R3HAB is back with another dance floor banger, this time he’s re-imagined Ginuwine’s 1996 debut classic “My Pony.” Built around the vocal hook of the original, R3HAB’s version of “My Pony” is a more brooding version of the boastful classic. Regardless of the more subdued lyrics, this song will have you dancing well into the night hours. And if you grew up with TRL like me, you’ve known these lyrics forever.
If you want it, let’s do it.
Ride it, my pony
My saddle’s waiting
Come on, jump on it
The track opens with some airy synths along with light pads. This version has lyrics that are way more palatable to a dance track. After the intro, the light pads give way to rumbling bass and more tempo. After that comes the familiar refrain as the bass and some synths build up in the background. The drop is groovy, but a little forlorn too, with a low droning horn synth. This all repeats for one more go-round. Here’s what R3HAB had to say about “My Pony.”
“I’m constantly experimenting with different styles and sounds. ‘My Pony’ is a bit more bass-driven and laid back than my catalog so far, and I’m excited for the variety it brings. This record has been a long time coming, and I’m glad to finally share it. I’m sure ‘My Pony’ will lift moods in the blink of an eye, and I can’t wait to play it live.”
