Throwback: Samantha Fox-I Wanna Have Some Fun


“I Wanna Have Some Fun” is the title track from English singer Samantha Fox’s third album. Full Force wrote and produced the song with house, freestyle, and pop in its DNA. The New York City-based production team was also in the video played heavily on MTV. The simple message, the dance-oriented beats, and Fox’s relatable vocals made “I Wanna Have Some Fun” an infectious pop treat. Full Force had worked with Fox previously on “Naughty Girls Need Love Too” which charted even higher than “I Wanna Have Some Fun.” They were having a good time in the ’80s producing hits for Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Cheryl Pepsii Riley, UTFO, James Brown, and many other artists. Their repeat chemistry with Fox created another one of the most lasting songs from the decade. The album was re-released in 2009 with bonus tracks and a deluxe edition came out in 2012. Fox toured the United States in 2023 and appeared on Celebrity MasterChef
