#1's is a compilation album released by R&B group Destiny's Child containing songs from their albums The Writing's on the Wall, Survivor, This Is the Remix, and Destiny Fulfilled. Although it contains "No, No, No Part II", the version used is a shortened form of the extended remix featured on their remix album, meaning that no actual song from their self-titled debut was used.

It was released on October 25, 2005, charting at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart and number six on the UK Albums Chart. It is the best selling greatest-hits album by a female group and it was the group's first album to reach number one album in the United States after 2001's Survivor.

Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[3]
Pitchfork Media (7.2/10)[4]
Slant Magazine 3.5/5 stars[5]
Sputnikmusic 3.5/5 stars[2]
Yahoo! Music 7/10 stars[6]

Andy Kellman from Allmusic rated #1's four and a half stars out of five and wrote "the disc reaffirms that Destiny's Child released some of the biggest R&B singles of the late '90s and early 2000s."[3] Slant Magazine's Sal Cinquemani criticized the album's title because only four of the singles — "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Say My Name", "Independent Women Part I" and "Bootylicious" — reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. However, Cinquemani praised Destiny's Child's "impressive output, which includes some of the most recognizable R&B hits of the past bling/celly/status-obsessed five years".[5] John A. Hanson of Sputnikmusic rated the album 3.5 out of 5 and summarized, "The album hits you with recognizable hit after recognizable hit, and they are all pretty much as perfect as contemporary R&B-pop gets."[2] Yahoo! Music's Hattie Collins wrote, "Despite the low-points, this is a Destiny's Child must have collection of classics from one of R&B's most significant talents."[6]

Chart performance[edit]

#1's debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts of November 12, 2005,[7][8] and sold 113,000 copies that week.[9] The compilation has sold 1.1 million copies in the U.S. by the spring of 2006 according to Nielsen SoundScan and over 1.3 million as of 2011.

In Japan, #1's debuted at number one, selling 154,000 copies in its first week and was eventually certified double platinum, selling over 750,000 copies. Worldwide the album has sold 3.5 million copies and became the best-selling greatest-hits album by an all female group.[citation needed]

In the week of Beyoncé Knowles' 4th studio album 4 reaching No. 1 in the UK in July 2011, #1's climbed from No. 111 back to No. 54 in the album's 42nd charting week.[11]
