Have you been keeping tabs on Trey Songz? The “Na Na” hitmaker recently headed wayyy down South to perform—we’re not talking about the Southern U.S., though. The R&B singer from Petersburg, Virginia, played two shows in Durban and Johannesburg, South Africa, in August. Now that he’s back in the States, give him a hero’s welcome when he performs at Drai’s. (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m., Perhaps you prefer boomin’ bass over smooth R&B. If so, you’re in luck, because GTA is in town. If you didn’t know, the acronym stands for “Good Times Ahead,” and they recently announced a fall tour with K Camp, Sweater Beats and Wax Motif called Goons Take America. Unfortunately, that tour won’t make a Las Vegas stop, so tonight, hear the heavy tunes at Light. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m.,

You might be asking yourself, “It’s Labor Day weekend; where are the celebrities?” Look no further than Marquee. Philadelphia funnyman Kevin Hart parties at the club for Hartbeat Weekend, and he’s bound to bring a few more celebrities with him. Last year, Hart partied with Kendrick Lamar, Solange and Keri Hilson. This year, details are still hush-hush, but the soundtrack will be provided by Eric D-Lux. Get ready to brush shoulders with some A-listers! (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

Sunday as a day of rest? Blasphemy! It’s a holiday weekend, and you should take full advantage of this momentous occasion. Luckily, you can spend all day at Foxtail for the All Day Labor Day Sunday party with ex-Cash Money Records artist Lil’ Wayne and New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap. Both have had No. 1 hits on the Billboard charts, so this daylong shebang is worth bragging about. You can strive to be “Right Above It” and cook pies with your “Trap Queen” in one convenient location! (In SLS, 10:30 a.m., Speaking of Lil’ Wayne, his protégé Drake hits Boulevard Pool as part of the aforementioned Hartbeat Weekend. Drake’s beef with Philly rapper Meek Mill has simmered down ever since he performed in front of a backdrop that showcased memes poking fun at the quarrel. See if any new developments unfold. And while you’re there, turn up to the climax of “Know Yourself,” and sing along to the smooth falsetto of “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” Either way you’re bound to receive “Blessings” from the “6 God.” (In the Cosmopolitan, 8 p.m.,

Happy Labor Day! Spend a hard-earned day off at a pool party with one of the world’s biggest DJs, Calvin Harris. The Scottish singer/producer/DJ dropped a steamy music video for “How Deep Is Your Love,” which features supermodel and notable #SwiftSquad member Gigi Hadid. In it, she wanders across Malibu’s extensive party landscape—the good and the bad. See if Hadid pops up today along with girlfriend Taylor Swift when Harris spins at Wet Republic. He’ll be joined by Melbourne house giant Generik, so you can dive into the fun. (At MGM Grand, 11 a.m.,

Have you listened to the song “Renegade Mastah” by HI-LO? It’s a bumpin’ bass-heavy house banger. Take a listen and you’ll discover that the heavy low-end is reminiscent of Oliver Heldens’ signature sound. That’s because HI-LO is Oliver Heldens. The project presents a darker side of the house heavyweight, and songs, such as the rambunctious “Crank It Up” show why the 20-year-old producer decided to separate his projects. Catch Heldens at Omnia, and see if he drops new HI-LO material. Make sure you address him by his full name tonight, though. (In Caesars Palace, 10 p.m.,

Midweek, shmidweek! Get over Hump Day at Surrender with a set by TJR. He’s best known for producing Pitbull’s celebratory anthem, “Don’t Stop the Party,” and it’s fitting because even though it’s the Wednesday after a huge weekend, there’s always a reason to party, right? Find your own, then head to the club and dance to his twerk tune, “Ass Hypnotized.” (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,
