EDITORS’ NOTES

Celine Dion became the bestselling Canadian artist in history with emotional, lushly orchestrated pop ballads, but Loved Me Back to Life is delivered with surprisingly edgy tenacity. The album’s first single, the bombastic title track written by Sia (who has penned supernova pop hits for Rihanna, Katy Perry, and David Guetta, among many others), makes a commanding opening statement. From there, Dion offers an arresting performance of songs alongside a carefully selected roster of collaborators, including Ne-Yo (who sings with her on the powerful duet “Incredible”), Babyface, and Eg White (who cowrote and produced the album's seductive highlight, “Water and a Flame”). Other highlights include "Overjoyed"—a Stevie Wonder song performed in a duet with Wonder himself—and the sensitively executed "Unfinished Songs."

We are not worthy.

The queen is back and she is snatching wigs.

The Wait is Over… Almost

Loved Me Back to Life, the song, is the best leading single Céline has released since I Drove All Night back in 2003. It's a much better song than Taking Chances (2007) -- which was still great, but unlike that song, this is a total original, not a cover. The song feels very current. There are hints of Rihanna's style in it, and Sia has done an amazing job writing it. Finally, a Celine song that is current, hip, and doesn't come across as Celine trying to be current and hip. It fits right into mainstream American radio, but it's still a Celine Dion song. No one else on the radio today has a voice like the one she puts on display and reminds us of her. If there is any justice in the world, this single will obliterate Katy Perry's Roar, Lady Gaga's Applause, and Miley Cyrus' entire Bangerz on the charts. Even if it doesn't, this is still one of the best songs of the past year.
