Grandes Éxitos (English: Greatest Hits) is the first greatest hits album by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira. It was released on November 2, 2002, by Sony Music International and Columbia Records, one year after her fifth studio album and English-language debut Laundry Service. It is composed of Spanish-language recordings from her third and fourth studio efforts Pies Descalzos (1995) and Dónde Están los Ladrones? (1998), the live album MTV Unplugged (2000), and translations of tracks from Laundry Service (2001). The album only featured Spanish-language tracks and featured no new recordings.

Upon its release, Grandes Éxitos achieved moderate commercial success, and it has sold 3 million copies worldwide.[2] it was certified double-platinum (by standards for Latin recordings) for shipments of 200,000 copies by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
