LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - A new Janet Jackson greatest hits album, "Number Ones," will hit U.S. stores November 17.

The 34 track collection on A&M/UMe includes 33 of Jackson's hits plus one new track, "Make Me," produced by Jackson and Rodney Jerkins.

The set includes all 10 of her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles and her 16 toppers on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. According to A&M/UMe, Jackson has sold 65 million albums worldwide.

"Number Ones" will be the singer's second best-of package in the U.S., following 1995's "Design of a Decade 1986/1996." That effort peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold 2.4 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Outside the U.S., it will be titled "Janet Jackson: The Best," and be available November 23.
