Party For Two

Album: Greatest Hits (2004)
Charted: 10 58

Songfacts®:

  • This song is a duet, where Shania entices a guy to come over for a party. He resists at first, but when she makes it clear that the party will be just the two of them, he finds the idea more appealing.
  • Twain wrote this with her husband Mutt Lange, who is a very successful producer. Twain, who was known as a Country singer, became a crossover star with the help of Lange, who added a Pop sheen to her songs. They were married from 1993-2008.
  • Two versions of this song were produced: A Pop version with Mark McGrath and a Country version with Billy Currington. While Shania could get airplay on both Country and Pop radio stations, finding a male duet partner who could do the same would prove difficult, so the two versions maximized airplay. >>
