"Greatest Hits" is a greatest hits album by Lenny Kravitz, released in October 2000 (see 2000 in music). The album featured an unreleased track for promotion called "Again".

Kravitz reported in an interview for VivaMusic.com [cite web |url=http://www.lenny-kravitz.com/interviewvivamusic.html |title=Lenny Kravitz Grammy Awards! |accessdate=2006-09-22 |work=Lenny-Kravitz.com] that the selection of the songs were led by his record company, Virgin Records, which only chose the songs that were successful on the charts. The tracks were sequenced by Kravitz's engineer, Henry Hirsch.

The album reached #2 on the Billboard 200 and #12 on the UK Album Chart. As of March 2008, "Greatest Hits" has sold 4.5 million units in the U.S, approximately 10.5 million in worldwide sales, the biggest selling album in Lenny's career to date.
