EYES ON ME ~ CELINE DION
"Eyes on Me" is the second single from Céline Dion's album Taking Chances, released in the United Kingdom on January 7, 2008. "Alone" was released as the second single in the rest of Europe and North America instead. The Middle Eastern-flavored song was written by Kristian Lundin, Savan Kotecha and Australian singer Delta Goodrem. Goodrem also provides backing vocals on the track produced by Lundin. The latter worked with Dion in the past on "That's the Way It Is" and "I'm Alive" among others. The critics heavily compared the track to Shakira songs. "Eyes on Me" was remixed by Ashanti Boyz, whose latest work includes remixes for Jennifer Lopez tracks: "Do It Well" and "Hold It Don't Drop It." Dion performed this song during An Audience with Céline Dion, which aired in the UK on ITV on December 22, 2007. She also performed a remix version featuring will.i.am from The Black Eyed Peas during her CBS special, That's Just the Woman in Me, which aired in the U.S. on February 15, 2008. However this version isn't commercially available."Eyes on Me" was released in the UK with virtually no promotion surrounding it in the media, leading to its peak position at number 113 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was used in a TV commercial for Dion's fragrance Sensational. The music video for "Eyes on Me" was released on May 5, 2008, containing footages from the Taking Chances Tour in Africa and Asia. In early June 2008, "Eyes on Me" was released as a radio single in Poland to promote the Taking Chances Tour. Later that month, the digital single was released on iTunes in several European countries. In October 2008, "Eyes on Me" was included on the European version of My Love: Ultimate Essential Collection. A live version was included in the Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert CD/DVD.
