Wayne Newton was once the mainstay draw in Las Vegas.
And then a procession of divas began to get residencies — Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani. All big-name stars, for sure, but by the time they hit the strip their hit-making days were behind them.
Now comes word that Cardi B, one of today’s most consistent performers on both radio and streaming services, will soon be following in their footsteps, and “Danke Schoen” is reportedly on her setlist.
All right, so we made up that last part. But Cardi B, 26, will make her Vegas residency debut in the spring as part of the opening of KAOS, Palms Casino Resort’s new amphitheater-style venue, which will function as a dayclub and nightclub, according to US Weekly.
The venue has also secured residencies for G-Eazy, Skrillex, Above & Beyond and Kaskade. This ain’t your daddy’s Vegas.

Cardi B is on a roll. She will appear in a Pepsi ad, along with Steve Carrell and Lil Jon, during the Super Bowl broadcast on Feb. 3. A sneak peek at the commercial shows Cardi B tapping on a rhinestone-covered Pepsi can with her red, white and blue-painted nails and uttering her signature word “okurrr.”
She has also been nominated for five 2019 Grammys, including record of the year (“I Like It”) and album of the year (“Invasion of Privacy”).
And last week, of course, she began her side hustle as a political pundit with an Instagram video that decried the federal government shutdown.
