Greatest Hits was the North American counterpart to the international album, Singles of the 90s. Greatest Hits was released by Arista Records in March 2000, fulfilling their contractual obligations with the group and ending their relationship.
It contained a track error on "The Sign" (which cut one second from the beginning of the song) and only one new track, "C'est La Vie (Always 21)", which was also featured on Singles Of The 90s along with two other new tracks. "Life Is a Flower", which was previously withheld from the Cruel Summer album in favor of "Whenever You're Near Me" for being "too European in nature" was made available to American audiences for the first time on this compilation. A remix of the song "Everytime It Rains" was released to US radio outlets in March 2000 as the only form of promotion for the album. The song failed to gain airplay and with no additional promotion, the album failed to enter the Billboard U.S. album charts, selling fewer than 5,000 copies in its first week of release. It was the first Ace of Base album to fail to chart. Greatest Hits is not available in the US via iTunes; however, Singles of the 90s is.
