Music Reviews Shania Twain

GRAMMY® Award-Winning Icon Shania Twain Hits with ‘Giddy Up!’

GRAMMY® winner and “Music Icon” winner at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, Shania Twain just set the bar today for new party songs with her fresh single Giddy UP!, the lead single for her soon-to-be-released album “Queen of Me”. This joint is high energy, danceable, has fun lyrics, and is a dancefloor filler…not to mention the track is absolute fire.

Highly celebrated for her pitch control and range, Shania delivers a full-bodied vocal performance on “Giddy Up!”, with a showcase of nuanced timbre and intonation that fully completed the production. If you don’t care about the details and just want to get the party started or keep it going, “Giddy Up!” is going to be a hot one.

The single is accompanied by a video that totally “gets” the song and puts us in places we might not expect to find a party but could be cool to start one…Now as for the dance, I’ll say this, you will NOT be out of shape if you add even just one round to your daily workout; the choreography is doable even for “two left footers”, and invites personalization making it even more fun.

In a statement regarding the single, Shania says, “The saying “Let’s Go Girls!” is such a wonderfully uplifting sentiment now, but it’s just something I said during the recording in the studio and I guess that’s the same for “Giddy Up!”. These lines come to me when I’m thinking about how to put a little “pep in my step.” I want people to feel good when they hear the new album. I want to set a celebratory tone and “Giddy Up!” is a way to call to the audience and say “let’s get ready for some fun!” Shania also discussed this topic, in an earlier interview published on The Hype Magazine portal by Allison Kugel.

Shania’s upcoming album “Queen of Me” is set for release on February 3rd and the superstar has announced a supporting tour for the project kicking off this spring.
