"Haven't Met You Yet" is the first single from Canadian singer Michael Bublé's sixth album, Crazy Love, released on August 31, 2009.[1] According to Bublé, the single and its official music video are "about everyone's dream of finding a relationship and love."[2] Bublé co-wrote "Haven't Met You Yet" with Alan Chang and Amy Foster-Gillies, and dedicated it to his wife, Luisana Lopilato (who appears as his love interest in the music video).[3]

The song has proven successful on the adult contemporary charts, reaching number one in the U.S. on the chart week of January 30, 2010[4] and becoming the first song in history to debut at number one on Billboard Canada's AC chart.[5][6] It is Bublé's third #1 single on the adult contemporary charts after "Home" and "Everything".[6] It was also a big success on the Billboard Hot 100, where the song reached #24, so far, being his highest single on the Billboard charts.[4] The song entered the United Kingdom Singles Chart on the October 18, 2009 at number 9, making it his first top 10 hit in the UK, eventually climbing up to number 5 in its third week. The song won Single of the Year at the 2010 Juno Awards and was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance at the 53rd Grammy Awards.


A clip of the song was released on The Daily Bublé on his website. The full song was available for streaming only on his official fan club, Bungalow-B[7] on August 28, 2009.[8] It was later available on iTunes on August 30[9] and then on his official page on August 31.[8][10]

Critical reception

The song received favourable reviews. Patrick McKiernan from the website Allgigs.co.uk gave the song 4 out of 5 stars, saying, "The lyrical structure is not too far from his comfort zone but is still engaging enough to pay attention to but it's actually the music I think is great. The piano is jaunty and upbeat and has some very beautiful, understated string arrangement that matches his vocal charm perfectly and the song even has a great bit of bugle at the bridge."[11] The song was one of the album's track pick from the AllMusic review. Nick Levine from Digital Spy gave the song 3 out of 5 stars, saying: "'Haven't Met You Yet' is a toe-tapping pop tune with lavish production—the strings swell in all the right places, the brass parps perkily—and lyrics so shamelessly romantic Barry Manilow could sing them. It's cheesy as a quesadilla and too chirpy by half, but if this sort of thing pushes your guilty pleasure button, it's probably best to enjoy it while you can".[12]

Music video

A promotional video was released a few days after the release of the song in digital format at his official site on September 5, 2009.[13] It showed Bublé at a photo shoot wearing a dark brown jacket against a white background. The video revolves around him in the photo shoot session.[14]

The full music video was directed by Rich Lee and was released on October 1, 2009. The video is about Bublé in a supermarket (Killarney Market on 49th Avenue in Vancouver, Canada, in the Killarney neighbourhood). After meeting a blonde woman (Luisana Lopilato) in an aisle, all the customers, staff, and a cameo appearance by the West Vancouver Youth Band,[15] start dancing around the store in celebration, eventually moving outside to the parking lot as confetti descends. The video then cuts to Bublé at the cash register with the cashier handing him his receipt while he is still seemingly lost in daydreams. An embarrassed Bublé then takes the receipt and walks out with everyone staring at him. As he is about to exit the supermarket, he sees the blonde woman from his daydream walking into the supermarket. He glances at her and walks out of the supermarket perplexed. After filming the video Bublé and Lopilato became engaged and were married on March 31, 2011, in Argentina.[16][17]


The song begins in C♯ Major / D♭ Major,[18] and at the 2:15 mark, the key signature changes to D♯ Major / E♭ Major[19] throughout the rest of the song.

video icon "Russian Unicorn" — the video from Bad Lip Reading, which Michael claimed was "one of the coolest things he's ever seen"[24] at YouTube.com

During the January 30, 2010 episode of Saturday Night Live, in which Bublé is the musical guest, he appeared in a commercial parody for a restaurant that host Jon Hamm has opened called "Hamm and Bublé" that exclusively serves dishes featuring pork (ham) and champagne (bubbly - a deliberate mispronunciation of Bublé). While Bublé sings alternate lyrics to the melody of "Haven't Met You Yet" that reflects the restaurant's theme, it becomes obvious that Hamm is holding Bublé against his will, forcing him to sing and perform non-musical shows.

The song was performed as a group by the cast of American Idol during the March 12 results show of the ninth season.[25]

In September 2010 nearly a thousand students from the University of Victoria, Canada shot a lip dub featuring "Haven't Met You Yet". The lip dub was mentioned on CBC News: The National and covered extensively from local news outlets. On October 27, Michael Bublé posted a link of the "impressive" video to his Facebook page. The video reached over 100,000 views on YouTube in less than a week after being released online on October 22. The lip dub was made in response to the viral 'UVic' (Universitat de Vic from Spain) "Hey, Soul Sister" lip dub that many, including celebrity blogger Perez Hilton,[26] mistakenly believed came from the Canadian 'UVic'. Michael Bublé expressed interest in being a part of the lip dub, but due to scheduling conflicts was unable to be in Victoria, British Columbia at the time of shooting.

On July 11, 2011 a YouTube channel called Bad Lip Reading did another type of lip dub-recording over the music video using an entirely new song, called "Russian Unicorn", unrelated musically to the original, with lyrics that matched Bublé's lip movements. For example, the new song changed the original line "We can work to work it out" to "We could shoot a Russian unicorn."[27] Bublé mentioned it in an interview, saying it was his new favourite song.[28] He said it was "one of the coolest things I've ever seen" and called the maker "an evil genius."[24]

In October 24, 2016, Riley Elmore covered this song the knockout on The Voice Season 11.

Chart performance

In its first week, "Haven't Met You Yet" debuted at number 65 with only digital downloads to promote it. Simultaneously, it debuted at number 33 on the Hot Digital Songs chart, number 22 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks, and the top five in Canada. The week of January 30, 2010, the song reached number 40 (becoming his first Top 40 hit) after several months on the chart. It has become his highest-charting song yet ("Everything" reached number 46), reaching number 24 in its 34th week on the chart. It is also his best charting song in the Mainstream Top 40, where it peaked at number 21. It also became his third number-one on the Adult Contemporary charts. Meanwhile, on the UK Singles Chart, he scored his first top ten single after debuting at number nine. In its third week, it climbed to number five, making it his first top five hit and highest ever entry in the United Kingdom.[29]
