‘Receiving this thoughtful gift is so special to me. This is a book of notes from my Mum. She was so optimistic and positive and it has been such a timely reminder to be thankful for everything I have,’ she continued.

Samantha added: ‘Making this part of my daily ritual to read one of these note. Thank you to my beautiful sister for the most thoughtful gift.’

Jacqui tragically died in 2014, four months after she was diagnosed with cancer.

This comes after Samantha claimed her career could have been far more fruitful if it weren’t for her former rival Britney Spears.

Speaking to Nova’s How to… Life podcast, Samantha revealed that she and Britney were once in direct competition after they were both signed to the same music label – Jive Records.

Samantha was just 16-years-old at the time, having just relocated from Australia to Los Angeles in search of fame.

‘I am such a huge Britney fan. Like, I love her. But we were signed to the same label,’ the Bounce singer began.

‘So at the time, she was kind of my competitor….which is so weird to say, because it’s like, “Britney? What, how are you that close to her?”‘ she continued.

The Firestarter songstress went on to explain that she and Britney even had the same marketing team and artistic development coaches.

However, Samantha’s dreams soon turned to nightmares when the record label shifted its focus to enhancing Britney’s career over hers.

‘[The record label] basically said, “We’re going to either put all of our eggs into Britney’s basket, and you are going to have to be kind of shelved for a year (meaning that all the music you write is going to be old by then)… or [we’re not going to] work on your project”,’ Samantha said.

The singer decided to leave Jive Records and look elsewhere for a better deal.
