"I'm Right Here" is a song by Irish singer Samantha Mumba, the first single release from her aborted second album Woman (2002). The single had poor sales, despite reaching number 3 in the UK, and flopped on the US Billboard Hot 100 but reached number 24 on the US Dance Chart. The poor performance of this single is believed to be the main reason why the release of her second album Woman was cancelled. Her manager, Louis Walsh, originally wanted her to record a song titled "Sound of the Underground", but she opted for this instead. The song later became a massive hit for girl group Girls Aloud.

Music video[edit]

The video for "I'm Right Here" (directed by Darren Grant), features Samantha and a group of girls in fireman-type outfits hosing down unfaithful men with a fire hose riding in a firetruck. Jamaican DeeJay Damian Marley, son of famous reggae star Bob Marley, and dancer Cris Judd are featured in the video.
