Ride With Me

Album: Ride With Me (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Baha Men, famous for their 2000 hit "Who Let The Dogs Out," signed a deal with Sony Records in 2014 and released the album Ride With Me the following year - their first since 2004 (Holla!).

    The title track sounds like a tourism spot for their native Bahamas, and in some ways, it is. "'Ride With Me' is how we would approach all our guests from foreign lands and our friends that we'd meet along the way," lead singer Rik Carey told us. "They always have a bunch of questions to ask about this country because all they see is the beauty - the sun, sea and sand - but really you've got to get to know the people too. That's why we did that song. The focus was trying to get people involved and aware that there are 700 islands, including keys, out there. It's not just about Nassau, it's not about Freeport, there's so many islands you can visit."
