"Have You Ever Been in Love" is a song by Céline Dion, released on April 14, 2003 as the second (promotional only) single in the United States and Canada from the album One Heart. On November 3, 2003 it was released as the third, commercial single in selected European countries."Have You Ever Been in Love" appeared first on Dion's 2002 album A New Day Has Come. Although not changed, it was included on One Heart in 2003.A recording of Dion performing this song in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas was supposed to be the music video. However, Sony Music Entertainment asked Antti Jokinen to make a new one. The "Have You Ever Been in Love" music video was shot between April 29–30, 2003 in Los Angeles and released on June 2, 2003. It was included later on the enhanced CD single.

"Have You Ever Been in Love" spent fourteen weeks at number 2 on the U.S. Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks, setting a record for most weeks at the second position. Still, it peaked only at number 4 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles, spending twenty four weeks on this chart. The only sales chart where "Have You Ever Been in Love" appeared was the Swedish Singles Chart, where it reached number 57.Dion performed this song (between March and November 2003) five nights a week during her show A New Day... at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. In October 2008, "Have You Ever Been in Love" was included on the European version of My Love: Ultimate Essential Collection greatest hits. Some years after the album's release, a sheet of paper with Spanish lyrics for this song leaked into the Internet. Céline's signature appeared on the sheet as well as phonetical notes under the adapted lyrics. The title came to be "¿Sabes Cómo Es El Amor?" and next to it appeared the original title in brackets ("Have you Ever Been In Love?"), so a Spanish version for this song is rumoured to have been also recorded, though it remains unreleased to this day. The date in the sheet was May/06/03, so it is not certain whether it was recorded for her 2003 "One Heart" album (probably to offer a different version of the song) or for her 2002 "A New Day Has Come" album. However, the English version was the one finally included in the "One Heart" album."Have You Ever Been in Love" was covered by Aretha Franklin for her live performances.
