Wiz Khalifa discography

American rapper Wiz Khalifa has released six studio albums, one soundtrack album, one extended play (EP), thirty-seven singles (including twenty-two as a featured artist), sixteen promotional singles, fourteen mixtapes, and thirty-four music videos. After signing to independent record label Rostrum Records at a young age, Khalifa began to attract national attention following the release of his first mixtape Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania. He also released his first studio album, Show and Prove (2006), which received critical acclaim from several major music publications. The success of Show and Prove led Warner Bros. Records to sign Khalifa in 2007 as part of a joint deal with Rostrum. Whilst at Warner, Khalifa released the singles "Youngin' on His Grind" and "Say Yeah". The latter became his first song to appear on a Billboard chart, peaking at number 20 on the US Hot Rap Songs chart. However, following disagreements with Warner over the release of a purported major-label debut album, Khalifa departed from the label and released his second studio album Deal or No Deal, in 2009 on Rostrum Records alone.

In April 2010, Khalifa released a mixtape, Kush & Orange Juice, which acquired widespread attention after topping Google's Hot Search Trends list: this brought Khalifa to the attention of Atlantic Records, who promptly signed him. Khalifa's first single for the label, "Black and Yellow", achieved significant commercial success in the United States, peaking at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and also peaking in the top ten of both the Canadian and United Kingdom singles charts. The song was later certified 6x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for digital download shipments exceeding 6,000,000 copies. The International Hit "Black and Yellow" appeared on Khalifa's first studio album for Atlantic (and third overall), Rolling Papers, which peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA. Three further singles from Rolling Papers, Billboard Singles "Roll Up", "On My Level" – a collaboration with fellow rapper Too Short – and "No Sleep" also charted in the United States. In 2011, Khalifa recorded many collaborations with other artists that proved to be commercially successful, including "5 O'Clock" with T-Pain and Lily Allen, and "Young, Wild & Free" with Snoop Dogg. Both of these songs reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

In 2012, Khalifa's fourth studio album, O.N.I.F.C., was preceded by the release of the singles "Work Hard, Play Hard" and "Remember You", which both charted in the top 75 of the Billboard Hot 100. Several other songs from O.N.I.F.C. also charted upon the album's release. "Let It Go" featuring Akon debuted and peaked at number 87 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following the release of "Work Hard, Play Hard", Khalifa collaborated with pop rock band Maroon 5 on the single "Payphone", which reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and entered the top ten of many other national charts, including those of Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland. "Payphone" was particularly successful on the UK Singles Chart, where it became Khalifa's first single to top the chart. Following its release in the United States on December 4, 2012, O.N.I.F.C. charted at number two on the Billboard 200 and topped both the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts. Blacc Hollywood followed in 2014 and included the single "We Dem Boyz", which peaked at number 43 on the Billboard Hot 100. Khalifa, his sixth studio album, was released on February 5, 2016 and contained the single Bake Sale.
