Pepsi’s Full of Detroit Soul initiative features local Detroit artists, makers, and organizations and celebrates both the unique individuals who make up the city and the community organizations that bring people together.
As part of Pepsi’s ongoing Full of Detroit Soul program, Queen Naija worked with the brand to develop the next phase of the platform: “I Am Full of Detroit Soul.” This campaign featured content from emerging Detroit artists on the landing page and invited fans to become a part of the campaign itself by voting for their favorite artist. The fan-favorite artist (Jahz Watts) performed as the opening act for an exclusive, geofenced livestream show starring Detroit native and break-out star Queen Naija.
Fans interacted with social content, voted for their favorite emerging artist, and registered to watch the show. Even after the campaign is over, fans of all of the artist finalists will remember that Pepsi amplified the voices of their favorite artists and possibly even introduced them to new favorites
