• Madonna’s third Greatest Hits compilation (after The Immaculate Collection and 93:99) was released in September 2009
  • A single disc and double disc edition were released
  • A double DVD set was also released featuring Madonna’s music videos
  • In Belgium a ‘censored’ edition was released without ‘Frozen’ due to the restrictions at the time. In 2005, a judge in Belgium ruled that “Frozen” was plagiarized from a song by Salvatore Acquaviva, and it was banned from the region. This ruling was overturned in 2014, lifting the Belgium ban on the song
  • ‘Celebration’ was the first single off of the album, a preview could be heard during the 2009 leg of the Sticky & Sweet Tour in the intro to ‘Holiday’
  • There were two separate music videos for the single, one featuring various fans and Lola dressed up as ‘Like a Virgin’ Madonna
  • ‘Revolver’ was the second single, the ‘One Love Club’ mix bij Afrojack and David Guetta won the Grammy for ‘Best Remixed Recording’
  • Both ‘Revolver’ and ‘Celebration’ were performed live on Madonna’s MDNA Tour
  • The cover artwork was created by Mr. Brainwash

Release date: September 17, 2009 (Holland, world premiere FAME Amsterdam)
