The discography of British pop and R&B singer Leona Lewis consists of three studio albums, twelve singles, one video album and sixteen music videos. Following winning the third series of British television talent show, The X Factor in 2006, Lewis released "A Moment Like This" in the United Kingdom and Ireland, which became the fastest selling single ever by a female artist in the UK.[1] Her follow-up single, "Bleeding Love" reached number one in 34 countries, and was the biggest-selling single of 2008 worldwide.[2][3] Lewis's first studio album, Spirit was released to follow the single; it became the fastest-selling debut album of all time in the UK and Ireland,[4][5] and the first debut album by a British solo artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200.[6] As of April 2012, Spirit is the 20th biggest-selling album of all time in the UK.[7] The next single, "Better in Time", was also successful worldwide, reaching the top ten in many countries. Subsequent singles "Forgive Me" and "Run" were released across Europe and Australia; "Forgive Me" went onto moderate success, while "Run" became Lewis's third number one in the UK, and also reached the top spot in Austria and Ireland. "I Will Be" released as the final single in North America.

Her second studio album, Echo was released in November 2009, spawning two singles. Lead single "Happy" reached the top five in various countries in Europe, and "I Got You" was a released as the second single. She recorded the theme song, "I See You", for the 2009 film Avatar, then in 2010 featured on the soundtracks of Sex and the City 2 and For Colored Girls. In November 2010 Lewis released a video album of her tour The Labyrinth, entitled The Labyrinth Tour Live from The O2. Lewis's third album, Glassheart, was released in October 2012 and is her least successful album to date. "Collide" was planned as the lead single for the album, but did not make the final track listing; "Trouble" was released as the lead single instead, and "Lovebird" was released subsequently.

On 4 July 2013 Leona confirmed her fourth album would be a Christmas one, citing Motown as the album's musical direction and confirmed there would be a bit of "original material".[8] Lewis announced that Christmas, with Love would be released on 2 December 2013 in the UK and the next day in the North America, preceded by the lead single, "One More Sleep".[9] The song reached number three on the UK Singles Chart, giving Lewis the most Top 5 hits of any British female solo artist.[10]
