S'il suffisait d'aimer (meaning If Loving Were Enough) is an album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released on 7 September 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 (1995).

Content and promotion

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.

AllMusic 3/5 stars[1]

AllMusic said that "fans will be pleased to hear Dion's return, in a sense, to her roots, especially since the album is about as consistent as any of her albums, both English and French."[2]

Chart performance

S'il suffisait d'aimer is the second, after D'eux, best-selling French album of all time. It has sold over 4 million copies worldwide,[3][4] including 2 million in Europe, where it was certified 2x Platinum by the IFPI.[5] S'il suffisait d'aimer has sold over 1,890,000 copies in France alone and was certified Diamond.[6] In Canada, it has sold 500,000 copies[7] and was certified 4x Platinum[8]

The album was certified Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum around the world, also in non-Francophone countries. S'il suffisait d'aimer became the second, after D'eux, French-language album to be certified Gold in the United Kingdom.[9] In the United States, although a French-language release, it has sold 112,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan.[10][11]

S'il suffisait d'aimer topped the charts in Switzerland (for five weeks), France (for four weeks), Belgium Wallonia (for four weeks), and in Canada, Greece, Poland and on the European Top 100 Albums. It charted inside top 40 in many non-Francophone countries, including the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number 17.
