SWV Greatest Hits (Simitar) album contains many of their biggest hits, a few select album tracks and remixes, plus three songs that were previously unreleased. Some of the remix selections replace more popular versions of the songs - such as "I'm So Into You" and "Downtown." "Right Here" is featured in its more popular "Human Nature" remix form, however it is the version included on The Remixes which contains more vocals from Michael Jackson than the original radio version, and "You're The One" is only featured as a remix that is highly altered from the original and includes multiple rappers. Also, although it is not noted anywhere on the packaging, the radio version of "Weak" is included, rather than the album version, the only difference being that the ad-libs and backing vocals at the end are changed.
