Ride (2010)

Type :    


"Ride" is a song performed by American recording artist Ciara. The song features American rapper Ludacris. It was co-written by Ciara, Ludacris, Tricky Stewart, and The-Dream, and produced by the latter two. The song serves as the lead single from her fourth studio album, Basic Instinct. The song was first released for digital download on April 26, 2010. "Ride" is a down-tempo R&B song, featuring a heavy bass line and seductive tone.

The song received generally positive reviews from critics, complimenting the song's toned-down production. It reached three on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in the United States, becoming Ciara's twelfth top ten hit on the chart. The accompanying music video features sexually-charged, provocative choreography, and therefore was not aired on BET, and banned from UK music channels. The official remix features André 3000 and Bei Maejor in addition to Ludacris.


Jive Records spoke exclusively to Rap Up magazine on March 29, 2010 to confirm that Ciara would be releasing a new song called "Ride" featuring Ludacris. It is the fourth time that the two stars have collaborated: the first being 2005's "Oh", second being 2009's "High Price" and the third being the 2010 remix to Ludacris' single "How Low".

The song's official remix features Outkast's André 3000, Bei Maejor and Ludacris. Ciara told MTV News that it was "cool" for André 3000 to respond and get on the record, as the rapper is reclusive when he and Outkast are on break, and selective when it comes to features. Ciara said, ""My team actually kind of helped put that together. My A&R Barry Weiss, they kinda worked it out." Ciara also confirmed she 3000 were supposed to collaborate before, commenting: "When I was doing [2006's] Evolution, I wanted him to do something with me, and we never got to do anything. It's just really great timing now that we get to do something. My fans are getting an unexpected treat with it. He is, from what I understand, very selective and ... protective of his creativity, so it just feels really good to be able to rock with him." The remix was released on June 29, 2010 as a digital download.

The song has a slow-tempo and "sensual" feel, backed by a simple bass line and "shimmery" synths, with beats described as "smooth", "heavy" and "dragged out." Ciara's lyrics have been said to be delivered "sultry" and "seductively." Ludacris's flow has been described as "hypnotizing", delivering one of his "trademark rhyme-filled" verses. Although the lyrics are technically referring to how one "rides" the beat to a song, but hints at subtle clues of sex.
