The 90’s produced not only one of the greatest decades of R&B music, but also some of the most memorable artists our generation has ever seen, including Grand Rapids, Michigan native, International, Multi-Platinum, Award-winning R&B Icon Adina Howard.

 

1995 was a milestone year for Adina. Signed to Mecca Don/EastWest records, she struck certified gold and platinum with her no holds barred debut album “Do You Wanna Ride?” and her #2 Billboard Hot 100 single “Freak Like Me”. That year Adina Howard became a global household name.

 

Howard is revered as one of the early pioneers of sexual expressionism for women of color. Her mega-hits "Freak Like Me" and "T-shirt and Panties" were more than just chart-topping singles, they were anthems for the sexually liberated.
