From Sony Legacy's Playlist series comes Playlist: The Very Best of Deborah Cox, a collection of several original versions of the R&B singer's biggest hits padded with a host of different remix and dance versions. Those seeking her 1998 chart-topper "We Can't Be Friends," or the 2002 club hit "Absolutely Not," won't be disappointed, but her initial breakout hit, "Sentimental," appears here only in "smooth mix" form. In spite of all the alternate versions, this hits package does span the length of Cox's career from her debut as a Clive Davis protégé' to her 2007 release The Promise.
