As the 53rd Grammy Awards draws closer, rapper Drake finds himself feeling a lot more at ease than he did this time last year.
In addition to his 4 nominations, Drake will be performing a duet with Rihanna.
"We're just having fun, we enjoy each other's energy. We decided to make that the basis of the performance," Drake said. "It's very elaborate and I think people will enjoy it a lot. It's got a lot of energy to it... A little bit of fire, it's some things going on, on that stage for sure."
One person Drake credits with helping him to relax and feel like he belongs on the Grammy stage is Eminem.
"I was just extremely nervous last year getting on the Grammy stage. And he [Eminem] was just like, 'man you know just enjoy it, but if you need reassurance before you verse comes, look at me i'll give it back to you.' Drake said. "And I did, I came out there and I looked right at him and he nodded at me and I knew like 'I'm ok up here.'"
The 53rd Annual Grammys airs Sunday February 13 at 8 pm eastern.
