"Misled" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Celine Dion for her third English-language album The Colour of My Love (1993). It was released as the third single from The Colour of My Love on 21 March 1994. "Misled" topped the US Dance Club Songs chart and reached number four in Canada. It also peaked at number 15 in the UK and number 23 in the United States.

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")."[1] 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."[2] And Dave Sholin from the Gavin Report wrote: "Mention the name Celine Dion and a lot of people are inclined to think of her hit ballads. To be sure, this French-Canadian songstress has had some of the biggest of the decade. But she's just as comfortable picking up the tempo, which she does with ease on this bright and tight Ric Wake production."[3]

Accolades[edit]

"Misled" won the BMI Pop Award for Most Performed Song in the United States.[4]

On the RPM Adult Contemporary, it reached number two and stayed in this position for five weeks.

In the United States, the song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1994 and reached number 23 in June 1994. It became Dion's first song to top the US Dance Club Songs, where it stayed at number one for two weeks. It also reached number 15 on the US Adult Contemporary. In the United Kingdom, "Misled" originally reached number 40 in April 1994. However, after the re-release, it achieved a new peak of number 15 in November 1995.
