Singer songwriter and social media phenomenon Samantha Harvey is already taking 2018 by storm. Samantha released Please, her debut major label single last month and it shot straight to #2 on the iTunes chart. She followed with the launch of her EP of the same name and that also went straight to #1, topping the pre-order chart. Samantha now returns with the premiere of the video for Please which is live now on YouTube and VEVO. Directed by Meji Alabi, the video was shot in Sweden last month, and is the first visual taster of Samantha’s forthcoming EP.
Signed to VirginEMI UK and Capitol Records USA, Samantha is one of the most exciting new artists to emerge this year. Please, produced by Red Triangle, is about the yearning to reignite a lost love, and follows in the footsteps of Samantha’s self-released Forgive Forget, which debuted in the Top 3 of the iTunes chart last Summer. Please has already been added to some of Spotify’s biggest playlists including New Music Friday, The Pop List and Happy Pop Hits. It’s also been added to the Breaking Pop playlist on Apple Music and the Hot Singles & Pop Right Now playlists on Amazon Music.
To coincide with the launch of her EP, Samantha is starring in AwesomenessTV’s Samantha Harvey: Released, a 4-part docu series that charts her journey from Suffolk country girl and YouTube star to a transatlantic recording artist.
