Bailamos Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album, fourth overall album from pop singer Enrique Iglesias. The album was released by Fonovisa after Iglesias had left them and signed with Interscope who promptly sued Fonovisa for using the song "Bailamos". Despite the title of Greatest Hits the album contains mostly album tracks which were never released as singles, "Nunca Te Olvidaré" and "Esperanza" were both hits for Iglesias but appear here as radically altered remixes. Also included on the album was the then rare recording of the English version of "Sólo En Ti".
Despite the album not being endorsed by Iglesias or his management the album sold reasonably well going Gold in the United States and sold over a million copies worldwide. The album was released during the period in which Iglesias was recording his English debut album and it has been speculated that many bought the album mistakenly thinking that it was his English crossover album. (An understandable mistake given the album shared its main title with Iglesias's first English crossover hit).
The album does not contribute to Iglesias's official record sales and is considered apocryphal by some fans. Not long after this release, Fonovisa released a second compilation album entitled The Best Hits.
