Shania Twain is back at the top of the album charts.
Shania Now, the pop-country megastar’s first album in 15 years, has reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, according to her record label. It’s the first time an album by a female country artist has done so in more than three years. The project has also topped album charts in Australia, Canada, the U.K. and Zimbabwe, and hit the Top Five in Ireland and New Zealand.
“This is an emotional day as I take in the great news that my new album has come in at No. 1,” Shania says through her publicist. “I am deeply moved to have your support and soon we will be singing the songs together in concert on my upcoming tour where I will have the chance to celebrate with you in person. Can’t wait!”
