^ They were singles. And more importantly: they haven't been released on CD.
If a Greatest Hits CD has nothing to add to my CD collection, I don't see the use of buying it.

Hopefully, her next album will have more great R&B songs. This was promising but the ballads were so bleak and dreary!

I think that these twelve songs were enough to create this album.
1. "Faded"
2. "Dedicated" (featuring Nas)
3. "#Beautiful" (featuring Miguel)
4. "Thirsty"
5. "Make It Look Good"
6. "You're Mine (Eternal)"
7. "You Don't Know What to Do" (featuring Wale)
8. "Supernatural" (with special guest stars "Dembabies" a.k.a. Ms. Monroe & Mr. Moroccan Scott Cannon a.k.a. Roc 'N Roe)
9. "Meteorite"
10. "Money ($ * / ...)" (featuring Fabolous)
11. "Heavenly (No Ways Tired / Can't Give Up Now)"
12. "The Art of Letting Go"

Plus YDKWTD & Money both sound unfinished af.
Better mixing would've turned them into smth else.
Take Heavenly, OMT & Camo off and perfect.

Hope her album doesn't follow The Emancipation of Mimi template. She suffers the same album structure again and again (apart from Memoirs which didn't follow her usual strategy).

I'm really sick of this album at the moment. I have a playlist to help me sleep - Camouflage and Cry are on it but I always skip them.

Dedicated still bops though.

What the hell was her label thinking? Thirsty was the obvious lead/second single. Could have been huge. Such a waste opportunity. They must have been high when they decided to release You're Mine (Eternal) and The Art of Letting Go as singles.

Singles should have been like this:

1st Beautiful
2nd You Don't know what to do
3rd Faded
4th Thirsty
5th Dedicated
