Samantha Mumba – Woman

12 Dec

“Woman” is the shelved sophomore album by Irish singer/songwriter Samantha Mumba. It was supposed to be released in 2002 via Polydor Records following her UK top 10 single “I’m Right Here.” However, Mumba has since confirmed she was unable to release any new material due to contract restrictions following the restructure of Polydor, which resulted in her being dropped.

On the follow-up to 2000’s “Gotta Tell You,” Mumba has worked with producers Bloodshy & Avant (Madonna, Britney Spears), Arnthor Birggisson (Christina Milian, Leona Lewis), Anders Bagge (Robyn, Jessica Simpson), Stargate (Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez) and Mark Taylor (Enrique Iglesias, Kylie Minogue).

Among the songwriters she has collaborated with on the album are Kandi Burruss (TLC, Destiny’s Child), Nina Woodford (Alesha Dixon, Nelly Furtado), Karen Poole (David Guetta, Janet Jackson), Michelle Bell (Blu Cantrell, Mary J. Blige) and Paul Barry (LeAnn Rimes, James Bay).

Canadian singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen has recorded new material with Miike Snow’s Pontus Winnberg.

The Swedish hitmaker recently helmed “Love is What You Want” and “Do-Si-Do,” taken from Peter Bjorn and John’s latest album “Breakin’ Point,” now available via INGRID / Kobalt / Warner Sweden.

As one-half of Bloodshy & Avant, Winnberg co-wrote and produced songs for Britney Spears (“Toxic”), Christina Milian (“AM to PM”), Kylie Minogue (“Speakerphone”) and Madonna (“Like It or Not”).

Meanwhile, Jepsen is expected to release her fourth studio collection – featuring further contributions from Noonie Bao and Patrik Berger – later this year through School Boy Records and Interscope Records.

The still-untitled project serves as the follow-up to 2015’s “E.MO.TION,” which peaked to number sixteen on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned singles including “I Really Like You” and “Run Away With Me.”
