Suffolk singer and YouTube sensation Samantha Harvey is releasing her first single since signing for a major record label – and it goes on pre-order at midnight tomorrow night.

The 24-year-old from Hitcham near Stowmarket has enjoyed a whirlwind journey this year having worked as a full-time cleaner just 10 months ago.

In July last year she released her debut single Forgive Forget, which entered the iTunes chart at number four.

Samantha is now preparing to hit the charts again having announced the release of her new single Please on her Facebook page on Sunday.

It will be her first single since signing to the Virgin EMI UK and Capital USA record labels.
