haha well there's always this debate, technically speaking the year 2000 was still part of the 90's since current calendars counts decades starting with the first year 1 and not year Zero, but experts says both ways are acceptable since most people thinks it goes from zero to 9, so yeah, kinda confusing but technically not wrong lol

BLUE BIRD has been added to the official playlist of Japan's TOP streamed songs from the 00's

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37...1db515c54a4411

Also, BLUE BIRD just hit 9M streams! This is her second most streamed song and SEASONS is just 500K streams away to hit 10M, let's stream it as much as possible!

M is just 200K streams away from 9M as well!
It's so odd that Ayu only has one song in that 00's playlist... Sometimes I feel like Japan likes to pretend her career doesn't exist.

But if I understood it right, it's a list of most streamed songs that were released in 00s, it's not a selection made by a team of limited people.

EDIT: I was reading you again and I realized you are criticizing the audience in general hahaha I think it's also bizarre to see only 2 Utada songs in this list.

Haters are probably angry that she's still successful. Sold-out tie-in merchandise? A top-selling fictionalized autobiography-turned-drama? Concerts that sell well and an Instagram with more followers than many current stars?

How dare someone that clean people find embarrassing and that young people aren't into continue so shamelessly living her life as she wants and making money at it! She doesn't suit the current, more modest mores and people have passionate feelings about her, otherwise there wouldn't be hundreds of comments on every little article that comes out describing the newest thing she said on her Instagram. They might want to forget her, but they can't! And eventually, divas and bling will come back into fashion.

There's also the fact that many songs are worldwide famous for certain 90's anime, so they get more streams thanks to the anime fans around the world unlike Ayu, her biggest hits aren't anime/videogames ties-in (Dearest would be the only "big" in her ties-in, her Tales Of openings are great but the franchise is not as international and popular as idk final fantasy lol) so her biggest hits such a BLUE BIRD, SEASONS, M, Boys & Girls, Voyage, etc mostly receive streams only in Japan and her international fanbase of course, but still there's a big difference compared to hit anime songs.

It's always debatable, but technically the 90s is a decade that spans the time period between January 1, 1991, and December 31, 2000.

Let me quote this explanation, I know is confusing but considering SEASONS as part of the 90's is technically not wrong lol

I’m a little surprised, but also not really.

She rarely gets recognition for ~anything~ she does.
She’s always relegated to the “gyaru”—but in reality, in her peak, she appealed to everyone.

But the brand of jpop that she is known for is extremely indulgent, which is the complete opposite of what’s in now.

I still find that so weird. Thanks for the explanation btw @EvanOdinson, but it feels so... wrong?
IMO it makes sense for the 90s to start and end with the literal first and last day of the 90s... They leave out an entire year and add 2000, the 9 is right there in '90 (but I know that's due to the calendar apparently). Obviously this is not directed to any of the users here, I just think this system is kinda odd, haha. Still, I can see why they would include 2000 as part of the 90s, I guess :p

Forgot to inform that a new Inuyasha best album was uploaded to Spotify and of course Dearest is featured, great thing is that it's counting the song's total streams, this means that even if people listen to it directly from the Inuyasha album the streams will go to Ayu, and since Inuyasha has been getting more and more attention again thanks to Yashahime (and Kagome and Inuyasha's return in the series) maybe this will be a great boost to her streams

https://open.spotify.com/album/1jyLI...Qrq3ZLTonszQpA

SEASONS is getting close to 9.7M so let's try to reach 10M soon! M is just 35K streams away to hit 9M.

A song for XX is 100K streams away to hit 4M streams.

Fly High is 80K streams away to hit 2M streams.

I am... is 15K away from 1M streams.

Welcome! I'm glad people are interested in these stats as well

Weekly Update!

Number of Followes: 639,866K
Total Streams: 179,198,429M


Ok, making her hit 200M streams would be a nice 24th anniversary gift, just saying

M hit 9M streams! Her third song to reach this mark! SEASONS is about 260K streams to reach 10M streams!

I am... is 10K away to reach 1M streams!


EDIT: Her current TOP 50 song have changed a lot since the last update, I'll try to update it sometime during this week! Maybe create another playlist with these lol

EDIT 2: Maybe I should make a playlist with her TOP 100 songs, this way songs with less streams will have a chance to boos them and also I could include her latest releases, what do you guys think?

Sorry for the double post but I had some free time so decided to update these! Here's her current TOP 100 streamed songs on Spotify, some things that I noticed while making the playlist below:

Actually it's really well-balanced between classics and recent songs, Ohia no Ki, Haru Yo Koi and Dreamed a Dream are performing really well in streams terms and I'm actually surprised (in a good way!) how many Colours to TROUBLE tracks are in there, many always point how they only like (or even say she was relevant) until 2010 but this proves her "recent" work was still well-received!

Trust is featured 3 times because unlike others songs, the "A song for xx" version has a different count from the "A best" version, so they count as "different tracks", Trust - A Eurobeat Mix from SUPER EUROBEAT presents ayu-ro-mix is the only remix track that made it into the TOP 100 with over 280K streams!

A song is born is featured two times as well, one is the single version with Keiko and the other one would be her solo version from I am... album.

In the new playlist I made there're a few tracks from A BALLADS 2 versions bc only some of these count the song's total streams and since they have better quality I decided to include those (An example: songs like carols, momentum or aeternal share their total streams from their respective albums with their A BALLADS 2 versions but other tracks like You Were... don't, no idea why, probably just Spotify bein an *ss lol)

Sparkle has criminally low streams, barely made it into the TOP 100 at #99 with about 260K streams

So here goes the full list!

I have mentioned this before but I'm not sure if you guys are interested, if we made streaming parties we could really boost her stats a lot, I know some think "she probably doesn't care much about charts and rankings anymore" but at the end of the day she still needs to reflect good performance in both sales and streaming services so if you have the time try to stream her songs during the day, even if you're doing other things, as long as your mobile or PC is not muted the streams counts, you can just play her songs on repeat/shuffle lol

Last but not least, I made this new playlist with the TOP 100 songs mentioned above, feel free to share and listen if you're in the mood, it's a fun 8 hours playlist lol I had a great time trying to make a nice cover for it, hope you guys like it!
