    "Baby, Come Over (This Is Our Night)" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award For Best Remixed Recording.
    Samantha Mumba is ostensibly an R&B singer, but a close inspection of her debut disc GOTTA TELL YOU reveals some ideas that extend beyond generic R&B production. "Body II Body" is constructed around samples from David Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes," and there's talk of "biorythms" and "spiritual attraction" amid the overwhelming carnality. "Baby Come Over" is pure pop, with a well-honed hook that could have come straight off a Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera album. "Lately" contains some undeniable gospel overtones, as well as orchestral backing. At the same time, there's plenty of solid R&B to found here, but there's enough stylistic variety to keep things from ever getting too monochromatic.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (12/00, pp.127-8) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...As stylish R&B/pop blend as her debut single 'Gotta Tell U' is, it's Mumba's deep old-soul voice that helped it top the Irish charts for 5 weeks..."
    NME (Magazine) (11/11/00, p.34) - 6 out of 10 - "...Brilliant pop-soul swagger...grooming a Britney-meets-Blige automation....a potential superstar..."
