"To Love You More" is a single by Celine Dion, written by David Foster and Edgar Bronfman, Jr., writing under the pen-name Junior Miles. It was released in Japan on 21 October 1995.[1] The lyrics are about a woman who makes an impassioned plea to her lover so that he does not leave her for another woman.

Song information

It was recorded for a popular Japanese TV drama series, called Koibito yo (meaning My Dear Lover), and included on The Colour of My Love album re-release in Japan. Later it appeared on the Asian edition of Falling into You, Live à Paris ("To Love You More" was one of the radio singles promoting this album in Canada), and the US edition of Let's Talk About Love, being released as the third (but promotional only) single from this album.

In 1995 Sony Music Entertainment Japan released a promotional video showing Celine performing in the recording studio the original studio version.

"To Love You More" became one of the most performed songs by Dion during her live shows and was performed in the setlist of the Falling Into You Around the World Tour, Let's Talk About Love World Tour, A New Day..., the Taking Chances World Tour, and the 2018 tour. Live versions of this song can be found on many of Dion's DVDs, including Live in Las Vegas - A New Day.... The track appeared also on All the Way… A Decade of Song greatest hits in 1999 and My Love: Ultimate Essential Collection in 2008.

Also in 1996, Sony Music Entertainment released a promotional video showing a live performance from the Falling Into You Around the World Tour, with Taro Hakase on violin. The song was re-released on 7 April 1999 in Japan, this time as a maxi-single with club remixes created by Tony Moran.

"To Love You More" won International Single Grand Prix Award at the Japan Gold Disc Awards in Japan, and ASCAP Pop Award and two BMI Pop Awards for Most Performed Song in the United States.

Commercial performance

The song became a smash hit in Japan, hitting number 1 for 5 weeks and selling 1,500,000 copies. Dion was the first international artist who reached number 1 on the Oricon Singles Chart, since Irene Cara's "Flashdance... What a Feeling" in 1983. "To Love You More" remains the second best-selling song by an international artist and the best-selling single by an international female artist in Japan. It is also one of only three international songs that has sold more than 1 million copies.

In July 2010, "To Love You More" realtone was certified gold after selling 100,000 copies.[2]

The song is very popular in Asia, and is found on numerous karaoke selections.

"To Love You More" was also successful on the American radio, although the edited version played by most US radio stations omitted Kryzler & Company's violin bridge and omitted a sizeable chunk of the song's ending. It spent 8 weeks at number 1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks and reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay.

In Canada, "To Love You More" peaked at number 4 on the Quebec Airplay Chart and number 5 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary.
