Harry Potter made his debut, Titanic was in theaters, Nintendo 64 started cranking out games like Donkey Kong and Golden Eye, and nine year old me had a poster of Shania Twain on my bedroom door.
You know how hard it was to land that coveted bedroom door poster real estate? Pretty damn hard. Michael Jordan, Sammy Sosa, Shania Twain… we’re talking elite company here.
Why? Because 25 years ago today, Shania Twain dropped one of the best-selling albums of ALL TIME.
November 4th, 1997, Shania released Come On Over, featuring his singles like “Man! I Feel Like A Woman,” “You’re Still the One,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “Honey, I’m Home,” and more.
Heater after heater after heater.
Selling over 40 million copies, the album went on to be multi-Diamond Certified, good for the 9th best-selling record of all time, the best-selling album by a female artist, and best-selling studio album in country music history, the best selling album from a Canadian artist… the list goes on.
It was nominated for a ton of awards, produced three Grammy-winning singles, as well as many other award-winning songs… it was an absolute powerhouse of a record.
The album catapulted her into the upper echelons of music history, and followed up with a massive world your that took Shania across the globe, forever cementing her place as the Queen of Country Pop.
