We Gon Ride

Album: No Hard Feelings (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This Southside-produced track features a verse from Gucci Mane. Asked by Billboard magazine how she hooked up with the Atlanta rapper, Dreezy replied: "Just by knowing the right people, we were able to get the track to him. The track was already done. We sent it to him and he was like, 'Man, I'm finna go crazy on the record.' And that's exactly what he did. He sent it back within a week."
  • Gucci also did the treatment for the song's music video as well as picking the jewelery store where it was shot. Dreezy recalled: "I was like, 'Is this your favorite jewelry store?' and he was like, 'Hell nah. I'll buy this jewelry store.' [Laughs] It felt good. That was one of the best days I had in Atlanta."
