Come on Over by Shania Twain (Canada, b. Eilleen Edwards) is the world's biggest-selling studio album by a solo female, having shifted an estimated 40 million copies since its release in November 1997. The original soundtrack album The Bodyguard (1992), featuring Whitney Houston, has sold an estimated 44 million copies worldwide and is the only album (studio or otherwise) credited to a female solo artist (more accurately, Whitney Houston and various artists) with higher sales than Come on Over. The biggest-selling studio album by a solo female after Come on Over is Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill (1995), with estimated worldwide sales of 33 million copies as of March 2015.

As well as the biggest-selling studio album ever by a solo female, Come on Over remains the biggest-selling country music album (although sales were boosted by a pop-orientated international version, first released in 1998) and the biggest-selling album by a Canadian act, and it was also the world's top seller of the 1990s, shifting 22 million copies in the last 26 months of the decade (since 4 November 1997).

In November 2004, the album received its most recent (as of March 2015) multi-platinum certification for US shipments of 20 million units (ranking it eighth equal in the US market). As reported by Billboard on 10 October 2014, Come on Over has sold a total 15.58 million copies in the US alone.

Come on Over spent 50 non-consecutive weeks (11 separate runs) at No.1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart between 22 November 1997 and 8 January 2000.

The album spawned an incredible 12 singles, including "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!", "That Don't Impress Me Much", "From this Moment On" and "You're Still the One", the latter becoming a first-dance favourite at wedding receptions.

In a March 2015 interview with Andy Cohen on the US chat show Watch What Happens Live, Twain revealed that she'd earned approximately $20 million (£13.3 million, as of 12 March 2015) from the success of Come on Over.
