His 26th birthday is on the horizon and looking “sweet sweet” for Travis Scott.
Fresh off his Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho collaboration with Quavo and a Grammy nomination for 2017’s “Love Galore” with SZA, the “Goosebumps” rapper is readying his third studio album, Astroworld, which is set to drop in March and has already lit the internet ablaze with fan rumors and “Everything We Know So Far” articles.
Then there’s the revelation that he’s set to become a father with reality television queen Kylie Jenner. Again, cue the fan rumors and “Everything We Know So Far” articles.
But the gossip hordes never seem to faze Scott when he’s onstage, and that’s all that matters to local and visiting crowds flocking to see him on February 3 at Marquee Nightclub inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
For Scott, the Strip must be feeling like a second home.
Returning to Las Vegas as an exclusive resident at Marquee—on the eve of the Super Bowl—Scott’s February 3 performance is likely to draw a packed house of fans, VIPs and celebrities who’d much rather spend their weekend in sunny Las Vegas than frigid Minneapolis.
What Scott’s got up his sleeve is anyone’s guess, but there’s no doubt fans are hoping to hear some new Astroworld tracks interspersed with his established hits.
However it plays out, Scott’s continued popularity speaks to the growing diversity among Las Vegas’ roster of resident headliners. While the majority of this decade has been dominated by electronic dance music on the Strip, nightclubs are more and more embracing the power of artists who can introduce live vocals and instruments to the scene.
Marquee, for its part, has found the perfect balance. The nightclub’s Big Game Weekend show with Scott is just the start of a strong slate of lineups, featuring the likes of residents DJ Chuckie, Andrew Rayel, DJ Ruckus and Oliver Heldens.
The legendary Raekwon da Chef and Ghostface Killah are even taking over Marquee on February 12 for a special performance during the Official PROJECT Party, in conjunction with the week’s MAGIC fashion convention.
Don Diablo and DJ Mustard will cap the month of February with back-to-back shows, just before the 2018 debut of Marquee Dayclub and pool season on the Las Vegas Strip.
As for Scott, with Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho charting, Astroworld on deck and a social media following—more than 10 million fans on Instagram and Twitter—that few artists his age can even dream of, he seems like the ideal candidate to lead Las Vegas nightlife into the new season.
We can’t to see what happens this year.
