The discography of English recording artist Cheryl consists of four studio albums, one extended play, nine singles (not including three as a featured artist) and fourteen music videos. Cheryl's first foray into a solo music career occurred when she featured on will.i.am's "Heartbreaker". After having streetdancing lessons during the filming of Passions of Girls Aloud series, Cheryl was picked to appear in the song's video. She was later asked to sing the female vocals on the UK release of the track,[1] which reached number four in the United Kingdom and sold over 250,000 copies, giving the single a silver certificate by the BPI. It was the 31st best selling single of 2008.[2] Cheryl's solo career began in October 2009 with the release of "Fight for This Love", the lead single from her debut studio album, 3 Words. The track saw Cheryl achieve her first solo number-one single when it topped the UK chart, while also attaining international chart success; peaking within the top 10 in the likes of France, Germany and the Netherlands. The parent album debuted at number one in the UK with sales of 125,271.[3] On 6 November 2009 the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) certified the album platinum.[4] It has since gone 3× Platinum,[4] with sales of over 1,000,000 copies.[5] "3 Words" is both the opening and title song from her debut studio album. It was released in the UK and Ireland on 20 December 2009 went on to become Fernandez-Versini's second consecutive UK top-five and Irish-top ten hit. It was also a top five hit in Australia and has since been certified platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association and gold by the British Phonographic Industry. "Parachute" was released on 11 March 2010 as the album's third and final single. "Parachute" became Cheryl's third consecutive solo UK top five hit, and her third Irish top 10 hit. It was nominated for a Brit Award in 2011.

October 2010 saw the release of Cheryl's second studio album, Messy Little Raindrops, which became her second consecutive number-one album in the UK; the album was certified Platinum by BPI, with shipments in the UK in the excess of 300,000.[6] The album was preceded by the release of its lead single, "Promise This". "Promise This" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming her second solo UK number one behind "Fight for This Love" (October 2009).[7] It sold 157,210 copies in its debut week,[8] which earned it the highest first-week sales of the year, for a non-charity single at that time.[9][10] "The Flood" was serviced as the second single from the album.

Cheryl released her third studio album, A Million Lights, in June 2012, where it debuted at number two in the United Kingdom selling 34,934 copies in its first week on sale.[11] "A Million Lights" was certified Gold in the United Kingdom for shipments of 100,000 copies.[12] The lead single, "Call My Name", produced by Calvin Harris, became Cheryl's third number-one single with first week sales of 152,001 copies in the United Kingdom, becoming 2012's fastest selling number one single on the UK Singles Chart until December of the same year,[13] "Under the Sun" was serviced as the second single from A Million Lights.

The lead single from her fourth solo studio album Only Human, titled "Crazy Stupid Love" featuring Tinie Tempah was released on 20 July 2014.[14] The single became her fourth solo UK number one after it entered at the top of the UK Singles Chart, and also topped the charts in the Republic of Ireland and Scotland. The single notched up a combined chart sales figure of 118,000 in its first week in the UK, with audio streams contributing just over 3%. The album's second single, "I Don't Care", had sold over 82,000 copies in the United Kingdom during the week of its release, and debut at the top of the UK Singles Chart. It gave the singer her tenth number-one single, and fifth as a solo artist, overtaking current record sharers Geri Halliwell and Rita Ora[15] setting a new record for most number one singles by a female artist for Fernandez-Versini, with five.[16] Only Human was released on 10 November 2014. It became her fourth solo album to debut within the top 10 in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
