STATES CHRONICLE – Shania Twain was the first artist back in the 90’s who made the bold move to fusion country-style music with the MTV culture. The result was an unexpected success of this genre among young, rebellious audience. The Woman in Me sold nine million copies in the U.S. After 15 years of going off radars, Twain returns with an incendiary new album called Now that has already dethroned modern pop stars in the charts.
Shania Twain’s New Album Now Outshined New Pop Icons Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato
Shania Twain’s Now recorded 137,000 sales in the first week since its release. One of the results of such an explosive musical phenomenon was to earn the top place in Billboard 200 in the U.S. The last time Shania Twain recorded such a performance was in 2002 thanks to her previous studio album, Up!.
Even though the absence from glamorous stages counted for a decade and a half, the 52-year-old country singer proved she was born to be a star. Shania Twain managed to make her way to Number One with a quite surprising ease. This achievement meant for the returned star to dethrone icons of the new music direction such as Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato with one shot. The former gained a strong enough momentum to even start a ‘raw’ look featuring underarm hair.
The Brand-New Studio Hits Persevered the Same Unique Country-Pop Style as 15 Years Ago
During her 15-year hiatus, Twain was far from being inactive. She took part in several TV shows, including American Idol and her own reality show entitled Why Not? With Shania Twain.
On top of that, she launched new flagship fragrance Shania by Stetson that was followed by Shania Starlight in September 2007. The artist was present even in the 2010 Olympic Games opening ceremony. She was the one who carried the Olympic Torch in her hometown Windsor, Ontario.
The positive acclaim that Shania Twain’s new album enjoyed proves that the artist still has a lot of fans. She was the one who pioneered the country-pop genre through hits such as “That Don’t Impress Me Much” or “You’re Still the One.” The brand-new studio hits titled “Life’s About to Get Good” and “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed” preserved Shania’s unique signature.
