BJame JonassonAnderson .Paak’s track “Bubblin” is nominated for for Best Rap Performance at the 2019 Grammys. Speaking with ABC Radio, he shares his advice for first-time nominees.
“Just have fun. Don’t take it too serious,” he tells ABC Radio. “Just wear something timeless that’s always going to be cool so you can look back 20, 30 years from now and be proud of it.”
Two years ago, the artist/producer was up for Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album for Malibu, though he didn’t win either. Paak knows from experience that worrying about taking home an award can be stressful. He suggests that all nominees have fun, even if they lose.
“If you win, you win. You get really hyped up with The Grammys. You get nominated, then you start thinking you’ll win,” he says. “Just be having fun and maybe have something, a speech ready just in case. Honestly have fun. Go to the parties. Really enjoy the moment.”
Check out if Paak wins his first Grammy when the 61st annual Grammy Awards air Sunday, February 10, live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on CBS.
