British female artist to score three Top Ten hits on both sides of the Atlantic
in the 1980s, Samantha Fox made her name as the nation’s favourite Page Three
girl before launching an enviable music career. The anthemic "Touch Me (I
Want Your Body)" became a global chart-topper in 1986 and was followed by
a succession of hits, including several collaborations with both the legendary
Stock Aitken Waterman and US hip-hop pioneers Full Force. Samantha remains a
household name, with a new album planned for 2012 and live dates across Europe.
"Samantha Fox" coincides with
accompanying Deluxe Editions of Sam’s other three Jive albums: 1986’s "Touch
Me", 1989’s "I Wanna Have Some Fun" and 1991’s "Just One
Night", and follows many other popular PWL-related reissues on Cherry Pop
from artists such as Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, Boy Krazy,
Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O’chi Brown.
"Fox's self-titled second album was huge, spinning off five chart entries in the UK and spawning the biggest of her six US hits via Naughty Girls (Need Love Too), on which Fox raps alongside then hot hip-hoppers Full Force". Music Week, 03/08/12
