Greatest Hits is the first compilation album by the British girl group Eternal, released in October 1997. The album contains their fourteen consecutive Top 15 hit singles, which at the time was an unprecedented record for a British girl group. Louise Nurding's vocals appeared on the album, however she was not featured on the cover. The album peaked at number 2 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified 3x Platinum by the BPI for sales of over 900,000 copies.

In January 2014, following the announcement of the group's reformation for the second series of ITV reality show The Big Reunion, the album entered at number 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart.
