The discography of Japanese recording artist Gackt consists of eight studio albums, eight compilation albums, one extended play, and forty-four singles. In 1999 Gackt signed a recording contract with Nippon Crown. His breakthrough success was the EP Mizérable, which peaked at number 2 on the Oricon albums chart. His single "Returner (Yami no Shūen)", released on June 20, 2007, was his first and only single to reach the number one spot on the Oricon charts to date.[1] In 2007, his entire back catalogue, with live song recordings from Drug Party tour, was released on the iTunes Store, video collection "The Greatest Filmography" was released in the United States and Canada, and his album Diabolos was released in 18 European countries.[2][3][4] From November 2008 until March 2010 his records were released under his own independent label Dears, but still supported by Nippon Crown. In April 2010, Gackt transferred to Avex Group. As a solo artist, Gackt has sold over 5 million certified records in Japan, and holds the male soloist record for most top ten consecutive chart singles as of July 18, 2011.[5][6]
