Single Review: Samantha Harvey – ‘Forgive Forget’

Singer-songwriter Samantha Harvey has released her debut single, titled ‘Forgive Forget.’ Despite the single only being out for a few hours, it has already gained an excellent chart position.

The track showcases Samantha’s phenomenal vocal abilities but there is a strong message behind the lyrics. A situation may be forgiven, however, it may not be forgotten – the message being portrayed through the lyrics. It is rare to find a track that has such beautiful yet powerful and emotional lyrics. This truly showcases Samantha’s incredible talent as not only a singer but also a songwriter.

A few days prior to the release of the single, Samantha released an acoustic version of ‘Forgive Forget’ onto her YouTube channel. You can watch the video below:

Samantha Harvey has built up a name for herself through regularly posting covers of popular artists including Little Mix and Ed Sheeran. The release of her single provides fans with the opportunity to see what she has been working hard on, setting the precedent for the release of an EP or album potentially in the future.

Prior to the single’s release, Samantha recorded a live version of ‘Forgive Forget,’ as well as performing a medley of covers. When explaining ‘Forgive Forget’, she says:

‘I thought I’d sit on my bathroom floor and take it back to where I first started. Working full time and coming home to sing and upload a cover for you guys once every few months. These are the songs that you all made viral. I can’t thank you enough for your continued support for the last two years. From where I started sitting in my bathroom singing every now and then to it becoming my full time project is absolutely incredible and I couldn’t have done it without you. I know it’s been a long wait for you BUT tonight my first EVER single is being released at midnight. It’s called ‘Forgive Forget,’ so many of you have already pre-ordered the song, which is more than I ever wished. If we keep getting preorders tonight and then for you to stream it like crazy in the next week you could be seeing me in the Top 40 charts, hear me on your radios and see me on your TVs. This single could be what takes me from a cover artist to something that I’ve always wished of. So with your guys help this is possible. THANK YOU SO MUCH!’
