About this album

It’s a Man’s World is the twenty-second album by American singer-actress, Cher released on November 6, 1995 by Warner Bros Records. This is also the start of her second stint with the label. It has sold 6,000,000 copies world-wide. It peaked at #64 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart with sales of 17,000.


It’s a Man’s World found Cher singing ‘unconventional’ songs in a style more associated with the Deep South, rather than her more familiar pop and rock roots. The album also stands out for Cher stretching her vocals to head register for such songs as “One by One” and “The Gunman”, getting out of her comfort zone of her trademark husky contralto.

Cher recorded It’s a Man’s World in London in 1995. That same year the album was released all over Europe with “Walking in Memphis” as its lead off single. The original album included fourteen songs, but when it was released in the United States in 1996 the setlist included only eleven songs. Three songs, “I Wouldn’t Treat a Dog (The Way You Treated Me)”, “Don’t Come Around Tonite” and “The Shape of Things to Come” had been removed from the American release. The American release was also reviewed by critics as a ‘mid-’90s R&B/pop phenomenon’ due to the removal of these three rock songs and also due to five songs remixed to evoke a contemporary R&B feel.
