Greatest Hits was the first "greatest hits" collection singer Jody Watley. Executive-produced by Watley herself, the album highlighted her MCA years (1987–1994), and contained all of her well-known pop hits, among them "Looking For a New Love", "Real Love" and "Everything"; two of Watley's classics, ""Don't You Want Me" and "Some Kind of Lover", were presented in their more familiar remixed forms. Additionally, Watley (who compiled the collection with Andy McKaie) took care to include lesser-known (but equally iconic) songs like "Still a Thrill" and "Most of All".

Greatest Hits was followed in 2000 by the less-comprehensive 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection.
