Drake Gets His Own Wax Statue At Madame Tussauds In Las Vegas

June 19, 2019

Not only is Drake crushing it at his Las Vegas residency at XS Nightclub, but he's now being eternalized in Sin City with a brand new wax figure at Madame Tussaud's. They revealed a new "Hotline Bling"-themed figure of the rapper in Las Vegas recently which is now open for the public to view. James Turrell designed the set which is part of a full "interactive experience" exhibit that imitates the video for "Hotline Bling."

The wax figure itself looks pretty realistic which is due to the extensive process Morey and his team went through to make it happen. "Each figure is skillfully crafted by Master sculptors, colorists and stylists out of our studios in Acton, London," Morey said. He went on to explain that the process took months to create. 

"Months of data collecting, and research proceed the initial sculpting process in clay," he said. "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."
