ciara ride premiere Ciara Set To Ride Next Monday

According to ever-reliable, R&B star Ciara‘s brand new single ‘Ride’ will première on US radio this coming Monday (April 12th). The Ludacris-assisted cut will be the first offering from the singer’s fourth studio album, which is tentatively set for an early Summer release.
