"I Drove All Night" was chosen as the leadoff single. The original cover version of this song was recorded by Cyndi Lauper in 1989. A version by Roy Orbison, of whom the song was originally aimed, was aired in 1992. Dion's recording became a hit, reaching number 1 in Canada, Belgium and Sweden.
Although "Have You Ever Been in Love" was already featured on Dion's previous album A New Day Has Come, it was released as the second single from One Heart in the United States and third in selected countries. The title track promoted the album as the second single outside the United States. There were also two radio releases at the end of 2003: "Stand by Your Side" (United States) and "Faith" (Canada).
A song called "Reveal" was written by Cathy Dennis who also wrote "Toxic" for Britney Spears and "Can't Get You out of My Head" for Kylie Minogue among others. "Sorry for Love (2003 version)" was actually an original version of the song. The dance version was released a year earlier, on A New Day Has Come. Already available on the A New Day Has Come 2002 special limited edition, "Coulda Woulda Shoulda" was included also here. The last track on the album, called "Je t'aime encore" was recorded also in French and included on Céline Dion's next album 1 fille & 4 types.
In the United States, "I Drove All Night," "Have You Ever Been in Love," "One Heart," and "Love Is All We Need" were used, from 2003 to 2004, in an advertising campaign for DaimlerChrysler.
Thanks to One Heart Céline Dion won an American Music Award for Favorite Artist in the Adult Contemporary category, in November 2003.
In June 2004, a bonus DVD called One Year... One Heart was incuded on some editions of A New Day... Live in Las Vegas, containing the recording of "I Drove All Night" and "Have You Ever Been in Love," and the making of "One Heart" music video among other features.
The album sold 431,657 copies in the United States during the first week. It opened at number 2 and went down to number 4 the following week. To date, One Heart sold 2 millions copies (2x platinum certification) in the United States. In Canada, the album debuted at number 1 with 97,000 copies sold, Dion's eight number 1 album in her native country, but went down to number 2 the following week with 37,000 sold.
