"We Ride" was produced by Bryan Michael Cox and Jon Jon Traxx, written by Cox and Johnta Austin. The premise of the song is a celebration of her newfound happiness with husband and manager, Kendu Isaacs. The song contains the lyrics "from the day to the night we ride, I see the future, baby, you and I, better with time" and Cox stated "Mary's married, she's happy, in the best shape of her life, her voice is in the best shape of her life... people thought she was over, done, then she came through with The Breakthrough - "We Ride" celebrates all of that."
The music video for "We Ride" was shot in New York City in early November and directed by Erik White. and Costume Designed by June Ambrose, premiered on December 9, 2006 on MTV. The video opens up similar to the "Be Without You" music video, except it overlooks Los Angeles. Blige is singing in black with a black background then goes to her riding a blue bike. Another bike which is red and black appears which is Kendu. The two ride to the beach. From there it switches from Blige singing in a fur vest to Blige singing in a white dress in front of an orchestra, both on rocks on the beach, to the end of the video.
