Come On Over

Come On Over

When Shania Twain released her third album Come On Over in 1997, the Canadian singer-songwriter’s star was already swiftly on the rise. The Woman in Me, which came out two years prior, produced the breakthrough hits “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” and “Any Man of Mine,” smashing sales records and setting the stage for Twain to be one of the genre’s next great superstars. Come On Over did exactly that, establishing Twain not just as one of country’s biggest acts but as one of its greatest crossover successes, too. Introduced by lead single “Love Gets Me Every Time,” Come On Over produced an unheard-of 12 singles over the course of its promotion, three of which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. It’s certified 2x Diamond in the United States and has sold millions of copies worldwide, making Come On Over, according to Guinness World Records, the world’s highest-selling album by a female solo artist. Those stats are impressive, to be sure—and there are plenty more where those came from—but it’s the groundbreaking fusion of country and pop that made the album an instant smash, one that continues to have a lasting impact 25 years later. Opening track “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” has transcended mere single status to a globally beloved anthem, embraced by anyone looking to tap into some feisty feminine energy. Two-time Grammy-winning “You’re Still the One” is a modern romantic standard, even if its subject, album producer and Twain’s ex-husband Mutt Lange, is no longer in the picture and no longer still the one. “That Don’t Impress Me Much” is all sass and swagger, with a still-iconic call-out to Brad Pitt (sorry, Brad). Yet those tracks merely scratch the surface of what makes Come On Over a classic. Twain’s voice was at its finest, with the dynamic sequencing offering her ample opportunity to show off the subtleties of her range, whether it’s an empowering belt or a vulnerable quaver. Lange’s production drew fearlessly from pop, rock, and even dance music, keeping country as a through line but one loose enough to make space for Twain’s kaleidoscopic sonic vision. While Come On Over is one landmark album within a legendary career, the album and Twain herself are widely cited as an influence by artists of all stripes, including Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Brittney Spencer, Maren Morris, and Caitlin Rose. That legacy is celebrated with three tracks exclusive to Apple Music, on which Elton John and Chris Martin each join Twain on separate, live versions of “You’re Still the One” while Nick Jonas duets on “Party for Two.”
