"She's All I Ever Had" is the second single taken from the multiplatinum first English-language album by Ricky Martin, called simply Ricky Martin. It was released on June 15, 1999. The Spanish-language version is called "Bella" ("Beautiful").

The track was written by Jon Secada, Draco Rosa and George Noriega and produced by Secada and Noriega.

Reception[edit]

According to the review by Billboard: "There was no doubt that this delectable anthemic ballad was the one to go with as the second single from Ricky Martin. "Livin' la Vida Loca" certainly fulfilled the hype with a deserved five-week run at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, and this follow-up will do nothing but advance Martin's place not only as the leading pop male vocalist of the day but as a valid phenomenon. "She's All I Ever Had" absolutely succeeds on all levels. Lyrically, Martin narrates the tale of a man missing his woman, as he continues to live and breathe for her. Martin's vocal is tender and heartfelt, boasting a versatility that contrasts nicely with "La Vida," while the lush production is savvy and creatively executed."

Music video[edit]

The video for this single, which Charlotte Ayanna appears in, was directed by Nigel Dick in Los Angeles and shot in June 1999, and aired in August 1999.

It was certified Gold for selling over 500,000 copies.

"She's All I Ever Had" also peaked inside top ten in Canada, New Zealand and Finland. In Australia, the single was certified Gold.

Awards[edit]

It was also nominated for Latin Pop Track of the Year at the Billboard Latin Music Awards.
