"Thank You Baby! (For Makin' Someday Come So Soon)" is a song by Canadian singer Shania Twain. It was the fourth international single released from her 2002 album Up!. The song was written by Mutt Lange and Twain. It was announced by Twain, that "Thank You Baby!" would be the next single from Up! at her Kilkenny concert, her first concert since the Come On Over Tour. The song fared well on the charts, boosted by club play of the Almighty remixes. The European single was released August 11, 2003 and the UK singles on August 25, 2003.
Critical reception for "Thank You Baby!" was warm. About.com called the song a "nice mid-tempo ballad", while Rolling Stone magazine noted it conveyed "motherly intimacy and an undeniable pop sense".
The music video for "Thank You Baby!" was shot in Vancouver, Canada at First Light Film Studio by director Paul Boyd. It was originally released in Europe on July 28, 2003. The video is set in an art gallery, with three four-sided TVs stacked on top of each in the middle of the room. Twain is singing on the TVs (her head on the top screen, her torso in the middle and legs on the bottom), while the people in the gallery start noticing her and crowd around the TVs to watch. Also, paintings of an orchestra come to life to play along in the song. The video is available on select CD singles.
"Thank You Baby!" proved to be less successful than the previous singles released from Up!, nevertheless it just missed the top ten in the UK when it debuted at its peak of number 11. It entered the chart on September 6, 2003, and remained on the chart for seven weeks. While it did break the streak of top ten singles at seven in the UK, it did become her tenth top 20 single. The song also hit the top 20 in Austria and Germany.
