Shania Twain was told early on in her career that she would be “hated by women.”
Shania Twain, let’s face it, is one of those singers whose music instantly puts everyone in a good mood. People can’t help but dance and sing along to Twain’s 90s hits like “Man! I Feel Like A Woman,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “You’re Still The One,” as they have the capacity to make anyone feel like they can run the world.
Twain’s honest nature was marked as a potential career crusher when she first started out, despite the fact that her empowering, feminist, and joyful songs made her the country-pop phenomenon she is today.
Shania Twain has always been unafraid to be herself.
When Twain (actual name Eilleen Regina Edwards) signed with Mercury Nashville Records in the early 1990s, she started working on her first album right away.
Her self-titled debut album was released in North America on April 20, 1993, and it helped her gain popularity outside of Canada. Despite receiving great reviews from critics, the album failed to sell a large number of copies at its initial release.
The singer met rock producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange in the same year, and he volunteered to produce and write songs with her after hearing her debut album. Twain’s second studio album, The Woman in Me, which officially put her on the map, was written and co-written by the two of them.
“Any Man of Mine,” (If You’re Not in It for Love) I’m Outta Here!”, “You Win My Love,” and “No One Needs to Know” are among the album’s successful singles.
The songs were country-pop perfection, as they featured not only honest and empowering lyrics, but also some of pop culture’s most famous music videos. To bystanders, it was evident that Twain wasn’t scared to be herself in the country music industry, which is notoriously conservative.
