Desiigner Celebrates 2016 With Music Choice 100 Awards [Video]
Today, Nov. 25, Music Choice will count down its top 100 music videos and award the best for impacting the year that was 2016. In a first time move by the longstanding artist-powered channel, stars such as Rihanna, Drake, Meghan Trainor and more will be on-hand to share the distinction of being the best in the business.
Aired via television sets around the globe and mobile devices (it was kind of cool to see) — the 2016 Music Choice 100 event is the essential event for today’s longtime music fan and entertainment lover. Which makes sense because the top 100 music videos and their artist are fully calculated by fan video orders, so the reason for this list is because of YOU.
While this year’s list features many familiar faces (we see you, Adele!) — the Music Choice 100 also has several artists who are newcomers to this award. One in particular, Tompkin Avenue’s own Desiigner, landed his first trophy from Music Choice for “Top Video of the Year”. The music video was filmed in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood he calls home, so Desiigner’s infectious energy and charismatic penchant for ad-libs in this thank you clip will endear him to a larger audience also looking to have a good time.
If you want to know who else made the list, be sure to download the Music Choice app or tune in on your television as the special will be airing on Nov. 25.
