Samantha Mumba January 10, 2008

As I’ve written in many posts, I was a huge fan of the teen pop scene in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, so I pretty much have almost every pop act programed in my long term memory. One singer I really liked was Ireland native Samantha Mumba, www.myspace.com/samanthamumba . Samantha was posed to be “the Black Britney”, and her first single off , “Gotta Tell You” (which is also the title of her first album) was a hit in the U.K. as well as the U.S. She followed with her second hit  “Baby Come On Over (This is Our Night)” in the U.S., and had a string of other hits in the U.K. However, when she released her second single, “I’m Right Here” (featuring Damien Marleyand a cameo by J.Lo’s ex-husband Cris Judd) off her sophomore album “Woman”, it failed to match the same success as Gotta Tell You (both the single and the album). Afterwards, she starred in a couple of movies, including “The Time Machine” (directed by Steven Speilberg) Now, she is going to be on Dancing on Ice in England (think Dancing with the Stars, but on ice). Be sure to check out her myspace page: www.myspace.com/samanthamumba as well as : Dancing on Ice’s website http://www.itv.com/Entertainment/reality/dancingonice/default.html for the latest news and to show Samantha some support!!!!
