The 16-track effort dropped on Friday morning through Columbia Records. It is Dion’s 12th English-language studio album and her 27th overall.
It’s been six years since the My Heart Will Go On singer released an English-spoken album, the last being 2013’s Loved Me Back to Life.
Upon release of the highly anticipated record, the 51-year-old took to social media with a message to her fans — in both English and French — telling them to enjoy it.

Courage also highlights Dion’s four most recent singles: Flying On My Own, Imperfections, Lying Down and the title track Courage.
When asked what Courage meant to her, Dion admitted that it was about finding her “inner strength” and a way for her to “keep going” after the death of her husband and manager René Angélil, who died from complications of cancer in 2016.
In response to the release of the emotional album, Dion fans rushed to social media to share their opinions.
Here’s what some Twitter users had to say about Courage:
