American singer and songwriter Beyonce Knowles, also known simply as Beyoncé, has released four studio albums, two extended plays, four live albums, two compilation albums, thirty-eight singles (including ten as a featured artist) and ten promotional singles. Having sold 118 million records worldwide,[1] Knowles is one of the best-selling music artists of all time; she has sold over 13 million albums in the US.[2] The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) recognized Knowles as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s decade.[3]

Knowles' career began as lead vocalist of Destiny's Child, a band which sold around 60 million records worldwide.[4] Knowles released her first solo album, Dangerously in Love (2003), during the hiatus of Destiny's Child.[5] It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and produced the singles "Crazy in Love", "Baby Boy", "Me, Myself & I", "Naughty Girl" and "The Closer I Get to You". With "Crazy in Love" and Dangerously in Love, Knowles became the first female artist—and the fifth artist ever—to top both the singles and albums charts simultaneously in the United States and the United Kingdom.[6] In 2003, "Crazy in Love" and "Baby Boy" peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for eight and nine weeks, respectively.[7] Dangerously in Love has sold 11 million copies worldwide.[8]

After the disbandment of Destiny's Child in 2005,[9] Knowles released "Check on It" featuring Slim Thug for The Pink Panther soundtrack,[10] and the single topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for five weeks.[11] It was later included on her second studio album, B'Day (2006), which produced six singles, including top-ten hits "Déjà Vu", "Irreplaceable" and "Beautiful Liar". "Ring the Alarm" became Knowles' biggest debut on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, entering at number twelve in 2006,[12] whereas "Irreplaceable" remained at the top of the same chart for ten consecutive weeks in 2006–07, becoming Knowles' longest running single at the pole position of that chart.[13] As of February 2008, B'Day had sold over 7 million copies worldwide,[14] and as of October 2012, 3.3 million copies in the US.[2]

Knowles' third album, I Am... Sasha Fierce (2008), is a dual disc album, which is intended to reflect the two facets of her personality.[15] It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart[16] and included the singles "If I Were a Boy", "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" which topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for four weeks,[17] "Halo" and "Sweet Dreams". I Am... Sasha Fierce sold 3 million paid digital downloads in the United States,[18] and the album has sold over seven million copies worldwide as of March 2011.[19] Knowles' fourth studio album, 4, was released in June 2011 and debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart, becoming her fourth consecutive number one album in the United States.[20] The album's first two singles, "Run the World (Girls)" and "Best Thing I Never Had", both reached the top ten in several charts worldwide, and the fourth single "Love on Top" topped the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for seven consecutive weeks.[21]
