As I said, a good song will promote itself.  


 So far so good, but it’s only been one day. 

 

WUD peaking at # 5 on all genre iTunes chart, and finally hitting # 1 on country genre!

About Shania Twain:
International superstar Shania Twain is a five-time GRAMMY winner and one of music’s most renowned trailblazers. With five albums released and more than 100 million albums sold worldwide, Twain remains the top-selling female country pop artist of all time. Her hits include “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “You’re Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!”. Shania was the first artist in history to release 3 consecutive diamond certified albums. Twain’s first album in 15 years, NOW, was released in September 2017 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums, making it the first female country release in over 3 years to top the all-genre chart. Additionally, the album landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country album charts and went to No. 1 in Canada, Australia and the UK. The release was followed by a year-long sold-out NOW World Tour. Twain is currently performing at her second residency in Vegas called “Let’s Go!”. The residency at the Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino kicked off with a sold out run and continues through 2022.  On July 26, Netflix released Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl, a brand-new, career-spanning documentary on Twain’s life and career with an accompanying Highlights album.  The Queen of Country Pop will return with new music this year.

Hmmm…. Maybe “Giddy Up” will be the second single to be released with the same producer and songwriters? We’ll see. WUD almost 500k views YouTube in just 2 days. 😊

Waking up dreaming is a good song, I just think the album has better music to come. I'm not sure about this new record label I don't seem much support coming from them. If she's not going to promote the music in North America it's gonna falls off the charts fast. Personally Not just a girl should have been the first single with a video. It has more country pop. Also how long ago was that music video shot? Sounds like either Shania was dropped or wanted a label who would let her release and do as she chooses. There has got to be a better promotion plan., We all know she's touring and she's already said this will be an upbeat album I just don't think she choose the right single.  Perhaps the second one will be better and she has a promotion plan, She will have to promote the album. I was thinking the CMA awards but that song wouldn't be the best pick to sing at an awards show. Has the single been sent to radio,? I have asked radio to play it and have called multiple stations in Canada. No response. A good song will do well on its own Tommy says? Perhaps but radio and promoting it will help too. I know Shania has big plans but she better start announcing them because this is her first single release in 5 years. Personally it's doing better than life's about to get good but we need radio or more promotion. Good morning America maybe the today show? I like the 🎵 I don't like the promotion. Especially where it ain't doing that bad in Canada and US because I am so far not liking the promotion from this new label. Start doing radio and TV interviews. She keeps saying this is just the beginning well announce it already. Should of released that single when the Netflix documentary came out. I'm a huge fan I don't get the process. I've sent 6 different people the song 1 liked the rest said it's to auto tuned. There was a song on Tiktok ages ago that should have been the single, It sounded amazing. Stop auto tuning her voice the deeper voice doesn't even sound bad. I am like I said not saying the song is bad I like it but why leave a record label you have done so well with all these years? I'm thinking she was dropped and found another label. That was the delay because it might have been to pop. Then when I think about it they make loot off of her old stuff and touring and stuff. I wished she kept Jason Owen as her manager. He always knew what to do and keep her on track. To go on a Radio show and say it's a pop song doesn't help her on country radio. I am hoping Canadian radio plays it. Usually she gets support on both pop and country here. All I am saying and I'll repeat it. Not just a girl should have been the first single with a music video. She didn't even sound auto tuned. Great song and great video? Song good Video could have been a little more too it. All her money she could definitely make a better music video. Remember you can't buy love on now? Listen to Waking up dreaming in the beginning. Sounds the same. Personally The Queen song with Mark Ralph should have been released as the first single or Not just a girl.  I am not disrespecting the Single just Personally it might of been the wrong choice. Perhaps a more country pop balled first then maybe Waking up dreaming later. I will admit one things it certainly is a good dance song Waking up dreaming. All you Shania fans on here start calling radio. I'm trying whatever station I can find. Also start giving your opinions on the song and whatever else. This is an open discussion group. Just be respectful as well all love Shania. I have 4 kids running around but said I need to speak how I feel as a fan. No disrespect to Shania I love her. I just feel some things aren't being promoted well. Canada? That's the one place she should be promoting it. It's doing well. Number 3 on the top 100 since Saturday.

I really disagree with you. From what I’ve seen an heard, the gp seems to like/love this song. Not just a Girl, upon first listen was a little bit underwhelming and I don’t think it would have faired off that great. That songs was meant for promo of the film only and never meant to be a single nor have a music video. This would definitely had been a poor choice as a first single. As for the queen song, I don’t think that would have done good as a first single either. She needed catchy and upbeat and that’s what she delivered with WUD. Queen Would have been too much of a different sound for her to release as a first single. I keep seeing comment all over about how WUD sounds like it could belong on Up if Up we’re release today. I also do a lot of mention that Not Just a Girl belongs on Now and a lot of people did not like the sound of now. As for WUD sounding like You Can’t Buy Love, I totally agree but thats just the beginning and I my first reaction was that it sounds like Footloose. As for promo, who really listens to the radio today? I don’t think radio really does much anymore, but that’s just me and the song was just released on Friday so there is still enough time for promo and I think she‘s better off saving her energy to promoting the album rather than the single.

 But did you notice?!? Shania sings "Up giddy giddy up" in the studio !! So Giddy Up is at least one song on the album. The poster in "WUD" is not insignificant.

Isaac Rentz @isaascrentz

The new video I directed for @shaniatwain came out on Friday. Thanks to everyone who brought this one together (I’ll add credits when I get a moment), especially @missymg and @isaacrice76 at @houndcontent and @harvglazer @rees.editor and of course @marcbouwer who designed the amazing costumes. I wrote this idea after watching Penelope Spheeris’s 1988 masterpiece The Decline of Western Civilization 2, and falling in love with the over-the-top costumes and performances. Shania really is amazing, and I’m so grateful that she went full glam with it and got all the way into character. And yes, that’s @katerentz taking actual photos in the photo shoot sequence.

So far it’s doing better on the itunes charts in some countries than “Life’s about to get good” did back in 2017. Also streamingwise in Canada it’s doing much better.

Realistically it won’t be a top 40 song in many countries. But I think she can be proud if it charts in the billboard 200, billboard country top 50 (if this song qualifies for that genre?), UK top 100 and Canadian top 40. Likely it will also chart in Ireland and Australia.

Sure I already said AC radio would play her music. They even played lifes about to get good. I really do believe there are much better songs on the new album, I think the album will do well. I don't think she's promoting this album as a country album. Still doing well in Canada. Only a matter of time before they start playing her new song here on radio. We also have AC, The chances of this being a country hit are unlikely but I think she will announce a second official single in November and head to North America.

WUD tumbled out of top 50 on iTunes all genre to #54. Barely holding top 20 on country at #19. Tommy, are these numbers good to your standard? It’s a good song, but if she doesn’t promo it more, especially in the USA, it will be fall off pretty soon. The song hasn’t even reached her top streaming songs on Spotify yet.

A comparison between LATGG and WUD in the first week after release:

- Life’s about to get good (after 7 days) -
1.072.299 streams on Spotify
1.650.000 Youtube views (got released a month later)

- Waking up Dreaming (5 day update) -
596.032 streams on Spotify (est. 7 days = 800.000)
1.301.700 Youtube views (est. 7 days = 1.800.000)

As WUD is doing a bit better on the Itunes chart than LATGG did and both the video and song got released in same week I do think it will chart higher. Fridays the first charts will be published.

And maybe we can give all give the streams on Spotify an extra push 😉?

Would you mind sharing where you found this streaming data? Why are you only referring to Spotify as a source? What about Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon, etc? Is there a way to find her actual streaming numbers across all platforms?

Spotify streams are the only one’s I can see. The desktop version of Spotify shows you the data (updates every day). Of Life’s About To Get Good I still have printscreens of the viewing figures and Spotify data of 2017. Of course there are more platforms to be considered.

Your reaction to Waking Up Dreaming has been... unreal. We clearly all love to daydream!! 😂 I’m definitely a daydreamer - I love that escapism and the feeling of making up what it is you might wanna be. For this song I was daydreaming about being a rockstar!! And I’m very happy I got to channel that in the music video 🎸

I think she could sing at the AMA's on November 20 since she just winked at it on TikTok and Instagram today. Besides, AMA's recently supported Waking Up Dreaming. Her new music seems more Pop than Country-Pop so I see her more at AMA's. Early November seems a little early, just over a month and another single already!?
Right now, I think Shania is thinking about what outfits she might wear to these awards, planning her tour, planning to shoot new music videos.

Shania Twain Teases Upcoming American Music Awards Performance

Shania Twain is giving us new music soon. She just dropped a brand new single titled “Waking Up Dreaming” and she has a new record label. It’s a fantastic return to the infectious crossover pop that became her signature in the late 90s. It seems that she’ll offer the first television performance of the track on the American Music Awards in November. She posted a new video soundtracked by the tune. And she directed fans to the AMAs on November 20. The awards show is held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and it will air on ABC. It begins at 8 p.m. ET.

“Livin my dream,” she captioned the video, tagging the American Music Awards official account.

She shows off a lot of looks in the video montage. And she recently broke down a lot of her most iconic looks of all time. She talked about two looks that Kelsea Ballerini paid tribute to at this year’s ACM Honors. The 29-year-old star borrowed Shania Twain’s dress from the 1999 GRAMMY ceremony for the red carpet. She also recreated the iconic video for “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” Shania Twain earned the ACM Poet’s Award at the ceremony. Fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne also paid tribute to one of her heroes. The entire ceremony is available to stream on Hulu.

Waking Up Dreaming seems like a UK single seems to be the only place she promoted it, CMA Awards maybe? American Music Awards are more likely as it has a more pop audience. Also a new single release sounds more likely. I wouldn't be shocked if an album comes out late November? If not definitely in January. Her new album has some big pop rocking songs on it. I'd be shocked if she sang Waking Up Dreaming at AMAs. Depends how well it does on radio I guess.

With thousands of radio stations across the U.S., 14 plays in one week is nothing. That's awful. And only 34 plays in Canada.

Tommy, that is atrocious. She hasn’t done any promotion in Canada or the US. Radio isn’t just going to play her music because she’s Shania Twain. She hasn’t had a hit in decades. She‘s going to have to do promo within the US and Canada. The streaming of the song isn’t even performing as well as LATGG did in 2017. Still hasn’t made it to her top streaming songs in the most recent days on either Spotify or Apple. The song has fallen off iTunes top 200 and is down to number 63 on country. It’s been out for over a week now, and has already lost any traction it had. Country radio isn’t even adding it to playlist. Either that is a result of her label not putting it to radio, or playlisters don’t think it would fit, or maybe don’t even know she has a new single. Can we even consider this the lead single if it’s not being promoted within the USA? Sounds like it’s a single more for the UK.

Waking up dreaming isn't a US Canada single, Still a good song. If she performs At the ACM awards and does a North American promotion which she is. She already says a lot to come and her second single should do better. In the UK she promoted it not North America. You all wait and see she's taking a break probably soon to start on the next single and promotion in North America perhaps late October. Perhaps that was her plan to release a tease. Waking up dreaming is a good song. I'll repeat the next single will be a hit. You can't have radio play in North America without any promotion. If she does the America Music awards it will be huge. I don't think she'll perform Waking up dreaming. A new song would make sense. Especially the lizzo Duet if that is in fact on the album. She has a lot to say, she already said that but she can't say much currently. Her new record label ain't stupid they are just planning it and doing it right. I already said Waking up dreaming wasn't meant for North America radio. If she flys to the America music awards to sing Waking up dreaming it would make no sense. That album has alot of good songs and personally it will sell well. Waking up dreaming isn't crappie I love it but they are not worried about it being a hit maybe that's the point. So I'm telling you all to be patient. she's got a lot of good music to come. Most artists her age in country music don't get radio play. It can be a fantastic album and that is where it will do good. This is a UK single North American is coming and when it does watch out. If she does the America Music Awards and a new song then Shania and her label know they got something better to come. If she doesn't promote it across North America then it will flop. Tommy you already said this is a good song but probably wouldn't do well on radio. Doesn't mean the song is crap. I am just 100% positive this album got some real good songs on it. North America yes which includes Canada will Get a brand new single next month. She's planning a massive North American Promotion and New single. Just wait and see. If she doesn't then I'll be shocked. Once again Waking up dreaming wasn't meant for North America, The next single will be. If walking up dreaming was meant for North America she wouldn't have flown home to Switzerland. Personally I just love the new material and song titles so far. Stop worrying about radio and the song didn't do to bad, just these days you can get music for free. So please stop worrying about radio,  We will get better music and a world tour. I'm just hoping she does the America Music awards with a brand new single. Tommy you already said this song wouldn't do well on radio? So what's the shock. Your predictions so far have been correct but that doesn't mean the next one won't do better. I am surprised Adult Contemporary radio stations aren't picking it up more but let's wait to see what the next song sounds like and if she promotes it. Regardless I am gonna love the album. She has the fans behind her as for radio country music is an all male mosley kind of station anyway.  What is annoying half of what is on Country radio is pop/country/RNB. Waking up dreaming sounds kinda 80s her next single needs to come out with a more today's sound. I love the Queen song, However the one on Tiktok she shared a long time ago I want that to be the single next, So damn catchy and she sounded good. Hopefully it made the album because I got party for two vibes from it.

Shania's new single


Shania is at the point in her long career where she doesn't need a song to do well anymore. By now, she is just releasing the music she wants to release and if it does well, then great. If it doesn't do well, then that's okay too. All that matters is she is making the music she wants to make.

I think you've got the point. She's doing what she wants and likes to do right now in music but not just with her music. 

She knows extremely well radio won't support her anymore and she does nothing to hide that feeling anymore. She's speaking her heart out lately, more than ever before, so she can't expect radio to support her. 

Plus, I never heard her say this is the lead single. She never said that.

I agree with both of you. As for promoting and WUD being meant for the UK only, it really doesn't make sense. Especially being the first single off the album. Why purposely target one country even if she still has more success there. Shania was in London for two weeks taping the singing competition show "Starstruck". So that's why she was promoting WUD there. It doesn't matter where an artist "promotes". The song is released everywhere. That's like saying the second single will be for US/Canada only if she's over here promoting.

Shania's new single


Even though radio won't really play her new music, I'm really surprised she's not making the rounds on key U.S. radio and television programs. I listen to the Bobby Bones show every morning and I've not heard them mention her new song once. It's on country radio and gets a ton of listeners but they have interviewed a variety of performers both in and out of country music. Shania was on it twice in 2017 when Now was being released. I just find her marketing questionable.

However, I've noticed that country radio doesn't really play her old songs either. I've heard Man! I Feel Like a Woman! on the radio once in the past year and none of her other songs. They play Taylor's country songs and other people from the 90s all the time.

So Is that 34 stations or just 34 times played on the radio? Also Tommy you are correct the song is released worldwide. So if she performs Waking up Dreaming at the American Music Awards? Will that be a good idea or bad? Like at that point is it time to promote a third single? I'm not just  a girl shouldn't be added to the New album if it was added on the other in September. She has a new Record label but what's going on is she controlling how she promotes it? I agree it just isn't a UK single. However what is she planning? I know this album has good songs on it. Announcing a new single in November makes sense I agree 100% but she might just perform Waking up dreaming which by that time a second single would be a better option. I still love not just a girl and walking up dreaming. Maybe just maybe the CMA awards? However it isn't a country Record so probably it will be the American Music Awards. If not she lays low and doesn't do any promotion until after Christmas

She had singles from Up! that were only promoted overseas. Kaching and Thank You Baby. Maybe she thought WUD would do better over there than in the US (like more of her pop stuff seems to do), and perhaps her second single “Giddy Up” will have more of a country sound that she will want to promote more for US. All just speculation. Only Shania knows what she’s planning.
