That's not really true. Her sales haven't really been increasing like mad and she hasn't had an actual hit song since NEW LOOK. So I wouldn't say she's getting bigger, just currently not getting any less popular. Currently the female solo artists aren't in in Asia.

I was reading a magazine with Ayu on the cover and a student next to me asked me who it was. When I said it was Ayu, he said he hadn't heard anything about her since 10 years ago LOL.

Hits are songs like Baby don't cry that sell really well digitally like double platinum+ for a ringtone or full song (or physically selling well). WILD (and for the moment Fight Together) are not on the hit status.
Both WILD (and for now Figher Together) did digitally just like ayu's Love song, MOON, Virgin Road etc. Just that ayu sell slightly better for singles physically.

Not really. WILD has done worse than Sunrise digitally. Not sure how Fight Together did, but it sure didn't stay in top 5 for too long (on Recochoku). So I disagree, the last huge hit Namie Amuro has had was NEW LOOK. And talking about hits, the only female singers who recently had huge digital hits were Nishino Kana and JUJU.

This might seem rude, but do you give even a little thought to the things you post? Let's see there were many new releases this week which pushed Ayu out of top 15, it's not that her sales suddenly dropped to 500 copies, but there were so many new release which obviously sold more than 1.5-2.5k. Chill, FIVE will reach 200k in 3-4 weeks tops

I think she's more similar with Madonna.
I talked about Madonna in our class once [saying "Yeah, but Madonna is the pop queen/legend of the whole World"] and then I got answers like "Oh, no way, she's so old and all, Gaga is the queen/legend, not her!"
I think, to be a legend you must have a long career [Which Gaga hasn't] and use different kind of styles [which Gaga doesn't do] Gaga is popular yes, and hyped right now [and btw, I like her too] but calling her a legend in her situation and with so short career, I think it's just absurd and not a fact.

And she hasn't outsold Madonna, has she?

^Madonna's overall sales are somewhere between 250 million and 350 million right now... She is the best selling female singer in the world...

Lady Gaga's sales are at 64 million... But this counting digital sales, what I do find strange... Still, Madonna's digital sales are pretty strong too and weren't counted on the source I have...

If Gaga wishes to break all of Madonna records, she needs a lot of luck and stay strong for the years to come x,x

I don't want to sound like a hater, but I don't know if Gaga has what it takes. But only time will tell. I hope she doesn't run out of creativity by then because it seems like she's losing a bit of steam sometimes.

Wow, I think that just means they're more out of the loop than anything, lol.

I doubt it's because she's hated... but moreso because she's seen as 'not fresh' in this day and age. What I've seen is that people are okay with Ayu, it's just that they have other artists they really like nowadays. The Kana Nishinos, Ikimonogakaris, AKBs... they're all in atm. Though how long they'll be in the spotlight really depends. Most people who have even stood a match against Ayu's popularity among those who DO still listen to her have fallen off the face of relevance. (Ai Otsuka, ORANGE RANGE, etc.)

^ I actually think Kana has a good chance of being really huge. But that's way off-topic.

For me...I think Ayu needs a break..a break for her would be six months to a year, if that. But she reallly needs to reconnect with her audience - and I'm not meaning her fans.

I feel the same way; she doesn't have enough variety to keep people interested for too many years to come.

I think if Kana's next few singles don't make it big time in 2-3 years she'll be forgotten which is sad as the girl really has the potential ^^ In other words she'll end up being the new Otsuka Ai.

she needs better tie-ins, seriously ?? XD
Tales of Xillia is an amazing and huge tie-in, i think without the tie-in, this mini-album would sell like 120k-140k.
And to be honest, the people is losing interest on female singers, now they love girl groups (48 groups, korean groups, blah blah blah).
We can see a huge droop for female singers, just look kana's last album

^ I agree

As for the other stuff (namely the Kana comments and singles)
I don't think you can just look at single sales...
Some people have rather poor (Oricon) sales but the albums do rather well... frankly I think Kana as some staying power... her last album changes my opinion a bit... To love was so much better then Thank you...

I think people are underestimating a lot to ayu
that's what I think, but ....
even if her popularity is not like before I keep track of what it produces
I think that it will be difficult to stop and back later.
you think she has not thought about it?

Yeah you're right about the singles, but her album sales also halved with Sankyu love...

^ yeah, I noticed that. I wasn't too impressed with the album and I think a lot of people weren't impressed, it seemed like she took a step backwards...

And looking at sales this week for the top 3... man, its been a rather slow couple of weeks for Japanese music industry... I think the biggest sales were FIVE and AAA best album.

^ yeah so was I, especially when if, Distance and Esperanza were so amazing <3

Kalafina should manage to sell over 20k this week, though this is by far their worst album.
