This Is the Remix is a remix album by American R&B group Destiny's Child. Released in the United States on March 12, 2002 by Columbia Records, the album contains a blend of R&B and dance remixes from the band's previously released three albums Destiny's Child (1998), The Writing's on the Wall (1999) and Survivor (2001) as well as solo material. The album's name is a self-explanatory message taken from the first track "No, No, No Part 2".

Upon its release, the album reached number 19 on the US Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and entered the top thirty of the Billboard 200, while reaching the top ten of the New Zealand Albums Chart. Critical reception was generally positive with Allmusic remarking that "these versions aren't only different; usually, they're better than the originals."[4]

Background[edit]

The album is a collection of remixes of Destiny's Child and some bonus tracks. It is notable for containing several resung remixes. The first of these resung remixes "No, No, No (Part II)" is present on this collection. Other major urban remixes that have been resung include "Bootylicious (Rockwilder Remix), "Bug A Boo" (Refugee Camp Remix), "Emotion (Neptunes Remix)", and "Say My Name (Timbaland Remix)", which is even an entirely different composition. The album also collects the "Survivor (Remix)" which features Da Brat.

The album features dance remixes mainly remixed by Maurice Joshua. His remixes on this album include "Bills, Bills, Bills" (Maurice's Xclusive Livegig Mix)", "Nasty Girl (Azza's Nu Soul Mix)", and "So Good (Maurice's Soul Remix)", with the latter having re-recorded vocals. The album also contains a dance/rhythmic remix of "Dot (E-Poppi Mix)" (the original was featured on the "Charlie's Angels Soundtrack"). There is also a remix medley of "Jumpin' Jumpin'" that blends the "So So Def Remix" of the song featuring original members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson with the "Maurice's Jumpin Retro Mix", which contains vocals by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin.
