Through Música Ford (and Ford Music), Ford partners with the best musicians from across the country, showing a bit of their lives and featuring the music that drives them to go further. This Música Ford campaign is a continuation of a long-standing, successful relationship between MAX and Ford–and marks the second time that Eslabon Armado has partnered with Ford!
Música Ford’s program success starts with finding the right artist partner to meet each campaign’s specific needs and who are a good fit with Ford’s brand personality. Back in 2022, our team identified Eslabon Armado as the perfect artist partner to help Ford drive awareness and consideration with Hispanic audiences based on several audience attributes and their affinity for Ford.
Since that last Música Ford campaign, Eslabon Armado has exploded in popularity with the band breaking records, winning awards, and making history. Building off of the success of the previous campaign, we extended the partnership with Eslabon Armado, creating a Música Ford campaign that celebrates the band’s recent accomplishments and lets Ford continue to be a big part of their artist journey.
Thanks to our amazing MAX artist team, Ford’s relationship with Eslabon Armado began when they were emerging artists and has continued as they top Billboard charts and change the face of the music industry.
