Cher has released eighty three official singles, twenty promotional singles and appeared in twenty six other songs. On the Billboard Hot 100, she has achieved: 4 number 1 singles, 12 Top 10 singles, 22 Top 40 singles and a total of 33 charted singles as a solo artist. Combined with the entries she had as part of the duo Sonny & Cher: 5 number 1 singles, 17 Top 10 singles, 32 Top 40 hits and a total of 51 singles which charted on the Billboard Hot 100.
Cher is the fifth-ranked female artist with the most Billboard US Hot 100 charted singles. She has reached the Top 10 on the Hot 100 at least once during each of four decades—the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s—placing her in a tie for second place in that category as of May 2014, alongside Aerosmith, Barbra Streisand, Madonna and Whitney Houston, only behind Michael Jackson. Cher’s span of top 10 records on the Hot 100 stretches for a total of 33 years, one month and three weeks (not counting the Sonny and Cher hits “I Got You Babe” and “Baby Don’t Go”), from “Bang Bang” in 1966 to “Believe” in 1999, placing her in third place in that category as of May 2014, behind only Jackson and Carlos Santana.
Cher’s career as a recording artist spans seven decades and she is the only artist to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in each of past six decades. This feat was accomplished when “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” reached number one on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart the week of January 19, 2011.
In the UK, she is the only female artist to have a top 40 hit in six consecutive decades. She has had a total of 34 top 40 hits, beginning with “All I Really Want to Do” in 1965 through “I Hope You Find It” in 2013.
Cher’s Spanish version of “Chiquitita” became her first song to chart on a US Latin chart, reaching number six on the US Billboard Latin Digital Songs chart. In October 2020, Cher released her version of “Happiness Is Just a Thing Called Joe” as a promotional single in her support of the US president candidate Joe Biden. In November 2020, Cher was one of the artists featured on a cover of Oasis’ “Stop Crying Your Heart Out”, recorded as a charity single for BBC’s Children in Need.
In May 2021, Cher released “Walls” as a single. She had previously recorded this song as a promotional single for the Free The Wild foundation in 2017.
