It’s hard to imagine it today, but Shania Twain had jaws dropping back in the ’90s when she first bared her midriff. The year was 1995 and Shania rocked the country world with her breakthrough hit, “Any Man of Mine.”
Many hits would follow before Shania released this song on her 2002 album, “Up!” It’s called “Thank You Baby! (For Makin’ Someday Come So Soon),” and here’s Shania performing it on a U.K. TV show around the time of the song’s release. You can see her looking like a million bucks showing just a hint of that midriff that helped put her on the map.
Though it wasn’t a hit in the U.S., “Thank You Baby!” captured fans’ attention throughout Europe thanks to its breezy ’80s-inspired melody. The song also features a sweet message to a significant other for the love they provide.
In this clip, Shania is performing the version of “Thank You Baby!” that appeared on the “red” — or pop version — of her album, “Up!” That project was actually released with each song mixed in pop versions, country versions and international versions, and each disc was a different color. To fully understand what we’re saying, check out these three versions of “Thank You Baby!” here. It’s truly trippy.
These days Shania is riding high with her brand-new single, “Life’s About to Get Good.” It’s the lead track from her first album in 15 years, “Now,” which will be released September 29.
