To date, the album has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide,[1] shipped over 20 million copies in the United States,[2] with 15,524,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan and another 1.99 million through BMG Music Clubs.[3] The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and stayed there for 50 non-consecutive weeks. It stayed in the Top Ten for 151 weeks.

History[edit]

The album was a blockbuster success, becoming the biggest-selling studio album of all time by a female artist, the biggest-selling country music album ever, the biggest-selling album by a Canadian act and one of the biggest-selling albums in music history. Three different versions of the album were released, the original country version, released in 1997, and the revised pop and international versions released in 1998 and 1999 respectively. The album was also supported by an extensive world tour by Twain.

Chart performance[edit]

Twain topped her own record with the release of Come On Over, beating out then Diamond album The Woman in Me, as the best-selling country music album ever released. It was, in fact, the best-selling album ever released by a female artist in any genre. Debuting at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 with a moderate 172,000 copies (3,000 units behind Mase's Harlem World), the album showed its consistency when it moved another 170,000 copies in its second week (a 1.2% decrease) to stay at No. 2 again behind Barbra Streisand's Higher Ground. The RIAA certified Come on Over Gold, Platinum and 2× platinum on December 23, 1997. It sold more than 100,000 units in each of 62 weeks. The album's best sales week was its 110th week, during which it sold 355,000 units to settle at number ten (Christmas 1999). The album stayed on the top 10 for 54 weeks, top 40 for 127 consecutive weeks. Worldwide, the album has sold 40 million copies. Come On Over ranks as the second best-selling album of the Nielsen SoundScan era in United States, with 15,520,000 copies sold up to September 5, 2012, trailing its nearest rival, Metallica's 1991 self-titled album, by 294,000 copies.[4] However, these figures do not include sales through such entities as BMG Music Club, where Come on Over has sold 1.99 million copies while Metallica has sold less than 298,000 copies.[5] Worldwide it sold 3.4 million copies in 1997, 8.9 million in 1998 and over 15.2 million copies in 1999, standing strong in 2000 selling another 6.4 million copies worldwide and to date over 40 million copies sold across the world

Critical reception[edit]

The album received very positive reviews. AllMusic praised the album for successfully breaking free of traditional country stereotypes (musical brevity, a blatant honkey-tonk image, etc.), while also praising Twain for crafting an album with just as much pop/rock appeal as country appeal. Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly praised the album for successfully incorporating a substantial rock influence without losing its country sensibilities.
