To highlight the quarter century of this album, which is among the best-selling in the world, producer Vito Luprano spoke with TVA Nouvelles and recalls some memories of his meeting with Celine Dion.

Here are five trivia about the recording of “Let’s Talk About Love”:

1. René Angélil did not want to record “The Reason”

The famous agent and husband of Celine Dion apparently did not agree with the idea of ​​recording the song “The Reason”, according to Vito Luprano.


“René didn’t want to do it, he didn’t think it was a big hit. Me, what excited me about this song is that it made me think of the Beatles”, he explains.

This is also the favorite song of the producer of the album.

2. The meeting Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion

The recording of “Tell Him” by the two divas with sublime voices was special, recalls Mr. Luprano.


“It was very exciting and Barbra was a little embarrassed and, at the same time, she looked at Celine very, very seriously and thought she had an incredible style and technique,” ​​says the producer.

3. Death of Princess Diana

The death of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997, occurred during the recording of the album and shook Celine Dion.

“It happened while we were in the studio. Celine was a big fan of Princess Diana,” says Vito Luprano.

4. Convince Luciano Pavarotti

The producer remembers having to convince the famous opera singer himself to do a duet with Celine Dion.


“I had to pick him up at his house to get him to agree to do the duet and when we did that, for me it was incredible. I thought of my mother because she spoke of Pavarotti like a giant,” says Vito Luprano.

5. “My Heart Will Go On” and “Titanic”

The recording of the movie’s theme song “Totanic” played a big role in the worldwide success of the album “Let’s Talk About Love”.

The producer also believes that “the song helped the movie and the movie helped the song” for the two to become a success both at the box office and on the music charts.

The song “My Heart Will Go On” as we know it is also the “demo” of the song.


“Céline put everything into it,” says Vito Luprano. So much so that the producers decided there was no need to re-record the song and it would be used as is.

This song also convinced the producer of the album that he had a success with this new disc by Celine Dion.

“That’s when I heard my heart Will Go Onthat’s when i thought it would be this big [que Falling Into You]“, says Mr. Luprano.
