"Pour que tu m'aimes encore" (meaning "So That You'll Love Me Again") is the first hit single from "D'eux" album by Céline Dion. It was released on March 13 1995 in Francophone countries and in September 1995 in other European countries. In Canada it was a radio only release. The song was also released in Japan in October 1996. [cite book | author=Glatzer, Jenna| title=Céline Dion: For Keeps | publisher=Andrews McMeel Publishing| year=2005 | id=ISBN 0-7407-5559-5]

. It's one of Céline Dion's signature songs.

The music video was directed by Michel Meyer (1995) and can be found on Céline Dion's DVD called "On ne change pas" (2005).

An English version of this song, with a modified English lyrics and title, called "If That's What It Takes" was featured on the "Falling into You" album.

"Pour que tu m'aimes encore" received a Félix Award for the Most Popular Song of the Year, Victoire De La Musique for Best Song of the Year, and Trophée Radio France International/Conseil Francophone De La Chanson.

Live versions of "Pour que tu m'aimes encore" became a part of Dion's later albums: "Live à Paris" and "Au cœur du stade". The song was also featured on two collections: "The Collector's Series, Volume One" and "On ne change pas".

A version with the 500 Choristes was included on their "500 Choristes Avec" album in 2005.

Dion performed this song five nights a week during her show "A New Day..." at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, and lately during her 2008-09 Taking Chances Tour.

"Pour que tu m'aimes encore" became a smash hit in France, where it topped the singles chart for 12 weeks, and sold 955,000 copies (platinum award). It spent 15 weeks at the top in Belgium Wallonia and 4 weeks in Quebec. "Pour que tu m'aimes encore" also reached top 10 in the United Kingdom and Ireland, which was an exceptional achievement for a French song.

"Pour que tu m'aimes encore" was covered by the operatic pop group Il Divo in November 2005, on their second album "Ancora". In November 2006, the music producer Antonis Karalis released his debut worldwide single "To Be Continued" with the Greek version of "Pour que tu m'aimes encore," called "S'Agapo Sa Trelos." The tune has a rock arrangement that combines baglamas and electric guitars. In May 2007, Elena Paparizou released her new single "Fos" with another Greek version of the song called "An Esy M'agapas."
