Celine Dion previewed her Incredible duet with Ne-Yo for her new album Loved Me Back to Life in a behind-the-scenes video released Oct. 26.
She recorded only two duets for her new record, one featuring writing and vocals by the R&B singer. Throughout the clip, neither singers nor producer Eman could stop repeating "Incredible" to describe their efforts on the track. The singers teamed up at a recording studio in Las Vegas' The Palms Hotel and Casino.
The clip began with Dion revealing that her son convinced her to collaborate with Ne-Yo and was excited about his mother working with the So Sick singer. Dion then asked Ne-Yo for help, particularly on pronunciation.
" 'Let's give them something amazing,' " she sang to him, quoting a lyric from the song. "You don't say 'something.' You gotta teach me."
"Yeah, it's 'summin',' " Ne-Yo said. "It's not even something I do on purpose. My lips are so big that they get in the way."
"Well, sometimes we wish to have lips like yours, so it's okay," Dion responded.
Ne-Yo later closed his eyes and took in how Dion performed her share of the duet. Eman told her to get more "intimate" singing the track and Ne-Yo added, "yeah cuz my soft and breath-y sucks compared to yours."
"OK, I'll try to bring the sex appeal into it," Dion jokingly responded.
Loved Me Back to Life, also featuring a duet with Stevie Wonder, comes out Nov. 5 in select countries. The album's other release dates are listed on Dion's official website.
