Deezer Users Predict Grammy Winners
February 8, 2016 at 1:21 PM (PT)
With THE GRAMMY AWARDS a week away, DEEZER users have weighed in on their picks for this year's winners.
Some of their observations:
-- MEGHAN TRAINOR would win Best New Artist if the award were based on global streams
-- FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE is the group we like to listen to the most in HD in the Bestg Pop Vocal category
-- FETTY WAP would beat KANYE WEST, KENDRICK LAMAR and COMMON for Best Rap Song with more than three times the number of streams as DRAKE, who comes in second
-- WIZ KHALIFA’s "See You Again" streamed almost 100% more than ED SHEERAN’s hit "Thinking Out Loud"
Commented DEEZER UK & IRELAND Music Editor SAM LEE: "The GRAMMYS is one of the biggest nights in the music calendar, and our streaming data has thrown up a few surprises, such as FETTY WAP being more popular than hip-hop heavyweights like KANYE and KENDRICK. Although, with a tune as massive as 'Trap Queen', maybe we shouldn't be too shocked."
