"Like Me" is the official debut single by the American pop group Girlicious. It was released to iTunes on April 22, 2008,[1] a day before the group was formed in the season finale of the reality television show Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious. Since Tiffanie's departure, Chrystina Sayers performs her part of the bridge and melismatic vocals.

Release[edit]

On iTunes, "Like Me" was released on April 22, 2008 one day prior to The CW's airing of the finale, allowing many fans to find out who won before the finale aired. A 1:30 preview of the song was released on their official website on April 22, 2008. On September 19, 2008 the single was sent to radio in India.

In addition, during the week of May 1, 2008, "Like Me" made a "Hot Shot Debut" at number four on the Canadian Hot 100 becoming an instant hit in Canada.[4]
