About Hikki
Quote:
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.

I just needed a place to say that BAD Mode may be her best album yet and that after revisiting Exodus and TITO I still love her English work and miss her horny tracks.

Been obsessing over the new album so much. I wasn't expecting to get so emotional during 'Kibun Ja Nai no (Not In The Mood)' every time I listen to it, especially at the end when Hikki sings the end section "Hey how are you"... followed by her son. What an unexpected touch to that song.

Definitely a favorite on the album, but I utterly love "Find Love" and it's probably my #1 off the album right now.

Honestly it was a pleasant surprise to see this album selling over 90K. I was expecting around 60K since it was released digitally a month ahead.

I don't think I'm really in love with the album... Bad Mode is still the only album song I really like (I just can't get into the other three). However, I have been hooking onto PINK BLOOD and Face My Fear for the past month, though I prefer the single version of FMF. I just don't like how hikki took on softer approach in the album version. As a whole I think this album is better than Hatsukoi, but I prefer the concept of Hatsukoi more.

^I had hoped she'd get 100k first week but it's a very solid number!

In other news Hikki is going to perform at Coachella this Saturday!

https://twitter.com/88rising/status/...--HI4Krow&s=19

https://twitter.com/88rising/status/...PCm5jIQWQ&s=19


Apparently there's gonna be 8 artists in 80 minutes, so Hikki will probably do two songs. I'd love for them to perform Find Love.
Also, some fans have speculated that Hikki might perform sth with Jackson Wang, since she started following him recently. Could simply be due to appearing at the same event and nothing more, who knows.

I'm shocked but also super happy!

Hikki's setlist (it was basically a ten-minute medley):

1. Simple And Clean
2. First Love
3. Face My Fears
4. Automatic

It was very nice! Hikki was clearly nervous & the stream had some sound issues but it got better as the performance progressed. Hikki also seemed a lot more relaxed during Automatic (my personal favourite of the night). Still can't believe this actually happened.

I wish they had sung Find Love but god, seeing her on that stage felt wonderful. She really deserves it!
Apparently, they will perform next week, too, so I'm really looking forward to that.

Lastly, this is completely off-topic BUT
Spoiler:
THERE WAS A 2NE1 REUNION AT COACHELLA!


UPDATE: HIKKI JUST PREMIERED A NEW SONG!!!

^Agreed! She was a lot better by the time she started singing Automatic, tho! Some non-fans made some harsh comments about the vocal but most seem to realize it was the nerves and that it got better (+ Hikki just struggles more with these really high notes). Hikki isn't the best live performer by any means but Automatic showed she's a lot better than what the S&C performance would lead one to believe.

I'm really liking the new song!
I'm also glad that Hikki has been getting quite a lot of attention (they even trended in the US), as I kind of expected them to go a bit 'unnoticed', but thankfully that's not the case! There are tons of tweets about them that have thousands of likes.
Get that promo, Godtada!
