Cardi B lands a Las Vegas Residency at the Palms Casino Resort — a first for the Grammy-nominated rapper! Here’s everything to know!
Cardi B, 26, is about to make money moves in Vegas! The Grammy-nominated rapper will headline her very own residency this spring at KAOS — a new dayclub and nightclub amphitheater-style complex set to open in Sin City in April, the Palms Casino Resort announced Wednesday, January 23! G-Eazy, Skrillex, Kaskade and Above and Beyond will also have exclusive residencies at the resort and casino, The Associated Press reports. Tickets for select dates are available.
The Palms is currently undergoing a $690 million renovation, according to AP. And, the final product is slated to be over-the-top. The renovations are reported to include “state-of-the-art technology,” including a DJ booth that rotates 360 degrees, all of which are designed to enhance performances by the top artists.
Although the news was just released, Cardi’s been working on securing a Vegas residency for quite some time. “She’s secretly been working on this project for a while now, and she’s thrilled it finally happened,” a source close to the rapper tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “This residency will be a huge money maker for her, and will also allow her to focus the rest of her time on being an amazing mom to Kulture.”
“Cardi also felt like the spring time was the perfect moment for her to kick off this residency since she will have just finished her international tour and the Grammys — it will be the perfect time for her to put all of her energy into this new venture.”
Cardi’s residency comes at a busy time in her already groundbreaking career. She will perform Super Bowl 53 weekend in Atlanta when the New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, February 3. The “Twerk” rapper will hit the stage with Bruno Mars, 33, during the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest on the night before the big game. She’s also rumored to be one of the stars of Pepsi’s annual Super Bowl commercial spot. Cardi will then head to LA, where she will perform at the 2019 Grammys on February 10. The rapper is up for five awards — Album of the Year (Invasion of Privacy), Record (“I Like It”), Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy), Pop Duo/Performance (“Girls Like You” ft. Maroon 5), and Rap Performance (“Be Careful”).
Before her busy schedule kicks off in February, Cardi spent a few days at an undisclosed location, where she filmed a secret project. She teased the forthcoming production on social media on January 22. After wrapping the project, she headed home to her estranged husband, Migos rapper Offset, 26, and their daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, who she gave birth to in July.
While Cardi and Offset haven’t confirmed that they’re back together, she gave fans hope for a reconciliation when she hinted that she misses Offset in a post on Instagram, January 22. “I wanna go home,” she captioned a cute screen-grab of a FaceTime conversation with her estranged husband. In the photo, Offset held their daughter, while he kissed the side of her face.
Cardi announced the couple’s split in a now deleted video on Instagram in early December, after Offset was accused of cheating on her (which wasn’t the first time). And, as you may know, Offset later admitted during an (IG) apology video that while he did “entertain” another woman, he never slept with her.
