Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Gotta Tell You

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them very rarely that they can create a sense of nostalgic for you, the listener. So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


Gotta Tell You – Samantha Mumba

Today we look at a debut single by an Irish popstar who was a huge sensation in the early noughties. Gotta Tell You was released by Samantha Mumba on the 2nd June 2000. The single was written by Anders Bagge, Arnthor Birgisson and Samantha Mumba. It was produced by Anders and Arnthor as well. The song was released under the record labels Poldydor, Wildcard and Interscope (US).

The single was so popular that it is still known to this day as Samantha Mumba’s signature song. Gotta Tell You went into the top 10 in many countries including Australia (3), Denmark (8), France (9), Ireland (1), New Zealand (1) Scotland (5) and US Billboard (4) just to name a few. In the United Kingdom, the song went to number 2 and ended up becoming certified silver.

Out of all the Samantha Mumba songs, this is the most catchiest and definitely one that you will remember her for. I can still remember the times i used to listen to it.
