This doesn't make sense to me. After only two albums, Hillary Duff has felt the need to come out with a "Best Of" album, entitled "Most Wanted". She has some of her hit singles on it, plus 4 new tracks! :eek:

I heard this from a friend, but I found an article about it:

http://www.albumbuzz.com/duffmostwanted.shtml

But I find this quite sad, I would say 5 albums, ok maybe 3-4, would justify a best of album. But TWO?

The first two were so hit heavy, record bosses thought it would be impossible to fit all her hits onto 2 CD's after four albums, so reaeased one early.

:spit::p

I think you need at least six albums for best of.

But to answer the question: because it will sell. :)

I have not followed Duffs careers at all....however she may be in the process of moving labels or contract re-negotiation as a "Best Of" collection often signals the end of a current contract....

A "Best Of" after just 2 studio albums and 6 or 7 chart hits is indeed premature.
I am unsure who she is currently signed to in the U.S...but I wouldn't be surprised to see her next full studio album released on a totally different label.

:o Personally I thought it was 1 CD too early for a 'Best Of' theme album, but obviously they are loving it. :)


Hilary Duff is most wanted in the US!


Hilary Duff's new album, ‘Most Wanted’, is in fact the most wanted CD in America and Canada this week, debuting at #1 in both countries.

‘Most Wanted’ is Hilary’s second U.S. #1 album and first #1 album debut, and has the highest first week sales for any of her records, selling over 200,000 units in it’s first week. It is her third #1 debut in Canada. :D

‘Most Wanted’, Hilary’s third album for Hollywood Records, features four brand new songs, including the new hit single ‘Wake Up’ (in stores Sunday), alongside a collection of Hilary’s most popular tracks, completely remixed and remastered, including ‘So Yesterday’, ‘Why Not’, ‘Come Clean’, ‘Fly’ and ‘Someone’s Watching Over Me’.

Said Buena Vista Music Group Chairman Bob Cavallo, “We are delighted to announce another #1 album for Hilary. She delivered us a great single with ‘Wake Up’ which has reconfirmed her place as everyone’s favourite #1 teen star.”

Added Hilary Duff, “Wow, it’s so surreal to have a #1 debut and I feel honoured to be on top of the Billboard charts with all this great competition. I want to thank all my fans and the people who worked so hard on this record.” Andre Recke, who manages Hilary’s music career, said “It feels great when all the hard work and effort pays off with a #1 debut. Hilary is a hard worker and she deserves being #1.”

:p Most wanted indeed! :wavey:

Dont complain Paul, when bands or artists relase Best of Albums it is more often than not a signal of their demise and disaapearence. I hope.

two words - JANIS JOPLIN

(of course, any conection between this giant of a woman and this Duff lady, is totally coincidental, i'm just saying anything you say about 6 albums as a must before "best of" or anything like that is BS. you get your "best of" when there is great stuff, and best stuff. some need 5 albums to fill a 16-song album worth gold, some need 2 and 2 alone.)

Hilary Duff is not a singer. Therefore any "Best of" album is a "best of" collection of the best work of the producers.

I didn't even know she released a 2nd album :o. This girl is a HORRIBLe singer, especially live, and that's putting it nicely. Hillary should stick to acting, though she's shit at that as well. :shrug:

probably changing labels i'd say, or she/they don't have any more ideas for songs for her, but generally bst of cds happen when the artist is at the end of a contract and changing labels. and i'd say this is probably because they dont want to make her a whole new album then allowing her next label to mooch off it and get the profits from a best of album.

WHY ? Because her record company knows what will sell. AKA #1 album of the week.
Hillary also updated her hits from the previous 2 cds by laying down new vocals for the tracks and recorded 4 new songs...all of which will probobly be released in some form or another.

Ps...the current single WAKE UP (hollywood) was the highest single debut of the week at #29.... :kiss:

Her fans were mostly little kids who are getting to old to listen to her cheese, so she might aswell cash in while she still can.
