|Singles from All Your Love|
All Your Love is Malaysian recording artist Siti Nurhaliza's fifteenth studio album and her first English-language album. It was released digitally on September 16 and physically on September 26, 2011 by What's Up Entertainment, which is owned and managed by her stepson Adib Khalid. All of the tracks were produced and written by two Australian composers and producers, Bryan Bouro and Christian Alexanda.
On "Remember You" and "I'll Wait Forever", she collaborated with Sean Kingston and Christian Alexanda respectively. The production took place in late January 2011 with the voice recording of all 10 tracks taking two weeks in Kuala Lumpur, while the mixing and mastering process took place in several studios in Australia and Los Angeles.
The first single, "Falling in Love", was released and promoted on July 9, when she performed it for the first time at one of her promotional concerts for her beauty products and cosmetic range, SimplySiti in UiTM. It was performed live again a week later at the 10th Anugerah Planet Muzik. The album as of March 2012, has sold a total of more than 70 000 units from both digital and physical releases.
Background and recording
|I want an English album as a memento of my career as a singer. I don't want to think much about how to sing or the pronunciation of the English lyrics because I'm an Asian. What most important is that the pronunciation is clear and the messages [of the songs] are received [by them]..'"|
—Siti Nurhaliza on her English pronunciation.
In an interview during Secretary Week in March 2011, she revealed that she was working on a fully English album, with six of 10 tracks having been recorded as early as late January of the same year.
For the first time, she worked under the management of What's Up Entertainment, which is owned by her stepson, Adib Khalid who is only 21 years old. Written and produced almost entirely by Christian Alexanda and Bryan Bouro, the tracks were mixed and mastered in various studios, including mixHaus studios in Los Angeles, Oasis Mastering in Burbank, California and WhyteHype Studios in Perth, Australia.
The idea behind the album began when Siti and her husband Datuk Seri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa visited her stepson's recording company, What's Up Entertainment, and expressed her interest in having few songs written by Alexanda (a recording artist under Adib's management). In less than two months, Alexanda finished writing 10 songs for Siti, and he and Bouro monitored Siti's English pronunciation throughout the recording process while maintaining her "Voice of Asia" identity. Apart from solo tracks, All Your Love also featured vocals from Alexanda, in "I'll Wait Forever", as well as Sean Kingston, who is featured in the final track of the album, "Remember You". Some consideration was given to featuring Pitbull on the album, but owing to financial constraints the idea was dropped.
Artwork and title
The main album cover is said to be influenced by the work of Andy Warhol with its brightly coloured hues and stylised portrait of the singer. When she was asked why she choose "All Your Love" as the title, she said, "The title of the album is dedicated to all my fans, my family and friends who have been so supportive of me over the years. I want to make them proud by producing an album that could potentially break into the international market."
Release and promotion
Although the official release for the physical version date was set on September 26, 2011, All Your Love was already available to the market as early as September 24; it sold over 3000 copies from that first print and so far has sold more than 70 000 units as of March 2012. The album's digital version however was release 10 days earlier and it was Siti's first album to be digitally released through iTunes. The album was officially released on September 26, at Shook Restaurant, Starhill Gallery, Bukit Bintang. She also promoted her album through several television programmes including on Bella and Hello on Two on ntv7 and TV2 respectively. For the promotion of her second single, she toured several major shopping malls in Malaysia including The Curve and One Utama Shopping Centre on March 10 and 16 respectively.

A week later, she performed it to audience from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia at the 10th Anugerah Planet Muzik.
