Twain rides with Babie on remix

Friday, March 24, 2023 – Shania Twain released a collaboration with female producer Malibu Babie (Megan Thee Stallion, Nicki Minaj) with a remix of the current single, "Giddy Up!"

Babie is the first and only woman to debut at number one on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as a producer this century.

The remix arrives on the heels of Twain's three exclusive Spotify Singles—"Queen of Me (Acoustic)" and her covers of "Falling" by Harry Styles and "Spoonful" by Howlin' Wolf.

Twain said, "I like to work with talented people, and its never really been part of my process to consider gender when choosing collaborators, but I think it's important to work on closing this gender gap we all feel is still an obstacle."

"So, in this instance, I sought out a female remixer. I liked Malibu Babie's style and knew she was a fan from her TikTok mashup of one of my songs. I think her 'Giddy Up! Remix' is awesome. She is so talented, and I'm so pleased to give a fellow female producer the spotlight. I hope the fans love it as much as me."

Like a good many country artists in the HNC phase of country, success seems to breed a situation where artists turn their backs on the very genre which spawned them. After the massive success of "The Woman In Me," Shania Twain has strayed very far from country in what is essentially a pop album. Few of the 16 songs are country: the first single, the catchy, uptempo "Love Gets Me Every Time" with its killer three fiddle attack, "You're Still The One," "Honey, I'm Home," (a lousy job blues song, ...
