A Girl like Me is the second studio album by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna. It was released through Def Jam Recordings on April 19, 2006 in Japan, on April 24 in the United Kingdom, and on April 25 in the United States. For the production of the album, Rihanna worked with Evan Rogers, Carl Sturken, Stargate and J. R. Rotem with label-mate Ne-Yowho wrote the album’s second single. A Girl like Me is a pop album influenced by Rihanna’s Caribbean roots, and features dancehall and R&B songs. It also incorporatesreggae elements and ballads, which music critics were ambivalent towards.
Some critics gave the album positive reviews stating that she gracefully avoids the sophomore disappointment while others compared the album to her previous effort.

A Girl like Me spawned four singles; « SOS », which became her first single to reach number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, « Unfaithful » and « Break It Off », both reaching the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100, however, the third single, « We Ride », failed to reprise the success of the previous singles. The album was re-released as an expanded double-disc deluxe package in Germany, which includes her previous hit single, « Pon de Replay ». The album has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America(RIAA).
