With the recent success of her UNSUNG episode, it was only right that we take a chance to get caught up on all things Adina Howard.
After shooting to the top of the charts in the mid 90’s, Adina is a name that has crossed generations as “Freak Like Me” remains in rotation at some of the hottest parties, clubs, and industry mixers.
Serving hot sex on a platter, sultry singer Adina Howard became a star in the mid-1990s with the chart topping hit “Freak Like Me.” More than a party anthem, it was a transformative song that let the world know women loved sex and wanted it when they wanted it. And it was about their desires, not their men’s. Almost overnight, Howard became an outspoken leader for female empowerment. But success came at a price. Since she didn’t write or produce most of her songs, she received little money from her gold debut and the platinum selling single. And after making some unsavory comments about the head of her record label, Howard was all but blackballed from the industry.
