“My Ride” acts as the fourth single off the album and third music video. Having already presented us with a club nightscape and a moving storyline, the guys switch it up for “My Ride” with a clean set, slick car, and their personalities and swag take the spotlight.

Commenting on the combined release of the album and video, The Bilz and Kashif explain…

The fans were just too eager to have the final album in their hands that we decided as a bonus, we’d also slap them with a brand new video. The single, “My Ride”, is about how intense a women’s persona and beauty can be. Her shape, her demeanor all alluring to an exotic car that you just want to ride. We felt it was the perfect summer anthem for everyone to get ready for The Trinity.
