S'il suffisait d'aimer (meaning If Loving Were Enough) is an album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released on September 7, 1998. It's her 19th French album and 24th in total. S'il suffisait d'aimer is the second best-selling French-language album of all time, after Dion's own D'eux.
The project reunited Dion and Jean-Jacques Goldman, who last worked together on the very successful album D'eux. In their first collaboration Goldman wrote songs for Dion, this time he wrote more in his own style, while letting Dion sing her own unique way, like she has been singing a long time ago. Most of the arrangements on that album are simple to let her voice dominate the songs.
During the francophone concerts in the Let's Talk About Love Tour, Dion performed six songs from S'il suffisait d'aimer. The concerts in Paris were recorded and released as Au cœur du stade in 1999. It was promoted by the video of Dion performing "Dans un autre monde." In addition, video from behind the scenes of the recording session of S'il suffisait d'aimer was included as a bonus on the Au cœur du stade DVD.
Some tracks from S'il suffisait d'aimer were featured on Dion's 2005 greatest hits album On ne change pas.
