World Premiere: “RIDE” – Ciara (Feat. Ludacris)

Recently appointed Givenchy go girl is back with a follow-up to last year’s flop, Fantasy Ride. With a thumping Tricky [Stewart] tune-up, she relinquishes her superhero shtick to re-up her signature ATL pride with help from writer, The-Dream. As the lead single off her upcoming Basic Instinct LP, “RIDE” more than readies her audience for a comeback with verses by long-time collaborator Ludacris and heavy trunk rattling chop’n’screw production. While it’s no Ci-Ci/Jazze Pha masterpiece (or even Lil’ Jon’s “Goodies“) and sounds like a demi-continuation of “Like A Surgeon” (also by The-Dream and Tricky), it’s a nice attempt at returning to her crunk’n roots. Saddle up because it also happens to be the perfect Summer track to practice your Ciara Matrix backspins to.
