Shania Twain is the self-titled debut album by Shania Twain, originally released in 1993. Although not a hit when originally released, Twain's subsequent successful albums gained her legions of fans, which generated more interest in Shania Twain causing it to be certified platinum in the US for shipments of one million copies. None of Shania Twain's songs were included in Twain's Greatest Hits album, released in 2004.

Three songs were originally recorded by other artists. "There Goes the Neighborhood" was recorded by Joe Diffie on his 1990 album A Thousand Winding Roads, "When He Leaves You" was previously a single for Donna Meade in 1989, and "You Lay a Whole Lot of Love on Me" was recorded by Con Hunley in 1980 and Tom Jones in 1983.
