Adina Howard (born November 14, 1974) is an American R&B and hip-hop singer-songwriter, best known for her 1995 single “Freak Like Me”, hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, U.S.

Singer-songwriter Adina Howard first came on the scene with the release of her debut album “Do You Wanna Ride?” in 1995. The platinum record propelled Howard to national stardom aided by the hugely popular single “Freak Like Me”. The heavily sexualised and provocative studio album peaked at No. 39 on the Billboard 200 aided by “Freak Like Me” and the subsequent singles “My Up and Down” and “It’s All About You”. Following the release Howard collaborated with Warren G to produce the single “What’s Love Got to Do with It” for the “Police Story 3: Super Cop” soundtrack, followed by a contribution to the “A Thin Line Between Love and Hate” soundtrack.

The singer’s sophomore album “Welcome to Fantasy Island” was led by the single “(Freak) And U Know It”, however was shelved by Elektra Records in 1997. A few years later the album was leaked onto the internet, and the track “T-Shirt & Panties” (featuring Jamie Foxx) found its way on the 1998 film “Woo” soundtrack and later released as a single. Howard subsequently released the studio album “The Second Coming” in 2004 after moving to Rufftown Records, led by the single “Nasty Grind”. The album didn’t sell well however, and plans to release a second single were dropped after Howard left the label shortly after the release.

An official mixtape “Let You Hit” followed in 2005 with a host of new songs, remixes and unreleased tracks. The full-length “Private Show” arrived in 2007 led by the singles “L.O.V.A”, “My Hips”, and “Tease”. Following the release the singer took a hiatus from music in which time she started her own restaurant and released her own cook book. Howard returned to music in 2015 with the release of her full-length “The Switch Up” led by the singles “Switch” and “Bad 4 Me”.
