"Bumpy Ride" is a soca song by Swedish-Congolese R&B singer-songwriter Mohombi from his debut studio album, MoveMeant (2011).[1] It was released as his debut single in the United States on 24 August 2010. Written by RedOne, Bilal "The Chef" Hajji, AJ Junior, Moe Faisal, and Mohombi, and produced by RedOne, it is the first release on RedOne's label 2101 Records, a joint venture with Universal Music.[2][3] He also released a popular bilingual French/English version[4] for the Francophone markets. The song became a number-one hit in the Netherlands, and a top ten hit in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, and Sweden.

Critical reception[edit]

Paul Lester of The Guardian described the song as a "popped-up dancehall affair wherein Mohombi promises to "rock" the female subject of his affections "like a rodeo"."[5]
