A Girl like Me Album is by Rihanna, the Barbadian singer, songwriter and actress.
Her second studio album was released on the 10th of April 2006 under the record label Def Jam Recordings.
The album gained mixed reviews in the music press, some praised Rihanna for avoiding the usual disappointment that a second album usually brings, while others compared it to her previous offering, Music of the Sun, which was released less than eight months earlier.
Unlike Rihanna’s debut album which was more R&B focused with elements of dance-pop and Caribbean music, the A Girl like Me album became more of a musical experiment incorporating elements of rock.
Commercially the album fared better than her debut. In the United States, it peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200, spending 45 weeks on the chart there.
In the United Kingdom, the A Girl like Me album entered the UK Albums Chart on the 6th of May 2006 and peaked at number 5. It spent 9 weeks in the Top 10 and 43 weeks on the Top 100.
It also reached the Top 10 in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Czech Republic, Ireland, Switzerl and Mexico.
Stand out tracks are ” Final Goodbye “, ” A Million Miles Away ” and ” SOS “, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, making it Rihanna’s first chart-topping single in the country. In the UK it peaked at number 2.
If you have Rihanna’s debut album, Music of the Sun, want to explore the singer’s work or need something to play on your stereo to liven up your day, then the A Girl like Me album is definitely one for your CD collection.
