A greatest hits album (sometimes referred to as a "best of" album) is a compilation album of successful, previously released songs by a particular music artist or band. To increase the appeal of the album – especially to people who already own the previously released material – it is common to include remixes of popular songs or new material, with new songs often being released as singles (and themselves sometimes becoming successful).
