  1. Also if you want a rundown on all her music videos and singles, this videography clip made by a fan is absolutely beautiful and so well done:

    It's definitely worth a view. It's uploaded in shortened & muted parts on YouTube, so I'd recommend watching it on bilibili.

    also if you want her videography in full I might be able to hook you up...

  2. Hopefully this means you liked underrated bop Still in Love + certified jam Leavin' for Las Vegas, yes?

    Past<Future and Play are probably her best albums, so definitely check them out next! Though, assuming you went through the whole 3 discs of Finally, it's easier to listen to the albums of which's singles you gravitate most towards
    Butterfly and RUNAWAY like this.

    GIRL TALK is my favorite song of hers EVER, so hopefully you'll give that song and the Queen of Hip-Pop album some love!
  4. I've just heard the new songs from Best Fiction and 'What a Feeling' might be my new fave.
    Yes I liked both! Leavin' for Las Vegas really reminds me of Gwen Stefani.

    I just listened to the new songs on Finally since I saw some disagreements about how the re-recordings stack up to the originals. Think I am going to use singles to decide which to go to next.

  5. Listening to Sweet 19 Blues today and... I'm glad she didn't continue with replacing all the singles with these weird remixes after this album. They're good, but it's so jarring and a little inconvenient to seek out the single releases to actually listen to the originals.

  7. To avex or whoever has the rights to her music videos:

    If you got vids then you better put ‘em up!

  8. Put 'em up, one of her best songs and videos! A classic.

    I'm still curious about the version feat. Chilli.

    I really hope she makes a surprise appearance at either the Opening or Closing Ceremony at the Olympics.

  12. With the controversy surrounding the Olympics in Japan, I'm not sure she would or should participate... But if she does, her divine appearance might cleanse the world from all diseases.

  13. Queen shit.

    2003 was such a moment. She was going all in on her new sound and was experimenting left and right, bringing sass and attitude. That time was such a dramatic shift in sound and image and I feel really built the foundations for her later success during the decade.

    Imagine, first releasing Uh Uh with AI under SUITE CHIC:

    Then going into shine more:

    Then Put ‘Em Up

    THEN SO CRAZY and Come:

    And then cap it off at the end of the year with Style, containing the above and going even harder on the urban sound with tracks like Indy Lady:

  14. Style is so underrated!
  15. Was listening to her earlier and.. J-Pop just ain’t the same without her. It felt like she was the last holdout from that era of RnB Japanese queens. It’d be less painful if there were other J-diva’s active but Japan is def not here for them anymore.
  16. I often daydream about Japanese culture somehow shifting in a way that we get a new batch of solo girls that they care about and slay the charts again. Some of the queens are still kicking and releasing here and there but it’s definitely not the same anymore.
  17. Same here! I read a theory somewhere that the fall of the J-Diva actually might have something to do with a cultural change after 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in the sense that the population moved to wanting something brighter and carefree which actually coincides with the complete saturation of idol music from around that time onwards dd

  18. I read about that too! Wouldn’t it be cool if the Japanese 80’s had a revival in the sense of idols breaking through with solo careers? Maybe the AKB etc. groups producing a couple of successful solo girls not unlike Akina and Shizuka who would open the door for new hitomi’s and Ayumi’s. It’s embarrassing how much I think about this dd.

  19. Happy 29th anniversary to my queen. Hope you're enjoying your retirement <3

    Here is a cute megamix of 115 songs to celebrate this iconic day:

  20. This megamix is making me emotional...
