One of country’s queens almost collaborated with Prince. Shania Twain recently told reporters in Nashville that before Prince’s death, the pop music legend reached out to her with interest in producing her comeback album.“ The very first producer that called me, who reached out to me before I’d even written the album—I was writing all the time but I hadn’t started writing for the album...I get a call from Prince,” Shania says. “And Prince and I—we had a few conversations, we emailed each other. We exchanged [notes] on email for...months.”But timing wasn’t on Shania’s side.“When he was calling me and mailing me, I wasn’t ready to do the album,” she adds. “He said, ‘Come to my studio, let’s get started,’ and I just said, ‘I can't sing right now, I just don’t have my voice yet.’ And I never did it.”The “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” singer goes on to say not taking the late singer up on his offer is “definitely” one of her “professional regret[s].”Shania’s new single “Life's About To Get Good” is available now. Shania Now, her first album since 2002’s Up!, is set for release September 29.
