Do You Wanna Ride?

Other Negative Elements
Explicit sexual references abound-and that's just the songs' titles! Lines such as "We can pump, pump, pump all through the night" ("Freak Like Me") and "I'll be your Miss Bump-N-Grind/I just wanna do you tonight" ("Do You Wanna Ride?") pretty much tell this artist's story. On "My Up and Down," Howard takes pride in the fact that another woman's boyfriend repeatedly visits her for sexual favors ("If your girlfriend would do the freaky things I do for you . . ."). "You Got Me Humpin'" promotes unfaithfulness and oral sex. An insatiable woman pleads for sex on "Horny for Your Love" ("Seems I never get enough . . . Come and heal me with your touch"). Meanwhile, Howard gives an approving nod to marijuana with "You Can Be My N-gga," which speaks of "smoking blunts on the regular."
This raunchy Top-40 effort features slick production and smooth vocals, but is lyrically depraved. Nearly every track sounds like an encounter-group confession of sexual addiction-though Howard has no desire to amend her ways. Caution teens not to accept a Ride from this hormonally obsessed singer.
