The Lincoln Motor Company recently launched the next chapter in its Lincoln First Listen music series featuring singer, songwriter and multiple GRAMMY® award winner Ne-Yo. This sixth installment features the Revel sound system in the luxurious setting of the all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator as NE-YO discusses the inspiration for his new song “Good Man.”
“I’m excited to partner with Lincoln, a brand that is synonymous with style, class and luxury,” said Ne-Yo. “Through this showcase of the Lincoln Navigator, I hope to inspire good men everywhere who are balancing career, family and identity, while leading by example to show people what it is to be a good man.”
Lincoln Motor Company held the Lincoln Holiday Experience at the Célon Lounge inside of the swanky Bryant Park Hotel in NYC. 150 of NYC’s elite journalists, influencers, Lincoln owners and their guests enjoyed a private concert from Lincoln First Listen 6 and Grammy Award-winning artist, Ne-Yo. Dressed in a brown turtleneck underneath a checkered suit and his signature frames, Ne-Yo performed a 30-minute set that included all of his classic hits including, “So Sick,” “Miss Independent,” and “Because of You.”
But Ne-Yo didn’t seem to get sick of the crowd of fans who wanted to take photos with him; he relished the interaction he had with the avid supporters of his music.
Lincoln is committed to the arts and showcases that commitment through their Lincoln First Listen program, which highlights emerging and established artists and their music through the Revel sound system, available in Lincoln vehicles including the all new Lincoln Navigator and Aviator.
DJ D-Nice kept guests dancing the entire evening, while hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were enjoyed. The music was so good that the crowd couldn’t stop moving to the infectious beats.
Guests were also treated with a special preview of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator. The Lincoln Aviator takes luxury to new heights with its seven-seater design and 28 Revel speakers giving an unimaginable 3D audio experience.
Prior to attending the party, some of the journalists chopped it up at New York City’s Brooklyn Chop House, where a feast awaited us. Although some opted for Asian dishes, many opted for succulent steaks, lamb chops and mouthwatering appetizers. Once dinner concluded, we rode to our destination, checking out the amazing Lincoln Black Label Navigators while listening to sounds from Ne-Yo’s latest album.
