The Colour of My Love is the third English-language studio album by Canadian recording artist Celine Dion. It was released by Columbia Records/550 Music on 9 November 1993. The songs were produced mainly by David Foster, Ric Wake, Guy Roche, Walter Afanasieff and Christopher Neil, and four of them were written by Diane Warren. The album features two cover versions of "The Power of Love" and "When I Fall in Love."

After its release, The Colour of My Love received generally mixed reviews from music critics but became a commercial success, topping the charts in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and few other European countries, and reaching top ten elsewhere, including number four in the United States. The Colour of My Love has sold over 1.8 million copies in the United Kingdom, 1.5 million units in Canada and shipped million copies in Japan. It remains one of Dion's highest sellers with worldwide sales of over twenty million copies. Singles released from the album include the US number one "The Power of Love," the UK number one "Think Twice," and the Japanese chart topper "To Love You More," which was included on the 1995 re-release of The Colour of My Love in Japan. Each of these singles sold over one million copies in these countries.

The Colour of My Love won two Juno Awards of 1995 for Album of the Year and International Album of the Year, and also received the IRMA Award for Best International Female Artist Album. "Think Twice" won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically and "To Love You More" received the International Single Grand Prix at the Japan Gold Disc Awards. "When I Fall in Love" won the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1994. "The Power of Love" was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 1995.

Background and release[edit]

After releasing two English-language studio albums, Unison (1990) and Celine Dion (1992), recording Academy Award and Grammy Award-winning song, "Beauty and the Beast," and achieving three top ten entries on the Billboard Hot 100 ("Where Does My Heart Beat Now," "Beauty and the Beast" and "If You Asked Me To"), Dion started working on her third English-language album, entitled The Colour of My Love. In September 1993, she performed two concerts at the Capitole de Québec in Quebec City, Canada, which were recorded to be later broadcast on television. Dion performed brand new, unheard songs from the upcoming album The Colour of My Love, including: "Refuse to Dance," "Everybody's Talkin' My Baby Down," "The Colour of My Love," "The Power of Love," "Misled," "Think Twice" and "Only One Road." The show entitled later The Colour of My Love Concert was issued as a home video in 1995. The Colour of My Love was released in November 1993 in North America, December 1993 in Japan, February 1994 in Europe and in March 1994 in Australia.

Content[edit]

The Colour of My Love was released with fourteen songs in the United States and fifteen tracks, including "Just Walk Away," elsewhere. The album was produced mainly by David Foster, Ric Wake, Guy Roche, Walter Afanasieff and Christopher Neil. Diane Warren wrote four songs for The Colour of My Love, including: "Next Plane Out," "Real Emotion," "No Living Without Loving You" and "Lovin' Proof." The album features duet with Clive Griffin on "When I Fall in Love," taken from the Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack and a cover version of Jennifer Rush's 1985 track, "The Power of Love." In October 1995, The Colour of My Love was re-released in Japan, including new song, "To Love You More," written and produced by David Foster.

Singles[edit]

After "When I Fall in Love," which originally appeared on the Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack, "The Power of Love" was issued as the first proper single from The Colour of My Love. The song was very successful, reaching number one in the United States, Canada and Australia, and peaking inside top ten in various countries, including the United Kingdom and France. "The Power of Love" has sold over 1.1 million copies in the United States and was certified Platinum in 1994.[1][2] The next song, "Misled," became a top ten single in Canada and also reached number one on the Hot Dance Club Songs in the United States. Another success came with the release of "Think Twice," a single which topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands, and reached top ten in Australia and Switzerland. "Think Twice" has sold over 1.3 million copies in the United Kingdom and was certified Platinum in 1995 (eligible for two-times Platinum).[3][4] The next single, "Only One Road" peaked inside top ten in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In 1995, "Next Plane Out" was released in Australia and "Just Walk Away" was issued as a promotional single in Spain. In October 1995, The Colour of My Love was re-released in Japan, including new song, "To Love You More," which was released as a single at the same time. "To Love You More" reached number one on the Oricon Singles Chart and has sold 1.3 million copies in Japan.[5][6] It was certified Million by the RIAJ.[7]

Promotion[edit]

Dion promoted The Colour of My Love in North America on various television programmes in late 1993 and early 1994. Additionally, her The Colour of My Love Concert aired in December 1993 in Canada and in February 1994 in the United States. Dion also embarked on The Colour of My Love Tour and performed concerts in the United States in February 1994, and in Canada through May 1994. After the success of "Think Twice" outside North America, she also started promoting the album in 1995 in Europe, including the United Kingdom. One of the most important performances, after releasing the album include: "The Power of Love" at the Juno Awards of 1994 and American Music Awards of 1995, "Think Twice" at the Edison Awards in 1994 and World Music Awards in 1995, and "The Colour of My Love" at the Juno Awards of 1995.

Critical reception[edit]

Upon release, the album received mixed reviews from music critics, with positive attention given to Dion's vocals. Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic gave it three out of five stars and wrote that the album follows the same pattern as Dion's eponymous breakthrough, and while the songs aren't quite as consistent this time around, the record is nevertheless quite successful, thanks to the careful production, professional songwriting (highlighted by "When I Fall in Love," "The Power of Love," and "Think Twice") and Dion's powerhouse performances.[8] Brad Webber from Chicago Tribune gave the album two out of four stars.[9] He felt that "sickly sweet, by-the-books standards" like "The Power of Love" belie Dion's talent: "forcefully resonant and multiflavored vocals."[9] He criticized "crooked roots" of a Janet Jackson impersonation ("Misled" and "Think Twice"), formulaic duo ballad ("When I Fall in Love") and added that with Dion's attempt at soul, you can categorize her as "fairly shallow, sort of a female Michael Bolton."[9] However Webber praised an "exotic thrill" in "Refuse to Dance," which "throws a little variety in the mix."[9]

Commercial performance[edit]

In Canada, The Colour of My Love entered the RPM Albums Chart at number five and moved to the top in the fifth week.[10] It satyed at number one for twelve consecutive weeks and spent eighty weeks on the chart in total.[10] In December 1994, the album was certified Diamond by the CRIA for selling one million copies.[11] It became the second best-selling album of the year 1994 in Canada, after Ace of Base's The Sign.[12] In November 1996, Billboard wrote that the sales of The Colour of My Love have reached 1.5 million units in Canada.[13] In the United States, The Colour of My Love debuted at number eighty-eight, selling 16,000 copies.[14] In March 1994, it peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 and spent 149 weeks on the chart.[15] The album has sold 4,558,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan and was certified six-times Platinum by the RIAA in November 1999 for shipping six million copies in the United States.[16][17]
