This Is the Remix is the first remix album by American recording artist Jessica Simpson, released on July 2, 2002, by Columbia Records. The album contains remixes of tracks from her first two studio albums Sweet Kisses (1999) and Irresistible (2001). The remixes were done by DJs such as Peter Rauhofer and Hex Hector. The music was influenced by various genres of electronic music, such as ambient and techno. This Is the Remix didn't include any new songs.

The album was sold at a budget price and charted at number eighteen on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums Chart. A promotional digitally remastered millennium edition in tri-fold digipack packaging was also released.[1] This remix compilation was released to increase record sales for Simpson and to help promote her album Irresistible. It went on to sell over a million copies worldwide.

The So So Def remix of the track, produced by Jermaine Dupri, features guest appearances by rapper Lil' Bow Wow and Dupri.[3]
