"Ride for You" is a ballad written by Bryan Michael Cox, Kendrick "Wyldcard" Dean, and Adonis Stropshire for Danity Kane's debut album Danity Kane (2006). Co-produced by Cox and Wyldcard, it was released as the album's second single in fall 2006 (see 2006 in music). The song peaked at number 78 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Release[edit]

"Ride for You" was shown on a Making The Band 3 episode. It was shown that Aubrey had trouble during the recording process. It also showed Aundrea having relationship problems, which ultimately led to her breaking up with her longtime boyfriend. The week that the album was released, "Ride for You" made it onto the charts from downloads at #78. "Ride for You" was chosen at the second single through fan voting polls. The single has not had the success that their previous single "Show Stopper" had. However this could partly be due to the lack of promotion.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Ride for You" was directed by Marcus Raboy, and was filmed in various locations throughout Los Angeles, California on November 3, 2006. The edited video debuted on Total Request Live on December 5, 2006.

Thematically, the video deals with the four seasons. It begins with Aundrea Fimbres leaving her home in a summer vignette. After singing her verse, Fimbres enters fall and joins Aubrey O'Day for a walk through the chorus. During Dawn Richard's verse, Fimbres and O'Day leave fall behind and join Richard under an umbrella on a late fall/early winter city street. The three of them then enter winter where they find Shannon Bex and D. Woods. The five of them sing the chorus and enter spring right as D. Wood's verse starts. At the end of the video, when D. Woods does her final note, the five women of Danity Kane meet up with their men and the video ends with beauty shots of each of the girls. The video has peaked at #5 on TRL which is a little lower than their past video Show Stopper, which peaked at #2.

Prior to its release, a behind the scenes segment aired video snippets of Shannon doing ballet dancing. Many fans were upset that the final video, however showed none.
