The single also received great support from Apple Music, where it was added to their New Music Daily and Breaking Pop playlists.


Samantha has said of the single, “Get To Know You is about the excitement of meeting someone that you really like and wanting to learn everything about them. The process of finding out about the person you’re interested in is beautiful, it's intriguing, interesting and means you become best friends as well as lovers. I wanted to release a real feel good song that will stay in your head all day long, a song that people will want to put on over and over again and belt out in the car!” Watch the video here.
