The discography of Britney Spears, an American pop music singer, consists of six studio albums, three compilation albums, thirty singles and six video albums. In 1997, Spears signed a recording contract with Jive and released her debut studio album, ...Baby One More Time, in January 1999. The album opened at number one on the Billboard 200 and went on to be certified fourteen-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and three-times platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. It features the global hit single "...Baby One More Time", which notably topped the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart and is one of the best-selling records of all time in Britain, "(You Drive Me) Crazy" and the British number-one hit "Born to Make You Happy". Sixteen months later after the release of ...Baby One More Time, Spears released her second album, Oops!... I Did It Again, which became the fastest-selling album ever by a female act in the USA with over 1.3 million copies sold in its opening week.

"BEYONCE KNOWLES"

Knowles' music is generally contemporary R&B, but she also incorporates pop, funk, hip hop, and soul genres into her work. While she almost exclusively releases English songs, Knowles did record several Spanish records for the re-release of B'Day. Destiny's Child had already recorded a Spanish song and received favorable responses from their Latin fans. Her discography, as a solo artist, began in 2003 and includes three studio albums, twenty singles as a lead artist, ten as a featured artist, ten soundtrack and promotional singles, two live albums, one extended play and eight video albums. In June 2003, during the hiatus of Destiny's Child, Knowles released her debut solo album, Dangerously in Love, which became one of the most successful albums of that year, and signaled her viability as a solo artist. The album was a commercial and critical success, spawning the worldwide hits "Crazy in Love", "Baby Boy", "Me, Myself & I" and "Naughty Girl". Knowles became the first female artist (and the fifth artist ever) to top both the singles—with "Crazy in Love"— and albums chart simultaneously in the United States and the United Kingdom, following The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, and Men at Work. Beyoncé is currently the only artist in history to have all her studio albums win the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B Album, and debut at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 throughout her solo music career.

In 2001, aided by the extreme popularity of the music video for "Whenever, Wherever", Shakira broke through into the English-speaking world with the release of Laundry Service, which sold over 13 million copies worldwide. Four years later, Shakira released two album projects called Fijación Oral Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation Vol. 2. Both reinforced her success, particularly with the best selling song of the 2000s, "Hips Don't Lie". She has won two Grammy Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards, twelve Billboard Latin Music Awards and has been Golden Globe-nominated. She is also the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, and the second most successful female Latin singer after Gloria Estefan, having sold over 60 million albums worldwide according to Sony Music. Shakira's "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", was chosen as the official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, along with its Spanish language version, titled "Waka Waka (Esto es África)". The song has received generally positive critical reception, and has become a worldwide smash hit, selling more than 4 million copies worldwide, becoming the biggest selling World Cup song of all time.

Her six number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 tie her for fifth among the female solo performers who have reached #1 there.

By the end of the 1990s, she was named the second most successful recording artist of the decade. All for You (2001), became her fifth consecutive studio album to hit number one on the Billboard 200 album charts. Having sold over 100 million records worldwide, Jackson is ranked as one of the best-selling artists in the history of contemporary music. She has amassed an extensive catalog of hits, with singles such as "Nasty", "Rhythm Nation", "That's the Way Love Goes", "Together Again" and "All for You" among her most iconic. Her longevity, records and achievements reflect her influence in shaping and redefining the scope of popular music. She has been cited as an inspiration among numerous performers.
