ABOUT THE SONG
"Joy Ride" is a song that almost didn't make it on the record and I'm really glad that it did because the original track was produced by a fifteen year old named Young Genius. I think it's really cool to be fifteen and to have done that track is pretty amazing. Then there was this whole thing because he lost part of the track or something like that. We had to mix it to basically two tracks, not to be too technical. It's not the ultimate way to mix a record, but it really didn't matter because he had such a great sound and everything. It was so well done in the first place that I was happy just to mix the vocals and call it a day. It's a ballad and they call it the baby making song of the record. I don't use that terminology, but whatever. They can call it the baby making song if they want. AOL Music Commentary, April 22, 2005
