Korean rapper G-Dragon began his career as the leader of the Korean hip hop group Big Bang. His discography, as a solo artist, began in 2009 and includes three studio albums/extended plays, one collaboration album, three live albums and several other singles/featured singles.

In 2009, during Big Bang's hiatus, G-Dragon released his debut solo album Heartbreaker. Propelled by its lead-single of the same name, an electronic pop song, the album sold over 275,000 copies[1] and went on to win Album of the Year from the 2009 Mnet Asian Music Awards.[2] The second single, "Breathe", manage to chart within the Top 20[3] while his other songs — "The Leaders", "A Boy", "Hello", and "She's Gone" — went on to top various charts upon their release.[4] In November 2010, YG Entertainment announced a collaboration album from G-Dragon and bandmate T.O.P.[5] To promote their album, the duo released three singles: "High High", "Oh Yeah", and "Knock Out" (Korean: 뻑이가요; Revised Romanization: Ppeogigayo).[6] The album was released on Christmas Eve, and debuted at number one on the Gaon Album Chart.[7]

Three years after his debut album, G-Dragon released his first EP One of a Kind in September 2012.[8] The album was received positively, placing first on the Billboard World Albums chart and entering the Billboard 200 chart at 161 for the week.[9] At of the end of 2012, the album netted in over 200,000 copies, making it the highest selling album by a Korean soloist since the release of his own Heartbreaker in 2009. For his effort, he won the "Record of the Year" award at the 22nd Seoul Music Awards. His second album, Coup D'état, was released one year later, in September 2013. Six tracks from Coup D'etat placed within the top 10 of the Gaon Digital Chart with "Who You?" (Korean: 니가 뭔데; Revised Romanization: Niga Mwonde) being number one.[10] The album entered the Billboard 200, making G-Dragon the first Korean act to have multiples entries in the chart.[11] The success of Coup D'état led to G-Dragon winning the World's Best Album award at the World Music Awards.[12]
