Samantha Fox is the second full-length album from British model-turned-singer Samantha Fox. It was released by Jive in July 1987 and charted in the United Kingdom at number twenty-two, United States at fifty-one (gold), Canada at forty (platinum), Australia at eighty-six and Germany at sixteen.

After her first album went gold, Samantha returned to the studio to record her self-titled album. She enlisted help from producers and music group Full Force, who were helping Lisa Lisa at that time, to produce some of the songs on the album. This album combines rock with freestyle and pop. She had hits with "Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)", "Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now", a cover version of the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", "I Promise You (Get Ready)", "True Devotion", her first ballad song, and the rock song "I Surrender (To the Spirit of the Night)".
