Latin and R&B singer Frankie J kicked off Cinco de Mayo Weekend hosting and performing at Pure in Caesars Palace on Friday night. Arriving at the mega-club at 1:30 a.m. — so technically Saturday morning — the sharp dressed man in a black suit and tie walked to his VIP booth, where a group of friends joined him.

Just before 2 a.m., resident DJ Gusto got on the mic to introduce Frankie J, and he launched into his mini-concert that included “Suga Suga” and “Obsession” (not the Animotion song).

Before ending, the handsome crooner told partygoers that he is releasing a new album this month, and then he ended his show with a Spanish-language song. He returned to the VIP booth and spent the rest of the night enjoying cocktails, dancing with friends and mingling with fans.
