Each artist’s playlist will also champion a wide variety of their local genres, including French rap (Niska for France), Brazilian Funk (Mc Kevinho for Brazil), German electronic (Paul Kalkbrenner for Germany), and Nigerian Afrobeats (DaVido for Nigeria).

Deezer’s ‘Football Fever’ channel is also getting fans into the football spirit with local ‘Top Anthems’ played at World Cup tournaments over the last 60 years, chosen specially by Deezer music editors.

Sulinna Ong, Deezer’s Global VP of Artist Marketing commented: “Football, like music, is about bringing people together. Just as the World Cup gathers the best in football talent from all over the world, Deezer has gathered the best in global musical talent for this summer’s matches.
