After hosting the Juno Awards last year — the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys — and coming up empty-handed, despite receiving six nods, Drake is back again with four nominations at the 2012 Junos, which take place in Ottawa on April 1.

The William Shatner-hosted event pits Drake and singer-songwriter Feist, who has also received four nominations, against one another in the Artist of the Year category. The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced the nominees on Tuesday (Feb. 7), and Nickelback, Feist and Deadmau5 are among the artists scheduled to perform.

Drake is also up for Rap Recording of the Year, the Fan Choice Award and Album of the Year, for which he will battle Canuck titans Nickelback, Justin Bieber, Michael Buble and Avril Lavigne.

The Young Money rapper took home two Junos in 2010, beating out Bieber for New Artist of the Year and also winning Rap Recording of the Year.

Drizzy is also up for three Grammys, including Best Rap Performance and will be presenting an award as well.
