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).
