|Kylie Minogue chronology|
"Hits+" is the second compilation album by Kylie Minogue, which was released on 7 November 2000 by Deconstruction Records. The album was the last compilation album which was released by the record label at the time, because Kylie had released her then Parlophone album Light Years (2000). The album peaked at number sixty-three in Australia on the ARIA albums chart.
The album missed the top forty in the UK, only peaking at number forty-one on the UK Albums Chart. According to Kylie, the reason why it was a real disappointment was the album is seen merely as a "cash in" on the part of Kylie's former record company.
It was announced that Kylie would release a compilation with her songs from Deconstruction Records. The album was entitled Hits+. There was an original artwork cover, but this was later scrapped and released another cover. The used cover is from a 1995 session made by Michael Williams, which also was used on a 1996 calendar.
"If You Don't Love Me" was originally recorded by British group Prefab Sprout for their 1992 album A Life of Surprises. The drum sample that runs throughout the whole song "Take Me with You" was originally performed on the song "Path of the Right Love" from Gloria Estefan's 1996 album Destiny. The use of the sample remains uncredited.
The compilation is made up of songs from the albums Kylie Minogue (1994) and Impossible Princess (1998). The album includes all seven singles released during the time Kylie was under Deconstruction Records but does not include the Australian only single "Cowboy Style". The international release of Hits+ contains only 15 tracks, lacking "This Girl" and just 14 tracks in the U.S. and China, where "Where the Wild Roses Grow" was also omitted.
