Collaborating with the-Dream on the Fantasy Ride track "Like a Surgeon" developed into Ciara's fourth album, Basic Instinct. Executive produced by the-Dream alongside partner Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, the album is led by a trio of bases-covering singles: the sleek and seductive "Ride" (featuring Ludacris), the relentless club track "Gimme Dat," and the sweet ballad "Speechless."
