The discography of Canadian pop singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado, consists of five studio albums, twenty singles and a number of other appearances. Furtado first gained fame with her debut album, Whoa, Nelly!, and its single "I'm Like a Bird", which won a 2001 Juno Award for Single of the Year and a 2002 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. It produced two more international singles: the more successful "Turn Off the Light", and "... On the Radio (Remember the Days)". After giving birth to her daughter Nevis, her second studio album, Folklore was released. It was less commercially successful in the U.S.. It produced three international singles: "Powerless (Say What You Want)", "Try", and "Força" (the theme of the 2004 European Football Championship).

In summer 2006 she released her third studio album, Loose. It is her biggest success to date worldwide. It produced the number-one hits "Promiscuous", "Maneater", "Say It Right" and "All Good Things (Come to an End)". After a 3 year break, in September 2009 she released her first full-length Spanish album Mi Plan along with her first single "Manos al Aire" which topped the Billboard Hot Latin Songs. This made Nelly the first North American singer to top the Billboard Hot Latin Chart with an original Spanish song. Further singles released were "Más" and "Bajo Otra Luz".

On 26 October, she released a remix album Mi Plan Remixes, following Furtado released her first greatest hits The Best of Nelly Furtado a month later on 12 November 2010.

On 14 September 2012, she released her fifth studio album The Spirit Indestructible. It failed to match the previous success of her last studio album Loose. It debuted at #79 and sold only 6,000 copies its first week of release in the U.S.
