The discography of Jodeci, an American R&B group, consists of three studio albums, three compilation albums, eleven singles, and twelve music videos. The group was signed by Uptown Records after submitting a demo tape during a trip to New York.[1] In 1991, they released their debut album, Forever My Lady, which peaked at number eighteen on the Billboard 200,[2] and topped the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in the United States.[3] On April 28, 1995, the album was certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[4] The album produced five singles, three of which topped the US R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: "Forever My Lady", "Stay", and "Come and Talk to Me".[5] The last of these was certified gold by the RIAA.[6]

In 1993, the group released its second studio album, Diary of a Mad Band, which peaked at number six on the Billboard 200[2] and number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.[3] The album received a double-platinum certification by the RIAA,[7] and spawned three singles: "Cry for You", "Feenin'", and "What About Us". All peaked in the top 15 of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs;[5] the first two charted in the top 20 on the UK Singles Chart.[8]

The Show, the After Party, the Hotel (1995) was the group's third, as well as most successful, album. It peaked at number two on the Billboard 200,[2] and number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums,[3] and was certified platinum by the RIAA.[9] It was Jodeci's only album to chart outside of the United States, peaking at number four on the UK Albums Chart[10] and appearing on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart[11] and the Dutch Mega Album Top 100.[12] The Show, the After Party, the Hotel produced three singles, including "Freek'n You", which charted within the top 15 on both the Billboard Hot 100[13] and R&B/Hip-Hop Songs,[5] and was certified gold by the RIAA.[14] The single also charted on the Australian[11] and Dutch Singles Chart.[12]

Although Jodeci has been on indefinite hiatus since 1996, they released three compilation albums between 2005 and 2008. These were: Back to the Future: The Very Best of Jodeci, which peaked at number six on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums;[3] 20th Century Masters – Millennium Collection: The Best of Jodeci, which charted number eighty-six on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums;[3] and Playlist Your Way.
