The discography of Mel B, an English pop singer, consists of two studio albums, six singles, six music videos and one DVD.

On 9 October 2000 she released her first studio album, "Hot", which also included her number one duet with Missy Elliott for the song "I Want You Back". The second single release from the album was "Word Up", reaching #14 in UK. "Tell Me" was released in 2000, debuted at #4 in the UK charts. The song sold approximately 100,000 copies, making it the 158th "best seller" of 2000.[1] A fourth single was released in February 2001, "Feels So Good" which peaked at #5, followed by a final single, "Lullaby", a pop number dedicated to her daughter. The single entered and peaked at #13. The album wasn't a success and garnered mediocre reviews,[2] selling a disappointing 7,419 copies in its first week and charting at a weak #28, before quickly falling out of the charts,[3] leading to Virgin dumping Brown from their label.[4]

In 2005 Brown decided to release a new album by independent label Amber Café. L.A. State of Mind was released on 27 June 2005 in two formats: as a regular CD and as a limited edition with a DVD documentary. The only single from the album, "Today", peaked at number #41 in UK. The album failed in the charts, selling around 1,200 copies.

Currently, Brown is recording tracks for a new album and one of the producers behind the album was Darkchild.[5] In September 2013, Brown independently released her first single in eight years, "For Once in My Life".[6]
