Jamelia discography

The discography of Jamelia, a British R&B singer, consists of three studio albums, one greatest hits album, and fourteen singles, fifteen music videos, and one live DVD of a concert performance. She has contributed to the albums of two other artists, and appeared on two soundtrack albums. Jamelia signed with Capitol Records in 1996, and her debut single, "So High", was released on 3 May 1999. It failed to chart and she left the record company before an album was released. Later that year, Jamelia released "I Do" with Parlophone, which was followed up in 2000 with her first top five single, titled "Money", and her debut album Drama.

Jamelia's second album, Thank You, released in 2003, is her most successful to date, peaking at number 4 on the United Kingdom Albums Chart, at number 16 in New Zealand, and at number 21 in Ireland. It also charted in Australia and mainland Europe, but in much lower positions. The album's lead singles were "Bout", a reggae-style song that features a rap from Rah Digga, and pop/dance song "Superstar". "Bout" charted at 37 on the UK Singles Chart, but "Superstar" fared much better, entering the singles chart at number 8 and climbing to number 3, its peak position, after four weeks. It was also the 26th best selling single of 2003. The next single taken from Thank You was the title track, which peaked at number 2 in the UK. Both "Superstar" and "Thank You" are Jamelia's most successful single releases to date, appearing in many singles charts worldwide. Thank You was subsequently re-released with two new songs: "See It in a Boy's Eyes" and "DJ".

In 2004, Jamelia performed "Universal Prayer" with Tiziano Ferro for release on his album 111 Centoundici. The song also appears on Unity, the soundtrack for the 2004 Summer Olympics. The song was released as a single in mainland Europe, and reached number 1 in Italy. Later that year, she recorded "Stop", a cover of the 1988 song recorded by Sam Brown. It is included on the soundtrack album to the feature film The Edge of Reason, and was released as a double A-side with "DJ". At the end of 2004, Jamelia recorded an updated version of the charity record "Do They Know It's Christmas?" as a part of Band Aid 20; it became the Christmas Number One. Jamelia's third and most recent album, Walk with Me, was released in 2006. It was not as commercially popular as Thank You, reaching number 20 on the albums chart in the UK; the three singles that were released from the album also fared worse than the singles from Thank You. "Something About You" and "Beware of the Dog" peaked just inside the top 10; "No More" fell short of the top 40. Despite being labelled a "one-hit wonder" by members of the UK music industry, Jamelia has had seven singles chart inside the UK Top 10, and only three chart outside the UK Top 40.
