If you’ve seen the Backstreet Boys’ show at the AXIS at Planet Hollywood, you know they like to get up close and personal with their fans, particularly when they leap off the stage and into the crowd while performing “All I Have to Give.” On Saturday, February 17, they have a little more to give. BSB returns to Chateau at the neighboring Paris Las Vegas for an official show afterparty starting at 10:30 p.m.

Kent Jones might have another international-themed hit on his hands. Best known for the multilingual dance track “Don’t Mind,” the Tallahassee-born singer and rapper who operates on DJ Khaled’s label just dropped “Merengue,” a piano-heavy tune that name-drops Marc Anthony and references Big Pun’s “Still Not a Player” with its “boricua, morena“ chorus. Catch Jones’ Latin vibes at Light at Mandalay Bay on Friday, February 16.

Speaking of Latin-flavored hip-hop, Bronx fave Fat Joe returns to perform a full concert at Drai’s on Sunday, February 18, when DJ Franzen controls the decks. On the EDM front, Robin Schulz plays Intrigue at Wynn on Saturday, February 17, the same night that Oliver Heldens returns to his residency at Marquee at the Cosmopolitan.
