The song "Freak Like Me", as well as Howard's image, can be described as hyper-sexual. It can be said that she opened the door for female rap artists to incorporate sexually explicit material into their works in the future.
A second album, Welcome to Fantasy Island garnered a couple critical raves, but was shelved by Elektra Records in 1997, due to their decision that the album 'did not contain any other singles'. In 2003, news of her third album hit with various album title changes throughout the year from "Ride Again: 7/2" to "Two Can Play That Game". During this year, she also filmed an independent film called Casanova's Demise co-starring Greg Horos. By 2004, Howard officially released her third album (now called The Second Coming) under Rufftown Records.
With the distribution label and the record label in conflict, the album suffered without any publicity and a video "Nasty Grind" played on BET during early morning hours. Even with the lack of publicity, it gathered over 40,000 units on store shelves. The year 2005, was to be the release of The Second Coming: Remixed but that project was shelved to make way for a new full-length album, Private Show. Along with a new album, Howard worked with Walid Azami to bring documentaries for her fansite. ...show less
