Gotta Tell You is the debut and only studio album by Irish singer Samantha Mumba. It was released on 31 October 2000 in the United Kingdom and the United States by Polydor Records, Interscope Records, Wildcard Records and A&M Records.

History[edit]

On 27 March 2001,[4] the album was re-released with a new cover and an altered track listing in the United States. A similar reissue was released in the UK on 17 September 2001.[5] Some of the songs were remixed or edited for the reissue. There are also several song title variations between the different editions. "Baby Come On Over" is known as "Baby Come Over" on the first U.S. pressing, with the remix retitled as "Baby, Come Over (This Is Our Night)" on the U.S. reissue. "Til The Night Becomes the Day" was changed to "'Til Night Becomes Day" on the original U.S. release, and the track "Don't Need You To Tell Me I'm Pretty" is referred to as "I Don't Need You To" in Europe and Japan.
