20 Years Ago: Shania Twain’s ‘The Woman in Me’ Goes Platinum

By Gayle Thompson | June 22, 2015 10:00 AM

Twenty years ago today (June 22, 1995) was a pivotal day for Shania Twain. It was on this day that the singer earned her first platinum album (1 million sold) with her sophomore record, The Woman in Me.

The project, which was released the previous February, followed her eponymous debut disc. But it was The Woman in Me that shot Twain to superstar status: She earned four No. 1 songs from the record — “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” — and the first single, “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” became Twain’s first Top 20 hit. It’s also the song that she credits with jump-starting her career.

“”Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” was a song that I had already started …” Twain tells CMT. “My grandmother used to have this saying about cookie crumbs in bed or something like that. Some silly saying that goes back to who knows when. But somehow I made “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” basically about cheating, and I thought it would make a cute little title … It ended up being one of the biggest songs I’ve ever had.”

The Woman in Me, which has sold more than 12 million copies in the United States alone since its release, was produced by Twain’s then-husband, Robert “Mutt” Lange, whom she wed in 1993. The two co-wrote 10 of the disc’s 12 tracks; Lange wrote “You Win My Love” by himself, while Twain wrote “Leaving Is the Only Way Out” solo.

Twain received her first Grammy Award for The Woman in Me, for Best Country Album, as well as an ACM Award for Album of the Year.

Remember When Shania Twain Made History With ‘The Woman in Me’?

By Sterling Whitaker | Taste of Country | November 17, 2017

Shania Twain was a little-known country artist before she released her second album, The Woman in Me, but not for long.

The Canadian singer-songwriter released her self-titled first album in 1993, but it was not a commercial success, never charting any higher than No. 67 and failing to score any hit singles. She changed her approach dramatically after meeting producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the producer behind Def Leppard, AC/DC and more. They collaborated for the songs on her second album, and Twain underwent a complete imaging overhaul to go along with the new songs, taking on an independent, empowered-woman persona for The Woman in Me, which was released in 1995.

The album was an immediate success, scoring Twain a No. 11 hit with its first single, "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under," and following up with her first No. 1 hit with "Any Man of Mine." Twain went on to score more hits with the title song, "(If You're Not in It for Love) I'm Outta Here!," "You Win My Love," "No One Needs to Know" and more, releasing a total of eight singles from the album. The Woman in Me catapulted Twain to worldwide success.

On Nov. 17, 1997, The Woman in Me was awarded diamond certification from the RIAA, making Twain the first female country artist to ever sell 10 million copies of a record. It's gone on to sell more than 20 million copies, and its massive success paved the way for Twain to become the best-selling female artist in country music history.

The follow-up to the album, 1997's Come on Over, sold more than 40 million copies, and it's still the best-selling album by a female artist of all time in any genre. Twain followed that with Up! in 2002, and following a break of 15 years, she released her most recent album, Now, in September of 2017. That album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

 For some reason Shania (or/and her team) tends to mix things up. Last year she wrote it was 5 years since Vegas CD/DVD release, but it was only 3.no

I wonder what Shania means in "If It Don't Take Two" by "two winds to be strong enough". Does she mean the second wind when running or actually wind as after that she sings about ships not being able to sail on a still day? Or something else?

First she sings "It takes two to go one way" then "Two winds to be strong enough". Then she sings about two ships on a sea of love. So it sounds like the "two winds" might be referring to two hearts or souls.
