"Like Me" premiered on Yahoo.com on April 23, 2008. The video won "Most Watched video at MMVA.com", with Stupid Shit coming in second place[5]

Versions

There are two different versions of the song. There is the iTunes version (which is the version where a snippet of the song was leaked) & there is the album version (a.k.a. the video version). The iTunes version is an early version of the song where the vocals are different (for example Chrystina's vocals). Instead of "you know I'm fly (know I'm fly)" (during Nichole's part) it's "you know I'm fly-fly". There is also background vocals when Tiffanie's part comes up. During live performances, they do a dance break.

Since Tiffanie's departure, Chrystina performs her part of the bridge and melismatic vocals[6].
