The discography of English boy band Blue consists of four studio albums, five compilation albums, one remix album, seventeen singles and thirteen music videos. The band originally formed in 2000 and released three studio albums, All Rise (2001), One Love (2002) and Guilty (2003) that all peaked at number one in the United Kingdom alongside releasing sixteen singles, over a four-year period. The group also worked alongside artists such as Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Lil Kim.

In late 2004, Blue announced that they would be going on a two-year hiatus. This coincided with the release of their first compilation album, Best of Blue, released on 15 November 2004. However in 2005, they confirmed that they would be splitting due to wanting to pursue solo careers.

On 28 April 2009, Blue announced that they had reformed. In May 2011, they represented the United Kingdom at Eurovision with the song "I Can", finishing 11th. They then released their fourth studio album, Roulette on 25 January 2013. "Hurt Lovers" was released as the album's second single on 22 April 2013.
