Bonus material: Ciara featuring Bei Maejor & André 3000 - Ride (Remix)

Bonus material: Janelle Monáe featuring B.o.B & Lupe Fiasco - Tightrope (Wondamix)
With "Ride" doing un-big things on the charts, we now have a remix featuring André 3000 and Bei Major. The song is a throwback to Ciara's "1, 2 step" and "Get up" vibe - servicing those who feel the original might be a bit too too R&B.

I don't like it. Ciara obviously doesn't mind rappers disrespecting her in songs. Luda referred to her as a thoroughbred on the original version of "Ride" and Bei Major calls her a porn star in the remix. Then again when you're pussy popping in leggings and pretty much f**king the floor in a music video, I guess the respect ship is already setting sail.

I love the beat on "Ride", but the song in general is just Meh! It's not blowing up how Ciara really needs it to. And at this rate I can see Jive pulling a "Go girl" and making like "Ride" wasn't an official lead single and going with something else. I don't know what it's going to take for Ciara to catch an explosive hit to preceed an album. She's probably going to have to jump on the bandwagon loaded with chicks who can't sing, BB message Dr. Luke, and ask for "ATL gurls" which would essentially be "Tik tok" featuring Luda. I'd roll with it if it was hot.
