After five weeks on the margins of the Urban radio charts, Ace Hood’s second single, Ride, moved up five spots last week to #25. Since there aren’t hard and fast rules regarding the appropriate time to capitalize off of sudden chart success, Hood and his label decided that now was a great time to unleash an equally radio-ready remix. Over incredibly catchy production work from upstarts The Inkredibles, Trey Songz is replaced by T-Pain on the hook (who got the better end of that trade?), Def Jam labelmates Rick Ross and Juelz Santana each contribute a verse apiece, and Hood adds two newly-spit sets of 16. Despite being delayed three times since August, the Floridian is set to drop his 14-track debut album, Gutta, on November 18.
