Music: Naima Mclean Feat. Reason - Ride (Remix)

2014-08-13 16:25

In a nutshell: South African poet and soul singer, Naima Mcclean, is preparing to release her highly anticipated follow up album to her 2013 debut Things I Wish. Naima has already released the first single , Ride, for the new album but she got some help from local rapper Reason to give it another go.

What’s it like: Birds chirping a pop song! There's a constant chirp to the song that carries throughout the song. The remix is quite a departure from the original Ride. It has loads more layers and more dance beats. The result is a sound that better fits Reason but kind of relegates Naima to the role of back up vocals. Still, it's a good remix.

Fave Bit: The chorus where Naima sings "I wanna ride with you". It's nothing special at first listen but it grows on you until that's all you find yourself singing.

Rating: Although not immediately captivating, Ride enters that part of the brain that keeps you singing it all day. Beware! This song is catchy  3 /5
