American singer Kesha has released three studio albums, one compilation album, two extended plays, 15 singles (including four as featured artist), six promotional singles, and has made six other guest appearances. As of April 2016, the singer has sold over 59 million records worldwide,[1] including 2.47 million albums and 36.3 million songs in the United States as of March 2016.[2]

Kesha made her international debut in early 2009, serving as a featured artist on Flo Rida's "Right Round", which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and topped the charts in five other countries.[3] The singer's debut studio album, Animal, followed in January 2010 and topped the Canadian and American charts. The record's lead single and Kesha's solo debut single, "Tik Tok" (2009), reached number one in eleven countries and spent nine consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. The song has brought total sales of 15 million copies worldwide, therefore making it one of the best-selling digital singles of all time.[4] Other singles from Animal, "Blah Blah Blah" (2010), "Your Love Is My Drug" (2010) and "Take It Off" (2010), experienced similar success. Kesha topped eight charts on Billboard's 2010 Year-End Chart, including Top New Artists, Hot 100 Songs and Hot 100 Artists, and was named their artist of the year.[5] The commercial and critical success of the singer's first album led to the release of the extended play Cannibal in November 2010. Its lead single, "We R Who We R" (2010), reached the top ten in ten countries, while peaking at number one in the United States, Australia, and United Kingdom. "Blow" (2011) also managed to peak within the top ten of multiple countries.

Kesha's second studio album, Warrior, was made available for purchase in December 2012. "Die Young" was selected as the record's lead single and peaked at number two in the United States, while charting in the top ten of eleven other territories. Fellow singles "C'Mon" and "Crazy Kids" were released to minor success. In October 2013, the singer was featured on Pitbull's single "Timber", which reached the top five of multiple countries and topped the British, Canadian and American charts. After a controversial legal battle with longtime producer Dr. Luke, Kesha's comeback single, "Praying" (2017), was released as the lead single for her third studio album Rainbow.
