Sophia George is a Jamaican singer. She is best known for her 1985 hit "Girlie Girlie", which reached number one in Jamaica, topping the RJR chart for 11 weeks, and was also a Top-10 hit in the UK. Her other Jamaican hits include "Lazy Body", "It Burn Mi Belly", and the duet "Ain't No Meaning"; all four songs appeared on her ten-song 1986 album, Fresh.

"Girlie Girlie" was written by Sangie Davis. At the time of its release, George was working as a teacher of deaf children. In the UK, George remains a one-hit wonder based on that song. The track was used as title music on Going Overboard, a movie featuring Adam Sandler.
