The discography of Melanie Chisholm, better known by her stage name Melanie C, an English pop music singer, consists of five studio albums, seventeen singles, and twenty music videos.

Melanie C debuted in 1996 as a member of the girl group the Spice Girls. The group achieved worldwide success, producing nine number-one singles in the United Kingdom and selling over 55 million records.[1] In 2001 the group took a hiatus to allow members to concentrate on their solo careers.[2]

Melanie C began her solo career in late 1998 by singing with Canadian rock singer Bryan Adams on the song "When You're Gone". Her solo debut album Northern Star was released in 1999 and reached number three in the UK albums chart and was certified triple Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). The record experienced international success; it sold over three million albums worldwide.[3] It produced five singles, two of which reached the number-one spot in the UK.[4] Chisholm's second album, Reason, was released in March 2003. The album reached number five in the UK and produced one top-ten single. Beautiful Intentions, her third album, was released in April 2005. It reached number twenty-four in the UK. The album produced three singles, only one of which charted at number ten in the UK.[4] Her most recent album, This Time, was released in April 2007 and charted at fifty-seven in the UK album chart. Of the five singles released from the album only three charted.[4]

In November, Melanie C reunited with the Spice Girls for a world tour and to release a greatest hits album.[5] She released her fifth solo album, The Sea, on 2 September 2011.[6]
