In October, the chart-topper is slated to host a three-day Las Vegas experience, titled Justin Bieber & Friends, The Vegas Weekender, featuring headlining performances from artists including David Guetta, The Kid LAROI, Kehlani, Jaden Smith and the “Peaches” vocalist himself. The event will also include a skate park takeover featuring pro-skater Nyjah Huston, as well as pop-up shops with the singer’s favorite food and drink items.
Elsewhere in music, Kanye West is on track to break the record for most No. 1 albums this century.
