GHV2 (an abbreviation of Greatest Hits Volume 2) is the second greatest hits compilation album by American recording artist Madonna. It was released on November 12, 2001, by Maverick Records and distributed by Warner Bros. Records. The compilation contains a collection of singles from 1992 to 2001 selected by Madonna, who mentioned that she only included "songs that I could listen to five times in a row" on it. It was a follow-up to The Immaculate Collection (1990) and was released to coincide with the video album, Drowned World Tour 2001. The album did not contain any new songs, but a promotional single, "GHV2 Megamix", was released to promote it, with remixes by Thunderpuss, John Rocks & Mac Quayle and Tracy Young. Another remix album was released alongside, titled GHV2 Remixed: The Best of 1991–2001.
