"The Ride" is a new music-driven series for VH1 following today's biggest artists as they reveal the most game-changing moments that "made them"— and transformed their lives-- culminating in the #1 most important moment that changed everything.
Every kid has a dream. But a dream alone doesn't get you there. Along life's journey a handful of pivotal moments shake you, shape you, and send your life in bold new directions. Chance meetings, heartbreak, or that breakthrough you thought may never come.
In this era of social media fans think they know everything about an artist. But they don't know the whole story. They don't even know the half of it.
Each episode of The Ride is one hour and gives the artist a platform to tell his or her own story—raw and unfiltered—directly to the camera. And it gives fans around the world an intimate peek inside their lives NOW—and THEN. These are an artist's most important events. They choose what to say, and how to say it.
Shot in an edgy, innovative style, The Ride takes viewers inside the artist's fast-paced, glamorous (and grueling) life on the road, in the studio, and behind the scenes, as we flash back to the events that got them here. As the artist recounts the events that transformed their lives, fans come away with a whole new appreciation for the artist they thought they knew so well.
There's nothing more powerful than an artist speaking their truth. The Ride gives today's most talented performers a direct link to fans to tell their story—like no one's ever heard before.
