Luxin’ It Up With @LincolnMotorCo At The ESSENCE Black Women In Music


I had a blast this weekend! I headed to Los Angeles on behalf of Lincoln Motor Co. to attend the ESSENCE’s Black Women In Music which they were the official automobile sponsor. I attended last year and had a great time and was excited about this year. Lincoln is all about great music and I was ready to hear all about their new Revel sound in their cars!

Thursday morning we had a great lunch with the Lincoln team and got a chance to meet the other ladies in attendance.

That evening, we headed to ESSENCE Black Women In Music. On the purple carpet at the celebration, they had the new Lincoln Continental and the MKZ. Yep, that’s right! Continentals are back!


I met many people on the red carpet and at the event including running into Yara Shahidi again and meeting Andy Allo while we chatted about curls!

Here is a peek of the new 2017 Lincoln Continental we got to see on the purple carpet:

17LincolnContinental_08_HRThis is going to be a great come back for the Continental. It’s very sleek!

  • Massaging chairs!?!? Like seriously, chairs that massage you and your guests while driving. I need this in life for my commute to and from work.
  • 360 Degree camera! Unfortunately I need this so I won’t run into the wall in my garage again….:sigh: lol! But yes for 360 degree cameras!!
  • This sun-roof has me super excited (I have a thing for sunroofs) A panoramic sunroof!?! Yaassss! I am totally here for this. This would be perfect in Atlanta!

The next day we got to explore the Lincoln Black Label automobiles, which includes different interior themes and also includes several luxury perks including access to fine dining restaurants all over the country. Sounds nice, huh!

I LOVE MKXs because they are the perfect size for someone like me who practically lives out her car and needs space and also likes to travel.


There was a very cool¬†experience ¬†where we got to check out the REVEL sound in the 2017 automobiles. I love music but don’t know too much about sound, but I do know when something sounds better than what I am used to. You could literally hear every instrument and there were speakers all over the car (or at least sounded like it lol) so it sounded like you were literally at a concert and front row! The sound was superb.
