The discography of American singer and rapper Lauryn Hill consists of one album, and eighteen singles (including six singles as a featured artist).

Released on August 25, 1998, Hill's debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill sold over 423,000 copies in its first week (boosted by advance radio play of two non-label-sanctioned singles, "Lost Ones" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You")[1] and topped the US Billboard 200 for four weeks and the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums for six weeks. It went on to sell about 8 million copies in the US[2] and 12 million copies worldwide.[3][4][5] The first single released from the album was "Lost Ones" which reached number 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in the spring of 1998.[6] The second was "Doo Wop (That Thing)", which debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.[6] Other charted singles from the album were "Ex-Factor", "Everything Is Everything" and "To Zion".[6]

During 2000, Hill dropped out of the public eye. In July 2001, while pregnant with her third child, Hill unveiled her new material to a small crowd, for a taping of an MTV Unplugged special.[3][7] An album of the concert, titled MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, was released in May 2002 and featured only her singing and playing an acoustic guitar.[7] 2.0 debuted at number three on the Billboard 200,[8] but then quickly fell down the charts[9] and sold 470,000 copies in the US as of October 2003.[3] However, it was certified platinum in the US on June 11, 2002.
