The Queen Samantha was a 1970s disco artist produced by the Parisian musician Harry Chalkitis. Gloria Brooks, a singer from Chicago, was the lead vocalist on many of their recordings. All of their songs were co-written by Chalkitis and his wife Myriam (except a charting cover version of "The Letter" (originally by The Box Tops)). Chalkitis recorded the tracks while living in Paris, and the records were released on Atoll Records a French label. In the USA the records were released by Henry Stone's Marlin label.

The group's biggest hit was "Mama Rue," a 1970s' classic. Their single "Take A Chance" backed with "Sweet San Francisco" was released on TK Records and remixed by Steve Thompson and Michael Arato. Other charting singles include 1980's "Funky Celebration"; 1982's "Give Me Action"; and 1983's "Close Your Eyes" on California's Megatone label.
