Getting a residency deal in Vegas is not something reserved for your normal artiste. It is something often reserved for the top 1% of the top 1% of artistes.
Chris Brown recently earned his own residency, signing a deal with the nightclub Drai. The deal is for a six show, $50,000 per show performance gigs.
Drai has already started advertising for Chris’ first show, slated for October 6.
“Chris Brown is on the verge of creating his own Vegas residency dynasty … he just signed on with a big time nightclub.
Sources close to Chris tell TMZ, the singer inked a trial run type deal with Drai’s to perform at least 6 shows at $50k per pop. We’re told the club has been so impressed with the large crowds and great shows Chris has put on in the past, they’ve decided to test out a long term deal.
But that’s not all … our sources say Trey Songz is part of the deal and will be rotating with Chris. We’re told the total talent fee investment is around $500k.
It’s still a far cry from the cash J-Lo, Britney Spears and Mariah rake in, but hey — you gotta start somewhere.”
