Road Trip with Kehlani

For many, the car is a sacred, peaceful place to reset while on the road. That’s certainly true for Kehlani, the American singer, songwriter and dancer whose music has united fans around the world. Today, Kehlani brings their love for the journey to Waze.

Fans can join Kehlani for a ride that takes them up close and personal to the artist, as Kehlani reveals personal stories from the road, how they set the mood in the car and of course, what making music means to them.

“Growing up, listening to music in the car on road trips was my favorite way to connect to my thoughts,” Kehlani says. “I’m honored to partner with Waze and bring that same sense of peace to other drivers, wherever they are on their personal and physical journeys.”

​​To dive even deeper into the world of Kehlani, drivers can choose from two Moods that are inspired by Kehlani’s own music and road-trip musts. Flowing Mood, which encapsulates the emotion of their latest album, Blue Water Road, and the Captivating Mood, representing the camera Kehlani always keeps nearby. (You never know what you’ll discover on the road).

Hop into Kehlani’s signature vehicle, El Kehmino (inspired by their own ‘81 El Camino), and begin clearing your mind — one turn at a time.

To keep the party going in the car, Kehlani also curated a Spotify playlist that you can stream through the Waze Audio Player, for the ultimate mix of music to set the vibe while you ride together on Waze.

The experience on Waze launches June 6 and is available for a limited time with voice navigation in English. Visit Waze or tap “My Waze” in your app to find the “Drive with Kehlani” banner.

Drive back to the ‘70, ‘80s, and ‘90s

Is your affection for yesteryear rooted in the ‘70s disco movement, an ‘80s aerobics studio or ‘90s pop songs? For a drive back in time (and onwards to your next destination), activate Waze’s nostalgic new driving experience.

Retro Mode celebrates personalities and trends from the years most firmly cemented in today’s pop culture. Turn your next drive into a trip down memory lane with nostalgic moods, voices and cars.

Set your vibe on Waze to ‘70s peace, love and happiness with an eccentric radio DJ as your host and navigator, a flower-power “El Vanarino” as your vehicle and a groovy lava lamp Mood.

If Jazzercise is more your speed, break a sweat with an ‘80s aerobics instructor to guide your journey, while you maneuver in a Rad Racer sports car with a “Pumped!” boombox Mood.

Or you can head back to the ‘90s in your classic two-door “SUV4EVA” while a pop star helps you avoid traffic and the paparazzi. Set your Mood to “Dialed Up,” a classic desktop PC, but without the pain of waiting for your crush to sign online.

Also starting today, audio streaming service TuneIn is partnering with Waze to deliver ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s songs, allowing you to seamlessly access your favorite nostalgic bops directly via the Waze app. Stations include Hit Music 70’s in the UK, 90’s Hits in the US and Canada, and 80’s Alive in France. To listen through your Waze app make sure to sync your Audio Player.

For a drive that transports you to a new decade, click “My Waze” in your Waze app and tap the “Drive with the 80’s” banner to activate. It’s available globally, in English, French and Portuguese, for a limited time.

Drive with Christina Aguilera this March

This March marks the arrival of International Women’s Day around the world and Women’s History Month in the U.S. It’s a time to celebrate trailblazing women throughout history. From the suffragettes to the #MeToo movement, women continue to fight against gender bias, discrimination and stereotypes. To mark this occasion, we’re welcoming feminist advocate and musical icon Christina Aguilera to Waze.

Christina has a long history of advocating for women and underrepresented voices, using her platform to put them center stage in iconic songs and music videos — from “Beautiful” to “Let There Be Love” to “Can’t Hold Us Down.”

“International Women’s Day is a significant reminder that we are still fighting against gender bias and stereotypes,” Christina says. “Partnering with Waze has allowed me to unify my voice with a community of people who care about helping one another.”

Now, her messages of empowerment and self-love — and her Grammy-award winning voice — are on Waze to inspire the next generation of advocates.

Jump in the car with Christina

Christina takes fans on a journey through her life and work, from her “Genie in a Bottle” beginnings to her breakout as a fierce and liberated woman in “Stripped,” to her current hits like “Pa Mis Muchachas,” that draw from her Latin roots. Plus, she’ll share some advice she’s learned along the way — in both English and Spanish.

To get the full Xtina experience, choose from one of four Moods — Magical, Feisty, Sweet, or Strong — and drive in style in the Dirrty Bike or Pinkup Truck. You’ll be ready to take on whatever obstacles come your way, from potholes to traffic jams.

Sing your heart out to Christina’s favorites

In honor of International Women’s Day, Christina has also curated a Spotify playlist that you can stream through the Waze Audio Player (the caris one of Christina’s favorite places to sing). The playlist is full of powerhouse women, including up-and-coming artists who are inspiring Christina today, and selections from her own library of belt-it-out hits.

The experience on Waze launched March 1 and is available for a limited time with voice navigation in English and Spanish. Visit Waze or tap “My Waze” in your app and find the “Drive with Christina Aguilera” banner. And don’t forget to start streaming the Spotify playlist.
