Best Drake Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

With some of this generations best music hits, Drake has claimed the record for most Billboard hot 100 entries ever. Drake rewrites the record for the most entries ever on the Billboard Hot 100, as he lands his 208th career title on the latest list, dated March 21.

TV and rap star Drake is best known in Canada for playing wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks on ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation,’ and for hit songs like “Take Care,” “One Dance” and “Hotline Bling.” The multi-Grammy-award-winning rapper Drake has had two shots at fame — and nailed them both. He first came to prominence in the teen soap Degrassi: The Next Generation in the role of Jimmy Brooks, a wheelchair-bound character he played for seven years. After leaving the show he became one of the biggest rappers on the planet after signing a deal with Lil Wayne’s label Young Money Entertainment. He is rarely out of the headlines, whether it’s for dating Rihanna or Jennifer Lopez, founding his own label, OVO Sound, or fronting the NBA’s Toronto Raptors as the team’s global ambassador. It’s no surprise that Jay Z labeled him as the Kobe Bryant of hip hop.

Drake is known for his egotistical lyrics, technical ability, and integration of personal backstory when dealing with relationships with women. His vocal abilities have been lauded for an audible contrast between typical hip-hop beats and melody, with sometimes abrasive rapping coupled with softer accents, delivered on technical lyricism. His songs often include audible changes in lyrical pronunciation in parallel with his upbringing in Toronto, and connections with Caribbean and Middle Eastern countries which include such phrases as “ting”, “touching road”, “talkin’ boasy” and “gwanin’ wassy”. Most of his songs contain R&B and Canadian hip hop elements, and he combines rapping with singing. He credits his father with the introduction of singing into his rap mixtapes, which have become a staple in his musical repertoire. His incorporation of melody into technically complex lyrics was supported by Lil Wayne, and has subsequently been a critically acclaimed component to Drake’s singles and albums.

Las Vegas residents can get used to seeing Drake around. The 6 God kicked off his Sin City residency on May 4, 2019 with a performance at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub. The boy is slated to make his return to Vegas as part of his lucrative 10-show run, which is reportedly paying him $10 million in the city of sin. You can check out the events at Wynn’s XS here.

Best Gryffin Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

GRYFFIN was born in San Francisco, California. Dan Gryffith grew up as a classically trained pianist and learned to play the guitar at an early age. He played in bands to initially hone his instrumental abilities. He studied electrical engineering at the University of Southern California where he took much of his leisure time in his dorm room to work on music. When asked on his key lessons of music production, he said: “At the beginning, I just released music with the main goal of having my friends play it at college parties and I never would have imagined it would get to this point”. He made his ‘world’ debut at the SnowGlobe Music Festival 2015.

With his debut single “Heading Home” featuring Josef Salvat, Gryffin introduced the world to his magnetic take on electronic music: infinitely melodic, immaculately composed, massive in emotion. In the three years since that track shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts, the LA-based producer has pushed his artistry to a bold new level, transcending genre boundaries while drawing larger and larger crowds for his unforgettable multi-instrumental, live show. 

In the spirit of defying expectations, Gryffin has dramatically expanded the scale of his live show, dreaming up an elaborate set and light design that visually manifests the cosmic themes threaded throughout Gravity. A longtime guitarist and classically trained pianist, he’s now joined onstage by a drummer and guitarist/keyboardist, transforming the most precisely crafted tracks into arena-sized anthems with a thrillingly raw energy. 

Gryffin recently landed a residency with Wynn Nightlife in Las Vegas, playing shows at Encore Beach Club, EBC At Night, and XS. He’s also played at many EDM venues and clubs around the world, including Omnia SD, Echostage, and Bill Graham Auditorium, in addition to festivals such as Coachella, EDC, and Moonrise.

Best Nora En Pure Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Daniela Niederer (born July 20, 1990), better known by her stage name Nora En Pure, is a South African-Swiss DJ and deep house producer.

She first found creative inspiration, weaving her influences of South African roots in combining an exotic setting accompanied by tribal percussion sounds and a melody composed by classical instrumentation, either by wind instruments and piano chords and harmonious synthesizers often integrating organic nature sounds.

Having travelled a lot in her life, Nora En Pure music should create a sort of wanderlust. Being part of the Helvetic Nerds in Switzerland and the main force of the Enormous Tunes label, her tracks as well as the label’s releases have developed a characteristic sound, that is well recognizable. Nora En Pure was one of the first artists of her kind of melodic deep house sound. Instead of following the trend towards the more commercial vocal melodic house, the productions and live sets always remained unique connecting dots between different and disparate sounds, styles and scenes with ease and in her own raw style setting her apart from the mainstream.

Nora recently landed a residency with Wynn Nightlife in Las Vegas, playing shows at Encore Beach Club, EBC At Night, and XS.

See a full list of upcoming Nora En pure shows here.

Without further ado, Nora En Pure’s top 5 tracks of all time:

There’s also a rooftop terrace upstairs that has it’s own DJ, typically playing more chill music. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to hear the main DJ unless you’re in the main room.

On the Record at the MGM (Open Format)

Front Entrance of On The Record at Park MGM Las Vegas

The experience, unlike any other nightclub in the city, sits across from the Park Theater with a record store entrance that spans two floors.

Club-goers then head to a speakeasy door that leads to an 11,000-square-foot space outfitted with speakers, TV screens, and cassette tapes from yesteryear. Visitors can try out one of the three karaoke rooms, step out on the patio with that double-decker bus, or head to the main room with a deejay booth fashioned from a Rolls-Royce.

Then there’s a living room space with a fireplace, and the vinyl parlor, where guest bartenders sling specialty drinks.

Drai’s After Hours at The Cromwell (2 rooms – 1 Hip Hop, 1 EDM)

After Hours Tables at Drais After Hours Las Vegas

So, the DJ is starting to wind down at the club you’re at but you’ve still got a solid six or seven hours of party left in you. It’s the timeless dilemma many of us have encountered at some point or another.

What to do, what to do… Head to Drai’s After Hours in The Cromwell. Look for the gold elevator marked with the curvaceous body of a woman in ruby red dress. The club is located underground where it originally opened in the Barbary Coast. Plain and simple, if you’re looking for after-hours fun on the Strip, this is the place to be. Cashing in on everything saucy about after-hours, Drai’s digs deep to give you a club experience like no other. Drai’s pioneered the “after-hours” late-night concept in 1997, providing an intimate and exclusive spot where the party continued til sunrise.

Drai’s features two separate rooms – one playing hip hop and one playing electronic music. Be forewarned – on occasion when it gets really busy you may have to pay an extra cover charge to get into the hip hop room. But you can’t put a price on fun!


Move over, slot machines! Las Vegas is shifting from the center of the gambling universe to the center of the nightclub phenomenon, giving Ibiza and Rio a run for their bottle-service money.

Only a few years ago, few people could have predicted how DJ-driven electronic dance music would take off in Sin City, but today, it’s the new paradigm of true over-the-top Vegas vogue, with the world’s top nightclubs — Hakassan (MGM Grand), XS and OMNIA (Caesars Palace), Marquee (Cosmopolitan), and Drai’s (The Cromwell) — leading the charge.

Floor-to-ceiling screens featuring the most impressive visual and lighting effects ever seen, crystal-clear audio at ear-splitting decibels, 80-sided LED disco balls, the world’s highest-grossing celebrity DJs, and a teeming mass of fist-pumping humanity all combine for non-stop after-dark debauchery.

Of course, you’ll have to navigate the lines, payoffs at the door, and money-grubbing scene inside. And remember, if you don’t look like the 21st-century version of Superfly, forget about passing the dress test.

Encore Beach Club at Wynn Encore (EDM)

Crowded Pool Party called Encore Beach Club  in Las Vegas

Encore Beach Club’s 50,000 square foot space features lounges, couches, daybeds, cabanas, bungalows, lily pads, 3 pools, a gaming pavilion, a state of the art sound system, the EBC girls, champagne showers, and beautiful people as far as the eye can see.

The layout of EBC is truly what separates this pool party from the others. The pool is always clean, the EDM music is great, the dance floor is easily accessible and food is served which is always a bonus. The crowd is usually young and upbeat so partying is elevated to another level of fun and enjoyment.But that’s not all. During the summer, Encore Beach Club turns into EBC at Night, which features night swims. That means you can wear a swimsuit, get into the pool and party with your favorite DJ under the stars!

Drai’s Beach Club at Cromwell (Hip Hop)

A Busy Pool Party at Drais Beach Club at the Cromwell Las Vegas

Found on the 11th floor of The Cromwell, Drai’s Beach Club reigns over what is arguably the busiest intersection in Vegas. During the daytime, it’s a beach pool party on steroids; in the evening, it morphs into an upscale high-voltage nightclub. The dayclub features an unblocked rooftop which displays an unrivaled view of the Red Rock Mountains in the distance and the Bellagio fountains which is located across the street.

The central pool is surrounded by palm trees while pink curtains cover the second-floor cabanas outfitted with HD TVs — but with all the beautiful people dancing to the tunes of a live DJ, it’s doubtful anyone will be watching much television. The nightclub is a two-story indoor space facing the dayclub pool and includes shiny black, semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station surrounded by columns decorated with tons of postage stamp-sized mirrors.

Drai’s will very often be playing top 40 / hip hop but it always depends on the DJ. On occasion they will bring in EDM DJs such as Quintino or Sidney Samson; on these days you’ll get a mix of hip hop and EDM.

Pro-tip: Hotel guests at the Cromwell get free access to the dayclub.

Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan (EDM)

View of the Massive Pool Party Marquee Dayclub at Cosmopolitan

A sprawling club complex in the heart of North America’s ultimate party city, Marquee is arguably one of the key architects of the Stateside dance music revolution. Split into Marquee Dayclub — a sun-blazed, opulent poolside space open during the Summer season — and Marquee Nightclub, with its three different areas (The Boom Box Room, Library and Main Room), it’s undoubtedly one of the most impressive venues in the US.

Credit for this claim goes to Marquee’s sound and light systems. Marquee has a Funktion One sound system with 32,000-watt subwoofers and a state-of-the-art audio-visual stage set-up designed by Steve Liberman. The venue looks and sounds spectacular enough to wow the high rollers that have been known to frequent the venue.

The dayclub features three-story Bungalow Lofts, complete with cabanas, living quarters, grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top. This place gets wild.

Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay (Hip Hop)

Busy Pool Party with DJ at Daylight Beach Club Las Vegas

Daylight Beach Club (DBC) made its debut Summer 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and since then has gone on to become one of the hottest dayparties in Las Vegas. Daylight features 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas, 6 LED screens, a 5,000 sq foot pool. The venue is spacious which means the club offers tons of room to roam around and explore. Shoulder to shoulder clubbing can get old real quick.

Like Light nightclub at the Mandalay, Daylight initially started out playing primarily EDM, but with last year’s change in management, Daylight has shifted to a Hip Hop / top 40 vibe. Daylight is open during the summer Vegas pool season, which usually starts late March/early April and runs until Labor Day.

Pro-tip: We have a free guestlist for girls and even ratio parties that include drink tickets.

By day, guests can secure a reservation to lounge poolside in one of 12 luxury cabanas that features such amenities as air-conditioning, high definition plasma screen televisions with gaming consoles, WiFi and customized mini bars. Other amenities include sunglasses cleaning and a staff of masseuses. TAO Beach is not your typical dayparty experience. 

Asian-inspired daybeds are scattered throughout the 18,000-square-foot oasis which includes a 30-foot bar where guests can sip on TAO-tinis and TAO-jitos made with fresh exotic ingredients. An extensive appetizer and grill menu is also available.

The outdoor oasis serves as an extension of the famed nightclub every Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the season with cabanas and tables for VIP bottle service. As night falls, guests will find themselves in an open-air nightclub featuring two 14-foot fire columns, high-energy music from resident and international guest DJs and strategically-placed beds which are perfect for lounging with friends while taking in the action. 

TAO Beach always plays a mix of top 40 / hip hop / open format music. Bottle service here is fairly reasonably priced as far as dayclubs go.

Bare Pool at The Mirage (Hip Hop/ Top 40)

View of the Pool at Bare Pool Inside Mirage Las Vegas

Bare Pool is located at the Mirage. To find Bare Pool, one must trek down a winding path through a jungle oasis that feels like a secret hideaway. Upon arrival, you’ll find an intimate pool area where women are free to wander around topless if they choose. Bare offers a more relaxing, chill atmosphere without the wall-to-wall packed in feeling of some of the other clubs. You’ll find 14,000 square feet that includes two luxury dipping pools, a full service bar, six plasma screens, poolside daybeds, chaise lounge chairs and cabanas. As with many of the Vegas pool clubs, expect to find an endless number of beautiful people, scantily clad and looking to be seen.

The atmosphere at Bare Pool is a lot more chill and laid back than that of the other dayclubs / pools. If you’re looking for an out of control rager, you’ll want to skip Bare. If you’re looking for a place to lie down, chill, hang out with friends with some background music, Bare Pool is your spot!

Bonus: XS Nightswim at the Wynn (EDM)

Are you a fan of nightclubs? How about pool parties? A few clubs in Las Vegas have combined the two to create the nightswim –  the pool party at night.

The Sunday nightswim at XS is the undisputed king. Featuring dry 80 degree nights, beautiful people, and the biggest DJs in the world, nightswims are a unique experience that are essential to any Vegas trip. XS does not host a day party so your only opportunity to get in the water at the King of Clubs is the Sunday XS nighswim. 

XS nightswim on Sundays is THE best party in Vegas, hosting up to 5,000 people in a gorgeous venue. Party to the beats of DJs and artists such as The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, Diplo, Alesso, Kygo, and Drake. If you’re in Vegas Sunday night, you need to be at this party.


Since the opening of Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel in 2003, the day-clubbing phenomenon has turned Las Vegas into a 24-hour party paradise.

Of all America’s major cities, only Phoenix and Arizona matches Las Vegas for sunshine. On average, 85% of the hours from dawn until dusk are showered in golden rays meaning it’s always pool weather here. Since the weather is phenomenal, the big hotels all compete to build better and more elaborate spaces for bathing and partying. Caesars’ recently revamped Garden of the Gods complex.

But, since this is Las Vegas, merely splashing around in water is not enough, no matter how cool the pool. In the past 10 years, the non-stop party vibe of Las Vegas has been cranked up a notch with the introduction of the day club. For the real money-no-object VIP experience, book a cabana.

Entering its 5th year of action, XS is still the undeniable King of Clubs. Considered by many to be one of the “most luxuriously designed nightclubs on earth,” XS continues to win five star rankings and adoration from club-goers who enjoy the 40,000 square feet of sprawling dance floor, outdoor patio, and pool area.

The design was inspired by the curves of a human body and it owns a 10 foot rotating chandelier and rich gold, black and brown color scheme. A Vegas trip is not complete without a night at XS.

Many reviewers rave about the pool side bottle service and the extravagant night performances hosted by some of the biggest DJs and artists in the world. A fair warning, XS is not your local bar. In fact, it’s safe to say drinks will be far more expensive then your $5 margarita or $7 IPA.

With that being said, bottle service at XS might be the more reliable option, rather than just showing up and begging a security guard to let you in. Luckily for you, the Discotech app can allievate all confusion and stress. How?

That’s how valuable and excellent this club is. Surrounded by top tier competition and yet they continue to exceed our expecations and set themselves apart.
