Number Ones is a greatest hits album by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was released on November 17, 2003 worldwide and on November 18, 2003 in the United States by Epic Records and Sony Music. Number Ones was Jackson's first proper compilation album with Sony, after the release of HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I in 1995 (and after the re-release of that album as Greatest Hits: HIStory, Volume I a single-CD, only-hits edition in 2001). The album included Jackson singles that reportedly reached #1 in charts around the world.
Number Ones was successful around the world, originally reaching #1 in the UK and #13 in the United States. It proved to be an enduring catalog seller, eventually returning to the top spot in the UK and US charts in 2009 after Jackson's sudden death. It stayed as the number one selling album in the United States for six non consecutive weeks and for twenty-seventh week on the Top Pop Catalog Albums chart. but as a 'catalog' title, Number Ones was excluded from the Billboard 200 denying Jackson a seventh solo No.1 album on the chart. The rules preventing titles older than 18 months to chart in the Billboard 200 were subsequently changed in the fall of 2009 due to the posthumous success of Jackson and The Beatles re-mastered re-releases.
At the 2009 American Music Awards, Number Ones claimed two awards - Favorite Rock/Pop Album and Favorite Soul/Rhythm and Blues Album.
