With millions of us holding our breath for the Rihanna NFL Super Bowl performance at half time, Playboy brilliantly created a mesmerizing weekend of events.
After the first three nights of the Pepsi Zero Sugar & E11even Miami by Cardi B and G-Eazy, including debut night with Rick Ross, the illustrious W Scottsdale embraced multi-hyphenate global sensation Ludacris on the schedule for the fourth night during the Playboy annual Big Game Weekend party.
Luda sang for 45 minutes all his greatest hits and had the crowd up singing and dancing along.
Songs: What’s Your Fantasy, Roll Out, Area Codes, Stand Up, Get Back, Money Maker, and more.
Upon entering the stage, Ludacris dripped into designer duds from the Supreme x Playboy collection while rocking avant-garde shades and commanded the attention of the public with his hit list. As the crowd grew more and more enthusiastic and frantically waved its hands toward the sky, some of today’s most prolific sports stars could be seen savoring coveted artisanal cocktails. And sprinkled throughout, a handful of the brightest in Hollywood has been spotted mixing and nibbling. Guests couldn’t seem to get enough of the scrumptious Cookie Pop and Candy Pop treats which came in an assortment of flavors, the all new Cereal Pop Fruity Pebbles, plus signature Snickers, Sour Patch Kids, OREO, M&Ms, Twix and Butterfinger.
After the completion of his set, Ludacris made us blush as he wiped the beads of sweat from his face.
W Scottsdale hosted a memorable weekend of shows with a plethora of immersive installations provided by Playboy that will forever be ingrained in our minds. Certainly a fashionable evening largely within the framework of the gracious organizers and the attentive team of the establishment.
