International superstar Celine Dion dominates the charts with a number 1 debut

(10:00 p.m. GMT) International Superstar Celine Dion crowned the Neilsen SoundScan sales chart record for 2007 with over 72,000 copies sold of D'elles across Canada. D'elles has secured the highest SoundScan entry of the year surpassing first-week sales by any other artist. Overwhelming media and consumer support has skyrocketed D'elles to the number 1 position on the sales chart in Canada, France, Belgium and Switzerland. In Canada, the album has been certified 2x Platinum and has already shipped half a million units worldwide. In Quebec, Celine dominates the Regional chart with D'elles claiming the top spot and continues to break records with five of her previous albums currently charting in SoundScan's Top 200.

On May 21 2007, more than 1.5 million people tuned in to the TVA network for a 2-hour special about D'elles for an outstanding 82% share of the audience. During her spectacular career Celine Dion has sold a combined total of over 185 million albums making her the biggest selling female artist of all time, as presented at the 2004 World Music Awards. In Canada, eight of Celine Dion's albums have entered the chart in the number 1 position, including 1997's Let's Talk About Love, which holds the record for the highest opening week sales since the inception of the Neilsen SoundScan chart.

'A New Day...' the five year, 700-show engagement at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, has been sold out every night since its premiere on March 25, 2003 and will close on December 15, 2007. Since its opening, 'A New Day.' has attracted record crowds and continues to transport more than 4,000 audience members each night to a unique world of performance, passion and theatrical innovation, with Celine joined on stage by an elite international cast of 48 dancers. Over two-and-half million fans have experienced 'A New Day...' at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace since its debut.

Celine Dion TRIUMPHS In Canada And In France !!!!

(8:00 p.m. GMT) Celine Dion may still be in Las Vegas, but Canadians haven't forgotten about her. Dion's French-language album "D'elles" shot to the top of the Canadian album charts, selling 72,000 copies in its first week, making it the biggest debut of the year, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan Canada.

It marks her tenth No. 1 album in the SoundScan era, and her eighth to debut at the top position. Dion's high-water mark for Canadian sales remains 1997's "Let's Talk About Love," which had opening week sales of 230,000 -- a record debut which still stands to this day.

Maroon 5 had the unenviable task of going up against Dion this week, but the band managed some decent numbers themselves. Their sophomore album, "It Won't Be Soon Before Long," debuted at No. 2 with sales of 20,000. All the movement up top forced Linkin Park's "Minutes To Midnight" (18,000) out of the top spot and down to No. 3, and Claude Dubois' "Duos Dubois" from No. 3 to No. 4.

In France, Celine takes possession of the FIRST place with her new album in French produced by Jean-Jacques Goldman. Available in 3 different editions, the album sold more than 55,000 copies. Céline is followed at No. 2 by singer Mika who sold 19,000 copies of his "Life in cartoon Motion" and by Christophe Willem who came in third place with "Inventaire" (18,000 copies).

Celine & RC Featured on HELLO Magazine!!

Celine, pictured on the cover with son Rene-Charles, shares a rare glimpse into her family life in Nevada with HELLO! magazine, and reveals what she sees life being like after the end of her Las Vegas stint. I love taking care of my home, she says.

In the report the Canadian chanteuse, whose A New Day show ends on December 15, reveals how she’s looking forward to spending more time with her six-year-old son Rene-Charles and her husband of 13 years, Rene Angelil. "Before him, my vocal chords ruled my life," says the devoted mum of how little Rene has changed her life. "All I had was my voice, and I hung onto it." And the 39-year-old star doesn't rule out having more children after the family moves to a new home in Florida. "I'll do little tours with little shows… and maybe have a second child," she says. "My mother had me at 41; I'm sure I could do the same." See the exclusive photos and revealing report in Issue 39 of HELLO! magazine on Canadian newsstands from Thursday, May 31.

*More News*: A Charity Event For Saint-Justine Hospital

(6:20 a.m. GMT) A week ago, in an interview with the Canadian newspaper La Presse, Rene Angelil (Celine Dion's husband and manager) revealed that Celine will perform LIVE in a TV-Special to raise funds for Montreal's Saint-Justine Hospital. There are more news now: College Jean de Brebeuf has confirmed the hospital will be renting out the soccer field on the campus's west side, which faces the hospital, the first Saturday in August. Alain Turcotte, who is responsible for space rentals at Brebeuf, said the soccer pitch is close enough to the hospital that an audience could watch from the east-facing windows. This would be a boon for those children who can't make it outside the hospital doors.

Celine Dion's NEW Projects!!

 South Shore à Lake Las Vegas  May 21st, 2007 (7:00 a.m. GMT) Canadian fans of singer Celine Dion can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Quebec-born diva confirmed Monday that she will tour for the first time in nine years to promote her new album, D'elles, and will stop in Montreal and Toronto (and in more American cities!). While details of the shows, including dates, still have to be worked out, Dion told The Canadian Press she expects to be back in Montreal by August, 2008. “It's certain that I'll do shows in Montreal,” she said during an interview at an exclusive golf club in Lake Las Vegas (South Shore). “You know, I've travelled a lot, I've done many shows, but I haven't seen the world much. I'm going to take advantage of this world tour and my son gives a good opportunity.” Her tour will include concerts in Europe, Asia and Africa.

 South Shore à Lake Las Vegas - May 21st, 2007 Dion, who also didn't rule out additional concerts in other Canadian cities as well, leaked the news about the Canadian content of her tour during the launch of D'elles. With 13 tracks penned by female writers from Quebec and France, the album is being billed as a tribute to women. It is also her first album of new French-language material since the 2003 release of 1 fille & 4 types. Indeed the much-awaited album comes as the 39-year-old singer embarks on a new phase in her career. This December, Dion will wrap up a successful five-year run at the Las Vegas hotel Caesar's Palace. “You know, having done a project for five years, it's like wearing the same bathrobe for five years,” Dion said. “It was a security zone for me to wear this same bathrobe because it was a zone where I felt good.”

Dion has sold more than 175 million albums across the world, making her the No. 1-selling female artist of all time. She has 22 albums to her credit, including compilations. Her only break from performing came in 2000 when she was pregnant with son Rene-Charles. Along with D'elles, which hits stores in Canada on Tuesday, Dion already has an English album in the works, which she expects to be released before Christmas. “I have four recorded,” she said. “But this one won't be a concept album.” Her new French album is a follow up to her 1995 release D'eux, which sold around seven million copies worldwide.

With the huge success of D'eux, producer Jean-Jacques Goldman was brought back as musical supervisor for D'elles. Among the songwriters on the album is Nathalie Nechtschein, a young French woman with Down syndrome.“I can't say which song I like best, but I find it extraordinary to sing Nathalie Nechtschein,” Dion said. And if recording albums and embarking on a major world tour weren't enough for the working mother, Dion said she and her husband would like to have another child. “That's the best thing still to happen to me,” Dion said. “I've known 25 years of the artistic life, I still have to blossom as a woman.

Parlado al sito AllHipHop.com Snoop senza peli sulla lingua ha detto “ho fatto i beat per chiunque anche per Celine Dion e Sade. Non voglio fermarmi al rap. Il rap è facile, voglio collaborare con alcuni artisti così da poter essere ricordato anche fra 20 anni”.

Diddy' Combs, Warren G and Nate Dogg, but is eager to move out of the hip-hop genre and has already prepared songs for artists like Celine Dion and soul star Sade. He tells AllHipHop.com, "I got beats for everybody, man. I got beats for Celine Dion, and Sade. "I've got music for everybody, not just rap. Rap is easy - whoever I call, I can get, just because I'm Snoop Dogg. That's too easy (in rap). I want to reach out with some creative artists that's gonna be here 20 years from now."
