"Misled" is the third single from Céline Dion's album The Colour of My Love. It was released on March 28, 1994.[1]

The song was remixed by: Mark Kinchen (MK), Richie Jones, Shedrick Guy (The Groove) and Eric Miller (E-smoove).

Live versions of "Misled" can be found on The Colour of My Love Concert DVD (1995), Live à Paris DVD (1996) and Live in Memphis VHS (1998).

The music video was directed by Randee St. Nicholas (1994), and included on Céline Dion's DVD video collection All the Way… A Decade of Song & Video (2001). It alternates between scenes of Dion performing in a club, posing in front of a mirror and in a bathtub, and quarreling with a lover.

"Misled" topped the Hot Dance Club Play chart in the United States for 2 weeks. It was Dion's first number 1 on that chart, until 14 years after, when remixes of "Taking Chances" reached the same position, becoming Dion's second number 1 single on this chart. "Misled" reached top 10 in Canada (number 7), and top 40 in the United Kingdom (number 15), United States (number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay and number 52 on the Hot 100 Singles Sales), and New Zealand (number 31). According to Nielsen SoundScan the single has sold 115,000 copies in the U.S.

It's the third Céline Dion single that was re-released in the United Kingdom, after "Where Does My Heart Beat Now" and "If You Asked Me To". "Misled" reached number 40 in April 1994 and later in November 1995 it peaked at number 15.

The song was included later on the European edition of My Love: Ultimate Essential Collection in 2008.

Critical reception[edit]

While referring to Dion's "forcefully resonant and multiflavored vocals," Chicago Tribune editor Brad Webber wrote: "On "The Colour of My Love," you've got to dig deep to find them, though, past the crooked roots of a Janet Jackson impersonation ("Misled" and "Think Twice")."[2] Editor Jose F. Promis of Allmusic reviewed the single and rated it 4 out 5 stars. He called the album version "definitive and muscular," "Groove Edit" a "soulful, more hip-hop-leaning take on the song," "MK Radio Remix" and the "Richie Jones Club Mix," a "two smooth and sleek house remixes" and finally "MK's History Mix" which is "deeper and housier." He concluded the review calling this single a rarity and "...she is soulful, sassy, exuberant, campy, and almost just plain nasty, and it works, resulting in a long-forgotten, and definitive highlight (and oddity) in the singer's illustrious career."[3]
