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.

No word yet on whether that title is for the English and/or Japanese version or when we will hear this new song.

Somehow Skrillex in the same sentence with Utada makes me apprehensive.

Skrillex remixed Passion in one of his sets and it was boring as hell.

Also Poo Bear doesn't really produce good songs. At least, the ones I listened to were not great.

I'm no fan of Skrillex either. I'd actually say I'm an anti-fan of him. lol However, when he produces things for other artists, it tends to be a lot better than the stuff he makes for himself. He and Poo Bear did about half of Justin Beiber's "Purpose" album, which I thought was actually really good. So I guess we will see. I'm just happy we're getting another Hikki song! (As long as it doesn't have any of that horrible dubstep noise in it.)

Hikki must be facing lots of fears while writing this song, and we will be facing our fears the moment she releases the song lol.

Ultra Blue is that shit and I will forever stan

I do look forward to the new song. I trust her songs to turn out well so I'm not really nervous. I do hope it fits the vibe of KH though as well.

I wonder why it's "Utada Hikaru & Skrillex".... Is he important enough to be included? I mean, last time Ringo could only earn the title "Utada Hikaru feat. Shiina Ringo" for the vacation song...

I think Shiina only provided vocals to a song Hikki herself composed and arranged. Skrillex worked on both those aspects with Hikki this time around.

As a huge EDM fan and someone who has seen Skrillex live twice, I’m SO pumped for this collab. And I don’t think y’all need to worry about him doing ~Dubstep~ for the track. He’s produced plenty of amazing pop tracks. Regardless, can’t wait.

You mean, he will provide vocals to the new song as well??

Well I believe that there are no crappy songs from hikki. The worst scenario will be a mediocre song .

^zeke. did not say that. Creating a song together or just being asked to sing a part of it is a huge difference.

YAY, new single! Can't wait to hear Face Your Fears - looking forward to hear what sort of song they have created together.

I don't know much of Skrillex's music but I like HATE which he was involved with for 4Minute.

She used to do good imitation of hikki back in the old time. Now her voice is so squeaky and nothing like hikki.

Examples of her past decent imitations:







She had already lost hikki''s touch when she sang Hanataba wo Kimi ni recently:
