[i][b]GHV2[/b][/i] (an abbreviation of [i]Greatest Hits Volume 2[/i]) is the second greatest hits compilation album by American singer-songwriter [URL=]Madonna[/URL], released on November 12, 2001, by [URL=]Maverick Records[/URL]. It contains a collection of hits from 1992 to 2001, selected by Madonna who mentioned that she only wanted "[i]songs that I could listen to five times in a row"[/i] included on it. It was a follow-up to [i][URL=]The Immaculate Collection[/URL][/i] (1990) and was released to coincide with the live home video, [i][URL=]Drowned World Tour 2001[/URL][/i]. The album did not contain any new recordings, but a promotional single "GHV2 Megamix" was released to promote it with mixes by [URL=]Thunderpuss[/URL], John Rocks & Mac Quayle and Tracy Young.

The album was originally titled [i]Greatest Hits: The Second Coming[/i], but Madonna decided to name it change the name to [i]GHV2[/i] just before it was released as "it's a title you will remember" and also because of "laziness", due to the fact that she had just finished the [URL=]Drowned World Tour[/URL] and was about to begin filming [i][URL=]Swept Away[/URL][/i]. Other titles considered were [i]Hit Lady – Greatest Hits Volume 2[/i] and [i]The Immaculate Collection Part Deux[/i]. The compilation was released on the eleventh anniversary of [i][URL=]The Immaculate Collection[/URL][/i], featuring a selection of hits ranging from "[URL=]Erotica[/URL]" (1992) to "[URL=]What It Feels Like for a Girl[/URL]" (2001). Madonna felt that because it was a "greatest hits", it should only contain previously released hit songs.

In an interview with [URL=]BBC[/URL]'s [URL=]Jo Whiley[/URL], Madonna said about the selection of the [i]GHV2[/i] tracks, "[i]I only wanted songs that I could listen to five times in a row."[/i] Like [i][URL=]The Immaculate Collection[/URL][/i], there were many other popular singles excluded. "[URL=]American Pie[/URL]", which was a big hit, was excluded as a "punishment", because Madonna regretted putting it on [i]Music[/i]. "It was something a certain record company executive twisted my arm into doing, but it didn't belong on the album so now it's being punished," she said.

The cover picture is from a 2001 photo shoot for the [URL=]Drowned World Tour[/URL], by [URL=]Regan Cameron[/URL]. The logo in the right corner says "Madonna", and "GHV2". The Japanese lettering (モヂジラミミヂ) is the result of typing the letters 'M-A-D-O-N-N-A' on an English keyboard but with the keys re-mapped to their positions on a Japanese 'kana' keyboard. It can be pronounced as "Mo-Ji-Ji-Ra-Mi-Mi-Ji" and does not mean anything in Japanese. The proper translation for Madonna is: マドンナ. "GHV2" can also be seen on the cover picture on Madonna's eye. Kevin Reagan contributed artwork to the inner sleeve. A special edition of [i]GHV2[/i], featuring the same track listing, but some additional artwork, was released in December 2001. Hidden in the inner sleeve album artwork of both editions of GHV2 is a quote from "Human Nature": [i]"Express Yourself, Don't Repress Yourself."[/i]

[b]Critical reception[/b]
The compilation received generally positive reviews. [URL=]Allmusic[/URL] writer [URL=]Stephen Thomas Erlewine[/URL] said "During the '90s, Madonna was a true album artist, even as she was making singles as tremendous as "Take a Bow," "Deeper and Deeper," "Ray of Light," "Don't Tell Me," and the non-LP "Beautiful Stranger". Taken on their own, most of these are still pretty tremendous, but tossed together on [i]GHV2[/i], the end result is less than the sum of its parts, even if this is a good way to get all of Madge's '90s hits at once." [URL=]Robert Christgau[/URL] said that "she gleans goodies from the overrated [i]Bedtime Stories[/i] and [i]Ray of Light[/i], mixes in the glorious soundtrack-only "Beautiful Stranger" and the dismal soundtrack-only "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," and hands it all over to Mirwais for sonic tweaking I'm not interested enough to pin down", while calling it as "an essential package." [URL=]PopMatters[/URL] said "Chronological sequencing would have made it easier to follow the course of Madonna’s musical evolution. But would these changes have made [i]GHV2[/i] a significantly better album? Probably not. As it stands, it’s the best summary of Madonna’s second decade as a performer we’re going to get—at least until a massive box set appears.
