The discography of German singer Sandra consists of ten studio albums, eight compilation albums and forty-six singles. Her videography comprises three long-form video releases and twenty-five music videos.

After enjoying a considerable success as the lead singer of the disco trio Arabesque, particularly in Japan, Sandra began performing solo in 1984, launching her career with a German-language cover of Alphaville's "Big in Japan". Her breakthrough single was "(I'll Never Be) Maria Magdalena", released in 1985, which topped charts in many countries and secured her international fame. With Michael Cretu as her manager, producer and composer, and personally a life partner, Sandra went on to score even more European top 10 hit singles, most famously "In the Heat of the Night" (1985), "Everlasting Love" (1987), "Secret Land" (1988), "Hiroshima" (1990) and "Don't Be Aggressive" (1992). Sandra found biggest popularity in continental Europe, Israel, Japan and Brazil. She has reportedly sold over 30 million records worldwide, which makes her one of the most successful female German vocalists ever.[1]
