Hakkasan Nightclub inside MGM Grand Hotel & Casino hosted the Official 2018 Billboard Music Awards After-Party, which welcomed chart-topping artist Post Malone as he gave an exclusive performance at the nighttime hot spot.
Straight from his win for best rap song at the Billboard Music Awards, Post Malone arrived to the premier venue around 1:30 a.m. and quickly stepped on the blue carpet to pose for a couple of photos before making his way into the jam-packed nightclub. Around 2 a.m., the energy in the main room hit an all-time high as Malone took the stage and kicked-off his anticipated performance with his breakout single “White Iverson.”
The electrified act continued with “Candy Paint,” his certified hit featuring 21 Savage, “Rockstar,” followed by his hit song “Congratulations.” Post Malone capped off an unbelievable performance with his star-studded single with G-Eazy and YG as nearly every partygoer sang along to the latest hit from his chart-topping album. Following his performance, the hitmaker made his way back to his VIP table to enjoy the rest of his night, as he spent time with his guests and took in the sights of the premier nightclub.
Adding to the excitement, singer-songwriter Halsey, Atlanta-born rapper T.I., hip-hop artist French Montana, country star Brett Young, and former member of Fifth Harmony turned solo act Normani Kordei were in attendance to catch the exclusive performance. The celebrities partied and mingled at their VIP section near the DJ booth while enjoying cocktails and dancing to music well into the early hours of the morning.
