GHV2 (an abbreviation of Greatest Hits Volume 2) is the second greatest hits compilation album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on November 12, 2001, by Maverick Records. It contains a collection of songs from 1992 to 2001, selected by Madonna who mentioned that she only wanted "songs that I could listen to five times in a row" included on it. As a result, the album includes several singles which were not big hits, like "Bedtime Story", "Human Nature", "What It Feels like for a Girl" and "Drowned World/Substitute for Love", and omits other releases like "American Pie", "I'll Remember", "You'll See" and "This Used to Be My Playground". It was a follow-up to The Immaculate Collection (1990) and was released to coincide with the live home video, Drowned World Tour 2001. The album did not contain any new recordings, but a promotional single "GHV2 Megamix" was released to promote it with mixes by Thunderpuss, John Rocks & Mac Quayle and Tracy Young.
The album was originally titled Greatest Hits: The Second Coming but was changed prior to its release as Madonna wanted it to have a title which was memorable. The RIAA certified it Gold and Platinum on December 12, 2001, denoting one million shipments in the United States. Worldwide, the album has sold more than seven million units. A promotional only remix album, GHV2 Remixed: The Best of 1991–2001, was released to accompany it.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
