After granting Drake residency — which earns him $2 million USD per show — Las Vegas is now paying tribute to the musician once again with his very own wax statue in the city’s Madame Tussauds.

The wax museum announced on Wednesday that the new Drake statue is now open for the public to visit. Arguably one of Drizzy’s most iconic moments, and without doubt a huge Internet sensation, Madame Tussauds chose to immortalize the singer’s “Hotline Bling” makeup, placing the highly-accurate sculpture dressed in his grey OVO sweatsuit, Timberland boots, and a gold Rolex (replica, of course) against the James Turrell-inspired backdrop. Studio manager Adam Morey explained: “Fortunately, the viral internet sensation of one of his most iconic music videos was the driving design factor for the look and feel of the Drake figure and set at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.”

Morey also explained the painstaking process of creating such an accurate figure of Drake: “Each figure is skillfully crafted by Master sculptors, colorists and stylists out of our studios in Acton, London,” he explains. “Months of data collecting, and research proceed the initial sculpting process in clay. Casts are then created from the clay sculpts that are in turn used to form the wax figures. The next step involves weeks of individual human hair follicles inserted into the face and head forming eyebrows and exact hairlines. Our Master colorist then bring the figures to life with oil paint color pigments that have been precisely matched during the celebrity sitting.”

For those in the city, the new Drake installation is now on display down at Madame Tussauds on the Las Vegas Strip. And for more Drake-related news, here’s how the artist celebrated his home town’s NBA Championship win with the Raptors.
