Billboard’s Mashup Mondays: Charice Goes Country

Billboard’s Mashup Mondays: Charice Goes Country

Pop sensation Charice knows a good song when she hears it and for this week’s Mashup Monday, the 18-year-old Filipina goes Country with a heartfelt vocals-and-acoustic-guitar cover of Shania Twain’s 1997 song “You’re Still The One.”

“That song reminds me of my mom. [She] used to be a vocalist in a band and they were always singing that song,” Charice says of why she chose to cover the Country star’s hit, which was released when Charice was only five years old. “I love the way Shania sang it and recorded it. It’s just really amazing.”

Both women have spent quality time on the Billboard charts. Twain’s “You’re Still The One” rose all the way to No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, and the album on which it appears, “Come On Over,” managed the same feat on the Country Albums chart. Even though she’s still in her teens, Charice has already managed to nab a No. 1 “Hot Dance Club Play” song — “Pyramid,” which features Iyaz — and her self-titled 2010 album reached the top 10 of the Billboard 200.

“Charice does an impressive job with this cover—her voice is totally in control, and she takes her time performing the story of the song as opposed to focusing on any vocal theatrics. ” ~idolator.com

    Why does everyone say this is a country song only?
    Shania has written and recorded some of the biggest pop and country songs in history.
    Your Still the One was a massive pop hit by Shania worldwide.
    Shania has had many pop hits worldwide and thats why she is one of the biggest and most successful pop or country artists in history.
    Shania has never been just one genre. She is the biggest cross over artist in history and holds the record for biggest selling female album of alltime.

    I also thought Charice did a very good job on the song.
    And yes Shania has sung it many times with just a guitar and live acoustic and it sounds great every time.
