The Greatest Hits is the second European compilation album by American singer-actress Cher, released on November 30, 1999 by Warner Music U.K.'s WEA label. The album was very successful worldwide, it peaked at #7 on the official UK Albums Chart, and reached the top 10 as well as #1 in several countries across Europe and the rest of the world. This compilation was not available in the United States, due to the release of the US-only compilation, If I Could Turn Back Time: Cher's Greatest Hits which was released that same year.
