Shania Twain Reminisces About Writing Britney Spears’ ‘Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know’

Did you know pop princess Britney Spears recorded her 2001 ballad “Don’t Let Me Be the Last to Know” inside the home of Shania Twain, the queen of country pop? It’s true, and even her most avid fans were surprised to learn the two powerhouses collaborated on the track from Spears’ Oops!... I Did It Again.

“She was working with my ex-husband in the studio, and I got to say hello while she was in the studio because it was at our home [in Switzerland in 1999]” said Twain, 52, inciting laughs from the audience during Fuse’s recent interview with her at Spotify HQ in New York City. “She was very sweet. It was a great experience just to get to know her on a behind-the-scenes level a little bit. It was obviously an honor to have her record some of my songwriting...Britney did a beautiful job with the song.”
