Earlier in the day, DJ Havana Brown arrived in Vegas ready to pump up the energy of Hyde’s partygoers, tweeting: “Feeling good about tonight!!! Will be fun.” Escorted by her entourage, she arrived at the sleek, new nightclub just before midnight. Wearing leather pants and a black fringed jacket with gold embellishments, she posed for pictures on the red carpet before heading inside. Once inside, Brown and friends made their way to a plush VIP booth as Hyde’s masked performance artists greeted them carrying giant letters spelling out “HAVANA.”

Later in the night, Brown climbed up into the DJ booth high above the packed crowd and took the mic asking everyone to “Make some noise!”. Kicking off her performance, she spun an exclusive DJ set featuring popular dance, hip-hop and R&B tracks including Nikki Minaj, LMFAO, Jay Z and more. She had the whole club dancing as she interacted with the crowd and playfully sang some of her own songs including “Big Banana” and “Last Night.” To finish off the night, she performed her popular collaboration with Pit Bull, “We Run The Night,” as sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff sang along in the crowd.
