Best of Hilary Duff is the first greatest hits album by American recording artist Hilary Duff. It was released on November 11, 2008, by Hollywood Records. The 12-track album consists of eight of Duff’s previous singles, as well as two new recordings: “Reach Out” and “Holiday”, and two remixes to the songs. Only one single was released from the album, the Ryan “Alias” Tedder-produced “Reach Out”, which became her third single to chart at number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play. Despite being a greatest hits album, her singles “Someone’s Watching Over Me”, “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “Beat of My Heart” aren’t included in the standard edition of the album.

Duff confirmed that she had collaborated with a rapper called Prophet on a previously unheard song on the Dignity tour’s set list, “Reach Out” in September 2007. In an interview with remix producer Joe Bermudez in November 2007, she said that Dignity would be re-released in a CDVU+ edition featuring remixes of the original songs alongside two new tracks: “Reach Out” and “Holiday”. Duff said she hoped to write a third new song for the re-release, and to have “Holiday” released as its first or second single; However, Hollywood Records scrapped the plans adding to their large list of cancelations, which in turn led Duff to make the decision to leave the label and develop Best of Hilary Duff to quickly end her contract, which had expected one more album.

Unlike Duff’s first compilation album Most Wanted (2005), which was advertised as strictly a compilation, Best of was strictly advertised as a greatest hits, making it her first.
