Cinco de Mayo weekend was a tremendous success here at Drai’s Beachclub Nightclub with another stacked lineup, so there’s a lot to go over for this recap. We had a special co-headlining Friday evening with TIP and Trey Songz, Saturday saw the return of Trey alongside DJ Pauly D at Drai’s Beachclub, later that night we had the one and only 2 Chainz, and Sunday was the SR3MM album release party with Rae Sremmurd! And a weekend this big means many special guests that came in: 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, Chargers cornerback Casey Edwards and wide receiver Mike Williams, former linebacker Brandon Williams, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers, former MMA champ Tito Ortiz, rapper O.T. Genasis, and many more! It’s now time for our weekly recap:
With both TIP and Trey Songz performing on Friday, it was of course a packed house all evening. Super producer, Trey’s go-to drummer and our very own Amadeus was on drums that night as well, assisting with many of the club bangers. Up first was Trey Songz, getting things started with “Na Na” and “Touchin, Lovin” for the many beautiful ladies in the venue! He then decided to pick things up with “Booty (Remix),” which never fails to get everyone up and moving. “I wanna take it back for a bit,” performing classics “Invented Sex,” “Heart Attack” and “Slow Motion”! It was then TIP’s turn to get on stage, beginning with “Down Low” and “24’s” to cheering fans everywhere! He then goes on a marathon of his hits including “U Don’t Know Me,” “Big Things Poppin,” “Bring Em Out,” “Whatever You Like” and more. TIP performed his latest banger “Certified” for the first time on the Drai’s stage, already proving to be another success. “Since we’re both up in this, I guess it’s only right to bring Trey up here!” We were then treated to them performing “2 Reasons” for the first time together on our stage, with screams filling the air! “Who’s celebrating a birthday up in here, make some noise,” asked Trey, which meant it was time for “Say Aah” with shots being passed around the club! “One time for my little brother Trey Songz! We got hits all night long” said TIP, then going into “Live Your Life” and “What You Know,” with everyone singing along! “I wouldn’t be up on stage without all of y’all, appreciate all of you! Thank you!” You can catch the return of Trey Songz next Tuesday, May 15 for Drai’s Swim Night! Click here to purchase tickets.
Who can ever say no to more Trey Songz? It was Trey’s 2018 Drai’s Beachclub debut that Saturday, alongside the return of DJ Pauly D for Cinco de Mayo! It was jam-packed from start to finish (sold out!), with nonstop bottle parades, beach balls in the air, beautiful weather, great energy… we couldn’t have asked for a better day! “Yeahhhh buddy!” DJ Pauly D kept the party vibes going with “Turn It Around” into “Tremor,” to cheers all over the place! “Las Vegas make some noise!” Pauly played countless chart-toppers for the clubgoers, including “New Freezer,” “Outta Your Mind,” “White Iverson,” “Freaky Friday,” “Last Resort” and much more. “If you in the pool, I need you to splash for my Snapchat right now! I love Las Vegas, I love Drai’s Beachclub!” It was then time for Trey to grace the rooftop stage: “Vegas how you feeling right now?! If you having the time of your life in Vegas make some noise! That’s a vibe…” as he fittingly performs “It’s a Vibe”! He stopped halfway to ask who wants to join him up on stage, with all the girls screaming. He invited a few lucky ladies up, going into “Booty (Remix)” as the girls have a dance-off! “Welcome to Drai’s where everything is amazing. Vegas is amazing, you got everything you want but for me, I only came for two reasons…” Trey then went into performing “2 Reasons” followed up by “Say Aah,” which means shots for everyone! O.T. Genasis made a surprise appearance on stage to hang out with Trey to a warm welcome from everyone! He then closed his set out with “Bottoms Up,” happily hanging out on stage to greet fans afterwards. DJ Pauly D got back on the decks to close this epic day out!

Later that evening saw the return of 2 Chainz at Drai’s Nightclub, with fans all over coming in to catch his return on the stage! He began his set with “No Problem” into “All Me.” “Vegas wassup, if you from out of town make some noise!” as cheers filled the air. “Now I got my new album coming up, Rap or Go to the League. My new single’s dedicated to my momma; put your twos up if you love your momma Vegas!” going into “PROUD.” Donned in top-to-bottom Versace — including the exclusive just-released Chain Reaction sneakers — 2 Chainz performed countless hits like “I’m Different,” “I Luv Dem Strippers,” “Bandz a Make Her Dance” and many more, with tables making it rain to add to the hype! He performed some newer hits as well such as “Land of the Freakz” and “Trap Check.” “Did anyone come to celebrate their birthday? Make some noise for yourselves!” as it was time for “Birthday Song,” and trust us we had A LOT of birthday people making noise! 2 Chainz closed his set out with “ATM” and “4 AM.” “Put your fours up for this one! Vegas I appreciate y’all, 2 Chainz!” You can catch the return of 2 Chainz alongside Trey Songz on Saturday, May 26 during Memorial Day Weekend! Click here to purchase tickets.
Finally for SunDRAI it was an energetic performance from Rae Sremmurd! Fans came out to celebrate the release of their latest triple-disc album SR3MM, as we kept the party going with sounds by DJ Franzen. “Las Vegas WTF is up! SremmLife 3 who got that new album?! Shout out to everybody from out of town right now!” with screams left to right, going into “No Type” and “Come Get Her.” The duo debuted SR3MM tracks “42,” “Buckets” and “Bedtime Stories” on the Drai’s stage to the delight of everyone, and they absolutely killed it! Swae and Jxmmi as always take their time to interact with the fans on stage for some memorable stories! The duo of course performed fan-favorites “No Flex Zone,” “Swang,” and “Unforgettable,” with a surprise appearance from Trey Songz saying what’s up to Swae and Jxmmi! “On the count of 3 let me get a SremmLife!” Swae Lee couldn’t help himself by jumping into the crowd during “Rock N Roll Hall of Fame,” like a true rock star! Rae Sremmurd also performed SR3MM singles “Brxnks Truck,” “Chanel” and “Guatemala,” and did “Powerglide” twice for the fans! They then closed the weekend out with “Black Beatles,” getting everyone to sing along. “Thank you Drai’s, let me get a SremmLife on 3!” You can catch the return of Rae Sremmurd next Friday, May 18!
