he said to the crowd.

Shortly thereafter, Drake shared a photo of his gig at the club on social media, proclaiming it his “new home.”

Drake, who picked up the best rap song Grammy earlier this month, follows in the footsteps of some of Hollywood’s most talented artists who have flocked to Las Vegas for their must-see residency shows, including Britney Spears, Céline Dion, Gwen Stefani, Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and many more.

Tickets for the May 4 and May 18 shows are on sale now.
