December 3, 2015 at 3:59 AM (PT)
DEEZER and renowned comic illustrator BRIAN WILLIAMSON have collaborated to turn some of this year’s biggest music moments into the DEEZER ANNUAL, a collection of limited edition pieces of art that are available to buy, raising money for international charity WAR CHILD.
Leading global music streaming service DEEZER employed a team of 50 dedicated music editors around the world who looked at the biggest stories of the year, then cross-referenced it with its own streaming data to pull together the final 10, brought to life in humorous style with WILLIAMSON’s rich illustrations.
The full list of illustrations to appear in the DEEZER ANNUAL is as follows:
- ZAYN quits ONE DIRECTION, which saw streaming data for the band increase by 55% globally.
- JUSTIN BIEBER redeems himself with global smash hit "What Do You Mean?"
- MADONNA falls off-stage during a live BRITS performance.
- DAVE GROHL breaks his leg mid-performance, but still finishes the show.
- NICKY MINAJ and TAYLOR SWIFT are embroiled in a TWITTER tantrum over the MTV VMAs nominations.
- DRAKE triggers a million memes with the release of "Hotline Bling" video, while global streams increased by 218% after the video dropped.
- RIHANNA causes controversy with her violent and graphic "Bitches Better Have My Money."
- THE WEEKND's "Can't Feel My Face" proved a smash, its daily streaming ‘peak’ was reached on OCTOBER 3rd..
- Shirtless SHIA LaBEOUF shocks fans as he wrestles a tiny girl in SIA’s "Elastic Heart" video.
- KANYE WEST experiences the bitter taste of karma, after his headline GLASTONBURY slot is upstaged by prankster LEE NELSON, though his UK listening figures still spiked 66%.
Fans will have the opportunity to win the inaugural illustration of each design by placing an online bid at deezer.auction-bid.org. All money raised through the auction will go directly to WAR CHILD – an international charity that helps children whose lives have been torn apart by wars in areas including SYRIA, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN and the CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC.
Commented DEEZER U.K./IRELAND Music Editor SAM LEE, “2015 has been a great year for fans of music, but arguably even a better year for fans of drama and headlines. KANYE loomed large over everything that happened – despite him not actually releasing a new album this year. We can’t wait to see what's in-store for next year!”
