ʕ•̫͡•ʔ About Hikki
Spoiler:
Utada Hikaru (宇多田ヒカル) is a Japanese pop singer-songwriter under the Emi Music Japan label. Utada is one of Japan's most successful artists of all time. Her debut album First Love is the #1 best selling album in Asian music history with over 7.65 million copies sold in Japan alone. In total she has sold over 38,000,000 million records in Japan, and 3 of her albums are in the Top 10 best-selling albums of all time in Japan (#1, #4, #8), making her one of the most successful and popular singers in J-pop history. Utada is bilingual as she was raised in both New York and Tokyo. She is also known in the west under her English language project name 'Utada', most famous for singing the Kingdom Hearts theme song, "Hikari / Simple And Clean" and the Kingdom Hearts II theme song, "Passion / Sanctuary". Initially, Utada's music had a heavy R&B style to it, but later her music progressed to a more pop / experimental tone. Her distinct R&B sound brought her much attention with her first release in Japan, "Automatic / time will tell". Utada was married to director Kiriya Kazuaki, who directed the movie CASSHERN, but in March 2007 the couple split.

On August 9, 2010, Utada announced plans to go on indefinite hiatus following the release of "Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL.2", her second compilation album. On November 24, 2010, "Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL.2" was released. It debuted atop the Oricon charts once again. It has also been anounced that Utada has severed ties with Island Def Jam, who releases her English language works. She has secured a global contract with EMI Music. Upon returning from her hiatus, all her future releases will be under the name Utada Hikaru regardless of the country of release.

Utada Hikaru has been deemed the Most Influential Japanese Artist of the past decade (2000-2010) by Japan Times.

Thank you for making the new thread!

Only a few more weeks until we get to hear "Anata ga Matteru" I'm curious to know how heavily her vocals will be featured.

Just watched 忘却 and cried. Lol

I'm in an emotional state, but that type of art is so rare now in jpop. Brought a lot of feelings out.

Has anyone posted the Michi instrumental? It's not from a karaoke place (at least it doesn't sound like it, it sounds like the same exact song, just with no vocals). I was so glad to find this!

^It doesn't really sound like the original one. The beginning is quite different, and there's a melody guide in the background if you notice. Probably it's from a karaoke or an instrumental shop.

Wow glad I saw this thread. So great that she sells like crazy!

That Boukyaku video is ...interesting. What are the things that we see pulsating at the beginning of the clip? Looks like bodily function but what do I know.

Utada is...changing labels.

Quote:
Hikaru Utada announces label transfer
http://aramajapan.com/news/hikaru-ut...ransfer/70840/

Through her official website, Hikaru Utada has announced that with her Universal Music Group contract expiring, she will be moving to Sony Music Japan. Utada was originally signed to Toshiba EMI that was renamed EMI Music Japan following the selling of their remaining stake to EMI in 2007. In 2013, the label was absorbed into Universal Music Japan. In her message, Utada emphasizes that it is her first label transfer as an artist.

She expresses her gratitude to the EMI and Universal staff who have been involved in her activities up until this moment and says that she wants to keep tryin’ new things which means that a new record by her might come out sooner than we expect.


Umm, yeah. Sony. In my opinion, that's something I'm NOT going to look forward to. My main issue is their restrictive YouTube policy...

Any thoughts? For me, not something to look forward to. I'm surprised at this news, but what's even shocking is that she's moving to Sony. I understand how Toshiba EMI got into Universal first from Toshiba selling its music label business, then Universal pretty much buys out EMI...but Utada moving to Sony? WHAAAT????? We got caught off-guard with this! :O

I'm also disappointed for that decision but I also think (or want to believe) that Utada knows what she's doing moving to Sony. I would have preferred her to end up in Warner, but well.

I don't really understand as well. Sony jp isn't a really good company IMO, as they don't seem to really care about their artists.
I hope she has total control of her music. I'm sure she will be, as her dad is her manager.
