Lead singles get remixes. That’s the way the game works, especially if that lead single winds up getting some serious press for being banned on BET. And so today we have Ciara grabbing producer Bei Maejor and the elusive Andre 3000 for the Bei Maejor Remix to her DJ Booth-featured single Ride. True, Maejor sneaks in a verse to lead into Ciara’s seductive vocals, but let’s be honest; the only rhymes we’re really interested in hearing belong to Mr. Benjamin. Over some booming bass crafted by Maejor (similar to Ghost Town DJs’ My Boo), 3 Stacks lays down some lyrical game equating Ciara to “Chaka Khan fine, Anita Baker sweet.” The man could go in a hyperbolic chamber and still come out light-years ahead of whoever’s competing with him. While Ciara’s new album Basic Instinct may not have a set release date, hopefully radio will eat up this remix as viewers keep clamoring to see the video to the original. You can ban a sexy ATLien, but you can’t stop her.
