Utada Hikaru was born in New York to Japanese parents with roots in the Japanese music industry. Her father, Teruzane Utada, was a record producer. Her mother, Junko Utada, was an enka singer, performing under the stage name "Keiko Fuji." Junko Utada’s mother, and Hikaru’s grandmother, was a blind shamisen player (ごぜ, or goze). Utada Hikaru made her first professional recording at the age of twelve. She did her recordings with her mother, releasing songs under a band named “U3” (also known as Utada 3) until 1996 when she started her first solo project, "I’ll be Stronger." The "Cookin’ With Moses Vocal" from this project was called the "Cookin’ With Gas Vocal" on the promotional release. "I’ll Be Stronger" was the first song Utada Hikaru wrote. It was released under the artist name "Cubic U," a mathematical reference to her being the third Utada 'power,' which was Hikaru’s pseudonym before becoming a superstar in Japan. The song failed to release in the United States, and in 1997, she started her next project. Her goddaughter, Ayani Saiyuki helps her with some of her music. She is currently attending Polytechnic High.


1998: Precious
Cubic U released her debut single "Close to You," which was a cover of The Carpenters' song. She then released her debut album Precious, but it failed to be released in the United States due to restructuring issues at her then record label Capitol Records. In an MTV interview (on MTV’s You Hear It First, October 2004), Utada explained: "Someone in Japan heard it—at a Japanese record company—and he said, 'Oh, can't you write in Japanese? You speak Japanese… And I didn’t want to say 'no,' so I had to try it!" She released Precious in Japan on January 28, 1998, and then later re-released it on March 31, 1999 to much better success. It has sold 702,060 copies to date in Japan, making it a significant hit for an all-English album in that market.

Utada moved to Tokyo in late 1998 and attended Seisen International School, and later the American School in Japan, while continuing to record on a new contract with Toshiba-EMI. She soon made her mark on Japanese music with her phenomenally successful single, "Automatic / Time Will Tell." Over 2,063,000 units have sold cumulatively of its two versions, making it the 2nd most successful single by a solo female artist in Japanese music history, behind Namie Amuro’s "Can You Celebrate?", and also stands as the most successful debut single ever released in the country.


1999-2000: First Love
Two months later, "Movin' on without you," which was a tie-in with a popular Nissan Car television commercial, was released on February 17, 1999 and would clear 1-million confirmed units with its two cumulative versions: another 8cm and 12cm dual release, and became her second platinum single and first #1 single. This was soon followed by her much-anticipated official studio debut album which came out the following month, March 1999, titled First Love, which sold over five million copies from March to April 1999, placing Utada among the 100 wealthiest people in Japan. First Love was not only the fastest selling debut album in Japanese history,[citation needed] but also had the highest initial first-week and overall sales for a debut album, achieving multi-platinum status in its first week of release. Utada would be noted in the Guinness Book of World Records 2000 for being the "Most Popular Singer in Asia."

A month after the album First Love was released, the song "First Love" was released as a single, mostly because of popular demand, and sold 804,000 units cumulatively of its 8cm and 12cm version. First Love was Utada’s only album to have merely three single releases, all her subsequent work would contain at least four singles. In addition to the album reaching #1 status on the daily, weekly and monthly charts of the Oricon Top 200, Utada also broke the record for units sold of a single album in Japan by the year’s end (over 7.650 million units), all by age 16, which record she still holds to this day. First Love is the most commercially successful debut CD album, and most commercially successful album overall by a Japanese artist, in Japanese music history, having sold over 10 million copies throughout Asia, with nearly 8 million copies sold in Japan alone. The year ended for Utada on a high note, being ranked #5 on Japanese radio station "Tokio Hot 100 Airplay's" Top 100 Artists of the 20th Century by the station and its listeners[9]

Eight months after "First Love" was released, Utada then released her fourth Japanese-language single, "Addicted To You." It broke the million mark in its first week, making it the fastest selling single of all time by a solo or female artist in Japan.[citation needed] It also hit #1 on the Oricon Singles Chart for two consecutive weeks (a personal first) and eventually sold 1,784,000 copies. It remains her most successful single of all time. On April 19, 2000, Utada released her first of only two singles for that year, "Wait & See ~Risk~." It also reached #1 on the Oricon Sinlges with her second highest debut on that particular chart, and would go on to sell 1,662,000 copies, her largest-selling single that year. This single would later be ranked #6 on Oricon's list of 10 Best-Selling Singles from January 1, 1999 to April 24, 2006. A month later, she released a half single "Remix: Fly Me to the Moon" in English and Toshiba-EMI released an animated music video for the single version of Fly Me to the Moon. The single was a limited edition release of 20,000 units, but sold out rapidly while hitting a chart peak of #16 on the Oricon. The follow-up "For You / Time Limit," her second double A-sided single, was released in late June and proved much more successful by becoming her fourth #1 hit (her second single to reach #1 two consecutive weeks). It was her last single in 2000 and it eventually sold 888,650 units. In July-August 2000, Utada decided to go on her first major headlining tour entitled "Bohemian Summer Circuit Live 2000". The tickets for all the July concert showings sold out within ninety minutes on April 22, 2000 with the following day resulting in all the August tickets selling out in under seventy-five minutes[12]. Utada would temporarily return to New York City just after "For You/Time Limit"'s release to attend Columbia University as a freshman, but finding her break into Japanese music scene "easier than expected," she left after a year to pursue her music career.


2001: Distance
In early 2001, Utada released what would be the final Distance era single, "Can You Keep a Secret?" on February 16, 2001. It brought her #1 hit count up to five (her third single to stay #1 two weeks), and became her fifth single to exceed a million units in sales, raking in an eventual 1.484 million units, and was #10 on Oricon's Top Ten List of Best-Selling Singles from January 1, 1999 to April 24, 2006[14][15]. A month later, she released her second album, "Distance," on March 28, 2001, after nearly a two year hiatus. It was awarded with the largest first-week sales for any album in Japanese music history, with over 3.02 million units sold. At the end of 2001, it became the most sold album for any J-music artist worldwide or in the residential industry, with 4.469 million copies sold in Japan alone. She had the #1 single and album of the year as well in Japan, for Distance and its last released single, "Can You Keep A Secret?" Distance is also the fourth best-selling album of all time in Japan.[17] The video for Utada's 2001 song "Can You Keep a Secret?" received some attention as part of "International Week," which coincided with the 2001 EMAs on the American channel MTV2. The video's airplay was likely Utada's first chance of exposure in the United States. In 2001, Utada also did a duet with Foxy Brown tited "Blow My Whistle" and featured on the Rush Hour 2 soundtrack.


2002-2003: Deep River
After Distance, Utada quickly released the single which was dedicated to the female victim, Utada's fan, of a murder case in Ikeda, Osaka "Final Distance."[citation needed] After that, she released "Traveling," "Hikari," and "Sakura Drops/Letters" for her 2002 follow-up album, Deep River. With the exception of "Final Distance" (#2 peak), they all became instant #1 smashes on the Oricon singles chart, selling a combined total of about 2.8 million physical units by the end of 2002.[citation needed] In May 2002, she became sick right before the release of Deep River and underwent surgery after being diagnosed with an ovarian tumor. During this period, she had to put on hold her TV appearances and other promotional activities. In June 2002, just over a year and a month after "Distance," the album was released. While there were no TV appearances, she promoted her album in magazine and radio interviews. The Oricon count of the album was another amazing first-week sales debut for Utada, with 2.35 million sold for the week post its release day. Oricon reports that sales eventually surpassed 3.60 million, making her the only singer or group in Japanese music history to have three consecutive albums surpass the triple-platinum (3 million) sold mark, by RIAJ standards. It was also her third consecutive time to hold the #1 position on Oricon's Yearly Albums chart and became the eighth best selling album of all time in Japan.


In 2003, Utada's promotional and personal life schedules got more active due to her marriage and an imposing agreement with Island Records in America to release a proper full-English debut album. New Japanese-language singles would therefore come few and far between, but Utada did release "Colors" on January 29, 2003, which was her only single release for 2003. This song was distinctive because it featured heavy ethereal and experimental tones for the first time in Utada's discography, something that would display itself fruitfully in all the ULTRA BLUE era singles. It became her longest charting single ever with a 45 week trajectory on the Oricon Singles chart, selling 881,000 copies, and was #3 on the Yearly Singles chart.

2004-2005: Exodus
Her first singles compilation album Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol.1 was released on March 31, 2004. It became the best-selling album of 2004 in Japan, making her the only solo or group artist to reach #1 four times on the yearly charts. It was also the first compilation album to reach #1 in six years on the yearly charts, and the first compilation album to reach #1 in twenty six years by a female artist. Its success was a particularly amazing achievement, since it received very little promotion and contained no new material or photos. Moreover, it charted longer on the Oricon Albums chart longer than any other Utada release to date, over 2 years. It was also her first to debut at #1 on the United World Charts, the first time in music history for any Asian artist.The album would go on to sell over 2.575 million units in Japan, making it the 34th best-selling album ever in the country. A month later, on April 21, she released her only Japanese single in 2004, "Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro," which topped the singles chart for two consecutive weeks and sold 365,000 units by the year's end and was also the main theme song for Casshern, her now ex-husband's directorial debut.

In mid-2004, Utada moved back to New York, and began work on a new recording contract with Island Def Jam Music Group. On October 5, 2004, she released her North American English-language debut album, Exodus, under the name "Utada," which was her new American-given artist title at the Universal Convention[22]. It was released nearly a month earlier, on September 9 in Japan, with a special booklet and housed in a cardboard slipcase. In an MTV interview, Utada said: "I don't think it's the music that I'm concerned about. It's obviously that I look really different and there really aren't any completely Asian people [who are popular singers in the U.S.] right now." Exodus became Utada's fourth consecutive release to debut at #1 and boast 500,000+ first-week sales. It had a chart run of twenty weeks on the Oricon and saw her reach #1 on the World United Charts a second time, eventually selling 1.35 million copies. In spite of enlisting the help of Timbaland to produce and co-write some songs, her American debut as an Island Records artist was met with indifference by the American market, almost due to the fact that there was virtually no promotion on her record label's part, selling a minimal 30,000 units. "Easy Breezy" was released as the lead single in early August 2004, peaking at #9 Billboard Hot Dance/Club Airplay chart[citation needed], followed up by "Devil Inside" a month and two weeks later. "Exodus '04" was released at the end of June 2005 and featured remixes from The Scumfrog, Richard Vission, JJ Flores and Peter Bailey. In the UK, Mercury added another 2 remixes for "You make me want to be a man" in the original album Exodus 04, titled "You Make Me Want To Be A Man [Bloodshy & Avant Mix]" and "You Make Me Want To Be A Man [Junior Jack Mix]." By the end of the year Utada was voted "#1 Favorite Artist of 2004" by Oricon's annual readers poll

A year after the international releases and promotion of Exodus, Utada moved back to Tokyo and returned to the Japanese music scene with the release of her 14th Japanese single, "Be My Last," originally rumored to be a double A-side. The title track was used as the main theme for the movie Spring Snow (春の雪 Haru no Yuki). Despite topping the Oricon charts, "Be My Last" did not meet commercial expectations, failing to sell over 30% of pre-ordered shipments. However, "Be My Last" became the second most downloaded song via PC of 2005 in Japan. In mid-December, she released her second Japanese single for 2005 single "Passion," which was used as the theme song for the Japanese version of video game Kingdom Hearts II. Depite the large tie-in that was akin to Hikari, the single only reached #4 on the Oricon Top 200 singles charts, selling just over 112,000 copies total, her lowest-selling Japanese single to date. In addition to "Passion," Utada composed an English version, "Sanctuary," that was used for overseas advertisement for Kingdom Hearts II, which used different lyrics and style of background vocals.

The fourth single from her English Exodus album, "You Make Me Want to Be a Man," was released in October 2005. "Devil Inside" became a club smash in the U.S. and topped the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Airplay charts, and remains her most successful single release in the U.S.. Both the Exodus album and "You Make Me Want to Be a Man" single were released in the U.K., with different artwork from the USA and Japanese versions. In October 2005, "You Make Me Want to Be a Man" became another #1 on the Billboard Dance chart and was featured on the Japanese Nintendo DS Launch Campaign.


2006: Ultra Blue
On February 22, 2006 Utada released her 16th Japanese single, "Keep Tryin'." The single was used to promote Lismo! au Listen Mobile Service. "Keep Tryin'" peaked at #2 on the Oricon charts, selling a sizeable 125,000 copies total over Passion, still somewhat short in contrast to most all her earlier works. However, the digital sales were Utada's highest up to this point, clearing two-and-a-half million downloads, and spending the most weeks atop OnGen's digital charts at two and half months. "Keep Tryin'" also reached number one on iTunes Japan's year-end chart. "This Is Love", the opening track from Utada's then-upcoming Japanese studio album Ultra Blue became available for download on May 31, making it Utada's first digital sales-exclusive single (eventually becoming the ninth most downloaded song of 2006 at iTunes Japan) and was used to promote Ultra Blue, which was released on June 14, 2006 physically and June 28 digitally. The album contained "Colors" her lone 2003 single and "Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro" her lone 2004 single. Unlike her previous Japanese-language albums, Ultra Blue did not have an eponymous track to the album title. Instead, the ballad "Blue" was recorded. The song and album featured Utada's new experimental pop and dance tone, becoming its central theme. Ultra Blue sold 500,317 copies in the first week, easily topping the Oricon Daily, Weekly and Monthly charts, and becoming Utada's third #1 album debut on the United World Charts.[24] in addition to giving Utada her sixth consecutive chart-topping album to sell in excess of 500,000 units for first-week sales, setting a new record. It also charted a second week at #1 on the Oricon Daily and Weekly charts, selling a further 157,000 units. By July 13, barely a month post its release, her record label Toshiba EMI published a report confirming Ultra Blue had sold over one million copies worldwide and four million digital ringtones already[28]. After fifty-three weeks on the Oricon chart, Ultra Blue sold 910,998 units in Japan and was certified triple-platinum by the RIAJ, making it the highest-selling original studio album by a Japanese female artist in 2006.

Ultra Blue was also Utada's first album to be available on the iTunes Japan online music store, where it was immensely successful, charting at #4 on the 2006 yearly download rankings[30]. It was the best selling original studio album by a female artist in 2006, and the seventh best selling album of the year according to 'Oricon Style' magazine rankings. The EMI Group released their Annual Report for 2007 on July 29, and with it came news that Utada’s album Ultra Blue had sold 1.3 million units worldwide, making it one of EMI’s 10th best-selling album of the past year.

The "Utada United 2006" nationwide tour commenced June 30, 2006 and ended on September 12, 2006 after Utada's performances at Yoyogi. Surprisingly, this was Utada's only other concert tour besides her debut tour with the "Bohemian Summer 2000" concert series, although she did perform one concert at the Budokan Dome in 2004. Aside from her Japanese work, the tour's set list featured three tracks from her 2004 English-language album, Exodus. The dates were all cumulatively announced, and ticket sales started on May 28, 2006 with the majority of venues selling out in less than two hours.[citation needed] On September 20, 2006, Exodus was re-released in Japan in addition to releasing "Utada Hikaru Single Collection" Volume 4 in September 2006, which entered the Oricon Music DVD charts at #1, selling an approximate first-week estimate of 22,000 units.[citation needed]On November 22, 2006, Utada released her 17th Japanese single, "ぼくはくま (, Boku wa Kuma?, lit. I'm a Bear)." The song tied with "Passion" as her lowest charting single, placing #4 in its first week, and had the second lowest first-week sales of her career behind "Automatic / Time Will Tell." However, it was her first single since "Dareka no Negai Ga Kanau Koro" to chart more than three consecutive or non-consecutive weeks in the "Top 10 Oricon Singles" chart. By the end of May 2007, "Boku wa Kuma" had sold 147,041 copies. Despite initially slow sales, it was nonetheless her most successful single since "Be My Last" (2005) and has surpassed the sales of her-than previous two singles, "Passion" and "Keep Tryin."


2007-2008: Heart Station
On February 28, 2007, Utada released her 18th Japanese single "Flavor Of Life ." The ballad version of "Flavor Of Life" was featured as the insert song for the second season of the popular Japanese drama, Hana Yori Dango 2. It was a major comeback for Utada, garnering the largest overall success in her career with the most combined airplay, physical sales, and downloads. "Flavor Of Life" sold extremely well physically, placing #1 on the weekly Oricon charts with first week sales of 270,000+ units. It remained #1 on the chart for three consecutive weeks. By its seventh week of charting, Utada's total CD single sales surpassed 15 million, making her the #3 solo or female artist in sales.[citation needed] An annual EMI record report on July 29, 2007 mentioned the immense digital success of “Flavor Of Life,” citing it as one of the reasons why EMI’s digital revenue expanded by 69% this year in Japan. In April 2007, "Flavor Of Life" became the highest-selling Japanese downloadable single of all time (in excess of 7.7 million downloads by July 2007). Combining its digital downloads with physical CD sales, it sold well past 8,300,000 copies in total, marking the all-time combination sales record for a single in Japan. Oricon announced that "Flavor Of Life" was the second best-selling single of 2007 in Japan, selling 644,259 copies. A Japan Music Station three-hour Special aired in October of 2007 ranked the Top Tear-Inducing Songs Ever by the viewers and listners, with "Flavor Of Life" ranking #1 despite its than short-term history[34]. It was also ranked #1 in HMV Japan's 2007 Bestseller's List for Singles[35]. Flavor Of Life swept every major digital music sale ranking imaginable as well, topping out Japanese PC Download Service MORA's (2nd most used only to Itunes Japan) 2007 Year-End Chart (the Original Version #1 and the Ballad Version #5)[36], GIGA's (a chaku-uta service) 2007 Yearly Chart[37], and Itunes Japan (Original Version #1 and Ballad Version rounding near the end of the top 10 at #9). It would also later win the "Single of the Year" and "PC Download Song of Year" Honors at the 22nd Nihon Gold Disc Awards

On April 20, 2007 a new song "Kiss & Cry" was announced and later featured in the 2007 "Freedom Cup Noodles CM", the same tie-in of her first Japanese digital single, "This is Love." On June 30, "Kiss & Cry" became her second digital single to be released in Japan, and later her fourth double A-side single. After multiple delays, "Beautiful World / Kiss & Cry" debuted on August 29, 2007. It reached #3 on the weekly rankings with 93,518 copies sold and has sold over 234,000 copies to date. "Beautiful World" was the theme song for the first "Rebuild of Evangelion" movie, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. The single's B-side, "Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) -2007 Mix- would be used as a theme for the CM trailers promoting "Rebuild of Evangelion". The song, originally featured on the "Distance" single, "Wait & See ~Risk~," was remastered with new background music for the tie-in. "Beautiful World / Kiss & Cry" was the #2 female single of 2007 in Japan behind her own "Flavor Of Life." Utada was also voted "#1 Favorite Artist of 2007" by Oricon's annual readers poll, three years after she was last voted #1 on the poll.

On September 25, 2007, Utada stated in her blog that she visited New York and that she was talking with producers and executives at Island/Def Jam about recording her third English album (confirming rampant rumors earlier this year about a possible follow-up to Exodus).[40] Official schedules for promotion, recording, and release have yet to be announced. On November 13, 2007, Island Def Jam Records announced on her official English website a re-make collaboration with American R&B artist Ne-Yo, titled "Do You" from his latest 2007 album, Because of You. The track was digitally released in Japan on November 21.

USEN, in commemoration of Utada entering her 10th year as a professional singer/songwriter in Japan, gave away free Chaku-Uta downloadable copies of her debut single “Automatic” between December 7 and 10, 2007, which sold in excess of 500,000 downloads[43]. According to EMI, Utada cumulatively sold 12 million digital ringtones and songs in 2007, making her the first Japanese artist ever to have this many digital sales in one year.[5] In addition to her phenomenal digital success, Utada's physical single sales for 2007 were the highest of any solo or female artist in Japan with combined sales of "Flavor Of Life", "Beautiful World/Kiss & Cry", and Boku Wa Kuma" coming to 944,062 copies. To partially detail her download sales, Utada had an astonishing four entries in the Top 15 of the 2007 Yearly Chart Rankings of iTunes Japan, with "Flavor Of Life" at #1 (making this her second year at the top, much like her 2006 single "Keep Tryin'";), "Beautiful World" at #3, "Flavor Of Life -Ballad Version-" at #9, and "Kiss & Cry" at #14

Utada released her 20th Japanese single, Heart Station / Stay Gold, on February 20, 2008. The second A-side, "Stay Gold" was used to promote Kao's new Asience hair care line, while "Heart Station" was used in the 2008 Recochoku ringtone download service commercial.

"Heart Station" is also the name of her fifth Japanese album released on March 19, 2008. There are a total of 13 tracks on Heart Station, with 6 of them being previous singles and 1 being a bonus track. The album's official tracklist was revealed via her website on February 19, 2008[47]. The album's opening track, "Fight the Blues" was its pre-release promotional single, and aired on Japanese radio and was available for download via USEN on March 3, 2008 . On March 1, 2008, her official Japanese site disclosed the official magazine promotional list for Heart Station, with a a large amount of 30 magazines hosting a standard short Q&A with artist's picture while four will have exclusive interviews and longer photoshoots (including the aforementioned "ROCKIN' ON JAPAN" and a cover + 20 page exclusive for CD Data)

On February 27, 2008, "Heart Station" had the honor of being the newly-branched Billboard Japan's first #1 hit for the Hot 100 Airplay Charts[51]. Later on March 9, 2008, a new Livedoor article stated that "Heart Station,” was the most played song on Japanese radio in the month of February. The song recorded 1,064 plays, the only song to cross the one thousand threshold that month. This also brings the monthly total airplay above her own previous record month of 1,037 plays for 2002’s smash hit “Traveling". On March 4th, 2008, Utada's 2007 hit single "Flavor Of Life" was honored with the Japan Gold Disc Single of the Year awards, and was also awardec "PC Download Song of the Year," the former honor being her first to be endowed since "Be My Last" in 2006. Her official Japnese site was updated March 9, 2008 with news of Part II of her 10th anniversary free Chaku-Uta campaign providing free downloads of her signature hit 1999 single “First Love,” with this piece of the campaign officially running through the 13th. Additionally, all songs from her “First Love” through “Deep River” albums are also available to purchase as Chaku-Uta Clips and Chaku-Uta Full downloads to Japanese cell phone users exclusively

According to a Yahoo! JP article, an extremely popular Japanese social networking service called Mixi (similar to Facebook), is now collaborating with Utada Hikaru and EMI Music Japan to celebrate her 10th anniversary as an artist as well as to promote her album, "Heart Station". The interesting campaign that was created between them commenced March 10th (the day the article was published) and ends March 17, 2008 that presented a special collaboration logo that replaced the normal Mixi logo on Mixi Mobile phones (who’s monthly user access is in excess of 6 million), prominently displaying “Utada Hikaru 10th Anniversary.” Links to the free “First Love” Chaku-Uta downloads are also present, helping to promote that campaign where the ringtones may be gifted to others, in time for White Day. In addition, members who write journal entries recalling their memories of their own "first love” are automatically entered to win special Utada and Mixi prizes

To further promo the album "Prisoner Of Love," is officially confirmed as the theme song to the upcoming Japanese drama "Last Friends", premiering April 10, 2008.[/edit][edit]Last edit by Tatsumaki4 on Friday 05 Sep, 2008 at 22:27 +1.4%[/edit][edit] Early life
Utada Hikaru was born in New York to Japanese parents with roots in the Japanese music industry. Her father, Teruzane Utada, was a record producer. Her mother, Junko Utada, was an enka singer, performing under the stage name "Keiko Fuji." Junko Utada’s mother, and Hikaru’s grandmother, was a blind shamisen player (ごぜ, or goze). Utada Hikaru made her first professional recording at the age of twelve. She did her recordings with her mother, releasing songs under a band named “U3” (also known as Utada 3) until 1996 when she started her first solo project, "I’ll be Stronger." The "Cookin’ With Moses Vocal" from this project was called the "Cookin’ With Gas Vocal" on the promotional release. "I’ll Be Stronger" was the first song Utada Hikaru wrote. It was released under the artist name "Cubic U," a mathematical reference to her being the third Utada 'power,' which was Hikaru’s pseudonym before becoming a superstar in Japan. The song failed to release in the United States, and in 1997, she started her next project. Her goddaughter, Ayani Saiyuki helps her with some of her music. She is currently attending Polytechnic High.


1998: Precious
Cubic U released her debut single "Close to You," which was a cover of The Carpenters' song. She then released her debut album Precious, but it failed to be released in the United States due to restructuring issues at her then record label Capitol Records. In an MTV interview (on MTV’s You Hear It First, October 2004), Utada explained: "Someone in Japan heard it—at a Japanese record company—and he said, 'Oh, can't you write in Japanese? You speak Japanese… And I didn’t want to say 'no,' so I had to try it!" She released Precious in Japan on January 28, 1998, and then later re-released it on March 31, 1999 to much better success. It has sold 702,060 copies to date in Japan, making it a significant hit for an all-English album in that market.

Utada moved to Tokyo in late 1998 and attended Seisen International School, and later the American School in Japan, while continuing to record on a new contract with Toshiba-EMI. She soon made her mark on Japanese music with her phenomenally successful single, "Automatic / Time Will Tell." Over 2,063,000 units have sold cumulatively of its two versions, making it the 2nd most successful single by a solo female artist in Japanese music history, behind Namie Amuro’s "Can You Celebrate?", and also stands as the most successful debut single ever released in the country.


1999-2000: First Love
Two months later, "Movin' on without you," which was a tie-in with a popular Nissan Car television commercial, was released on February 17, 1999 and would clear 1-million confirmed units with its two cumulative versions: another 8cm and 12cm dual release, and became her second platinum single and first #1 single. This was soon followed by her much-anticipated official studio debut album which came out the following month, March 1999, titled First Love, which sold over five million copies from March to April 1999, placing Utada among the 100 wealthiest people in Japan. First Love was not only the fastest selling debut album in Japanese history,[citation needed] but also had the highest initial first-week and overall sales for a debut album, achieving multi-platinum status in its first week of release. Utada would be noted in the Guinness Book of World Records 2000 for being the "Most Popular Singer in Asia."

A month after the album First Love was released, the song "First Love" was released as a single, mostly because of popular demand, and sold 804,000 units cumulatively of its 8cm and 12cm version. First Love was Utada’s only album to have merely three single releases, all her subsequent work would contain at least four singles. In addition to the album reaching #1 status on the daily, weekly and monthly charts of the Oricon Top 200, Utada also broke the record for units sold of a single album in Japan by the year’s end (over 7.650 million units), all by age 16, which record she still holds to this day. First Love is the most commercially successful debut CD album, and most commercially successful album overall by a Japanese artist, in Japanese music history, having sold over 10 million copies throughout Asia, with nearly 8 million copies sold in Japan alone. The year ended for Utada on a high note, being ranked #5 on Japanese radio station "Tokio Hot 100 Airplay's" Top 100 Artists of the 20th Century by the station and its listeners[9]

Eight months after "First Love" was released, Utada then released her fourth Japanese-language single, "Addicted To You." It broke the million mark in its first week, making it the fastest selling single of all time by a solo or female artist in Japan.[citation needed] It also hit #1 on the Oricon Singles Chart for two consecutive weeks (a personal first) and eventually sold 1,784,000 copies. It remains her most successful single of all time. On April 19, 2000, Utada released her first of only two singles for that year, "Wait & See ~Risk~." It also reached #1 on the Oricon Sinlges with her second highest debut on that particular chart, and would go on to sell 1,662,000 copies, her largest-selling single that year. This single would later be ranked #6 on Oricon's list of 10 Best-Selling Singles from January 1, 1999 to April 24, 2006. A month later, she released a half single "Remix: Fly Me to the Moon" in English and Toshiba-EMI released an animated music video for the single version of Fly Me to the Moon. The single was a limited edition release of 20,000 units, but sold out rapidly while hitting a chart peak of #16 on the Oricon. The follow-up "For You / Time Limit," her second double A-sided single, was released in late June and proved much more successful by becoming her fourth #1 hit (her second single to reach #1 two consecutive weeks). It was her last single in 2000 and it eventually sold 888,650 units. In July-August 2000, Utada decided to go on her first major headlining tour entitled "Bohemian Summer Circuit Live 2000". The tickets for all the July concert showings sold out within ninety minutes on April 22, 2000 with the following day resulting in all the August tickets selling out in under seventy-five minutes[12]. Utada would temporarily return to New York City just after "For You/Time Limit"'s release to attend Columbia University as a freshman, but finding her break into Japanese music scene "easier than expected," she left after a year to pursue her music career.


2001: Distance
In early 2001, Utada released what would be the final Distance era single, "Can You Keep a Secret?" on February 16, 2001. It brought her #1 hit count up to five (her third single to stay #1 two weeks), and became her fifth single to exceed a million units in sales, raking in an eventual 1.484 million units, and was #10 on Oricon's Top Ten List of Best-Selling Singles from January 1, 1999 to April 24, 2006[14][15]. A month later, she released her second album, "Distance," on March 28, 2001, after nearly a two year hiatus. It was awarded with the largest first-week sales for any album in Japanese music history, with over 3.02 million units sold. At the end of 2001, it became the most sold album for any J-music artist worldwide or in the residential industry, with 4.469 million copies sold in Japan alone. She had the #1 single and album of the year as well in Japan, for Distance and its last released single, "Can You Keep A Secret?" Distance is also the fourth best-selling album of all time in Japan.[17] The video for Utada's 2001 song "Can You Keep a Secret?" received some attention as part of "International Week," which coincided with the 2001 EMAs on the American channel MTV2. The video's airplay was likely Utada's first chance of exposure in the United States. In 2001, Utada also did a duet with Foxy Brown tited "Blow My Whistle" and featured on the Rush Hour 2 soundtrack.


2002-2003: Deep River
After Distance, Utada quickly released the single which was dedicated to the female victim, Utada's fan, of a murder case in Ikeda, Osaka "Final Distance."[citation needed] After that, she released "Traveling," "Hikari," and "Sakura Drops/Letters" for her 2002 follow-up album, Deep River. With the exception of "Final Distance" (#2 peak), they all became instant #1 smashes on the Oricon singles chart, selling a combined total of about 2.8 million physical units by the end of 2002.[citation needed] In May 2002, she became sick right before the release of Deep River and underwent surgery after being diagnosed with an ovarian tumor. During this period, she had to put on hold her TV appearances and other promotional activities. In June 2002, just over a year and a month after "Distance," the album was released. While there were no TV appearances, she promoted her album in magazine and radio interviews. The Oricon count of the album was another amazing first-week sales debut for Utada, with 2.35 million sold for the week post its release day. Oricon reports that sales eventually surpassed 3.60 million, making her the only singer or group in Japanese music history to have three consecutive albums surpass the triple-platinum (3 million) sold mark, by RIAJ standards. It was also her third consecutive time to hold the #1 position on Oricon's Yearly Albums chart and became the eighth best selling album of all time in Japan.


In 2003, Utada's promotional and personal life schedules got more active due to her marriage and an imposing agreement with Island Records in America to release a proper full-English debut album. New Japanese-language singles would therefore come few and far between, but Utada did release "Colors" on January 29, 2003, which was her only single release for 2003. This song was distinctive because it featured heavy ethereal and experimental tones for the first time in Utada's discography, something that would display itself fruitfully in all the ULTRA BLUE era singles. It became her longest charting single ever with a 45 week trajectory on the Oricon Singles chart, selling 881,000 copies, and was #3 on the Yearly Singles chart.

2004-2005: Exodus
Her first singles compilation album Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol.1 was released on March 31, 2004. It became the best-selling album of 2004 in Japan, making her the only solo or group artist to reach #1 four times on the yearly charts. It was also the first compilation album to reach #1 in six years on the yearly charts, and the first compilation album to reach #1 in twenty six years by a female artist. Its success was a particularly amazing achievement, since it received very little promotion and contained no new material or photos. Moreover, it charted longer on the Oricon Albums chart longer than any other Utada release to date, over 2 years. It was also her first to debut at #1 on the United World Charts, the first time in music history for any Asian artist.The album would go on to sell over 2.575 million units in Japan, making it the 34th best-selling album ever in the country. A month later, on April 21, she released her only Japanese single in 2004, "Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro," which topped the singles chart for two consecutive weeks and sold 365,000 units by the year's end and was also the main theme song for Casshern, her now ex-husband's directorial debut.

In mid-2004, Utada moved back to New York, and began work on a new recording contract with Island Def Jam Music Group. On October 5, 2004, she released her North American English-language debut album, Exodus, under the name "Utada," which was her new American-given artist title at the Universal Convention[22]. It was released nearly a month earlier, on September 9 in Japan, with a special booklet and housed in a cardboard slipcase. In an MTV interview, Utada said: "I don't think it's the music that I'm concerned about. It's obviously that I look really different and there really aren't any completely Asian people [who are popular singers in the U.S.] right now." Exodus became Utada's fourth consecutive release to debut at #1 and boast 500,000+ first-week sales. It had a chart run of twenty weeks on the Oricon and saw her reach #1 on the World United Charts a second time, eventually selling 1.35 million copies. In spite of enlisting the help of Timbaland to produce and co-write some songs, her American debut as an Island Records artist was met with indifference by the American market, almost due to the fact that there was virtually no promotion on her record label's part, selling a minimal 30,000 units. "Easy Breezy" was released as the lead single in early August 2004, peaking at #9 Billboard Hot Dance/Club Airplay chart[citation needed], followed up by "Devil Inside" a month and two weeks later. "Exodus '04" was released at the end of June 2005 and featured remixes from The Scumfrog, Richard Vission, JJ Flores and Peter Bailey. In the UK, Mercury added another 2 remixes for "You make me want to be a man" in the original album Exodus 04, titled "You Make Me Want To Be A Man [Bloodshy & Avant Mix]" and "You Make Me Want To Be A Man [Junior Jack Mix]." By the end of the year Utada was voted "#1 Favorite Artist of 2004" by Oricon's annual readers poll

A year after the international releases and promotion of Exodus, Utada moved back to Tokyo and returned to the Japanese music scene with the release of her 14th Japanese single, "Be My Last," originally rumored to be a double A-side. The title track was used as the main theme for the movie Spring Snow (春の雪 Haru no Yuki). Despite topping the Oricon charts, "Be My Last" did not meet commercial expectations, failing to sell over 30% of pre-ordered shipments. However, "Be My Last" became the second most downloaded song via PC of 2005 in Japan. In mid-December, she released her second Japanese single for 2005 single "Passion," which was used as the theme song for the Japanese version of video game Kingdom Hearts II. Depite the large tie-in that was akin to Hikari, the single only reached #4 on the Oricon Top 200 singles charts, selling just over 112,000 copies total, her lowest-selling Japanese single to date. In addition to "Passion," Utada composed an English version, "Sanctuary," that was used for overseas advertisement for Kingdom Hearts II, which used different lyrics and style of background vocals.

The fourth single from her English Exodus album, "You Make Me Want to Be a Man," was released in October 2005. "Devil Inside" became a club smash in the U.S. and topped the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Airplay charts, and remains her most successful single release in the U.S.. Both the Exodus album and "You Make Me Want to Be a Man" single were released in the U.K., with different artwork from the USA and Japanese versions. In October 2005, "You Make Me Want to Be a Man" became another #1 on the Billboard Dance chart and was featured on the Japanese Nintendo DS Launch Campaign.


2006: Ultra Blue
On February 22, 2006 Utada released her 16th Japanese single, "Keep Tryin'." The single was used to promote Lismo! au Listen Mobile Service. "Keep Tryin'" peaked at #2 on the Oricon charts, selling a sizeable 125,000 copies total over Passion, still somewhat short in contrast to most all her earlier works. However, the digital sales were Utada's highest up to this point, clearing two-and-a-half million downloads, and spending the most weeks atop OnGen's digital charts at two and half months. "Keep Tryin'" also reached number one on iTunes Japan's year-end chart. "This Is Love", the opening track from Utada's then-upcoming Japanese studio album Ultra Blue became available for download on May 31, making it Utada's first digital sales-exclusive single (eventually becoming the ninth most downloaded song of 2006 at iTunes Japan) and was used to promote Ultra Blue, which was released on June 14, 2006 physically and June 28 digitally. The album contained "Colors" her lone 2003 single and "Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro" her lone 2004 single. Unlike her previous Japanese-language albums, Ultra Blue did not have an eponymous track to the album title. Instead, the ballad "Blue" was recorded. The song and album featured Utada's new experimental pop and dance tone, becoming its central theme. Ultra Blue sold 500,317 copies in the first week, easily topping the Oricon Daily, Weekly and Monthly charts, and becoming Utada's third #1 album debut on the United World Charts.[24] in addition to giving Utada her sixth consecutive chart-topping album to sell in excess of 500,000 units for first-week sales, setting a new record. It also charted a second week at #1 on the Oricon Daily and Weekly charts, selling a further 157,000 units. By July 13, barely a month post its release, her record label Toshiba EMI published a report confirming Ultra Blue had sold over one million copies worldwide and four million digital ringtones already[28]. After fifty-three weeks on the Oricon chart, Ultra Blue sold 910,998 units in Japan and was certified triple-platinum by the RIAJ, making it the highest-selling original studio album by a Japanese female artist in 2006.

Ultra Blue was also Utada's first album to be available on the iTunes Japan online music store, where it was immensely successful, charting at #4 on the 2006 yearly download rankings[30]. It was the best selling original studio album by a female artist in 2006, and the seventh best selling album of the year according to 'Oricon Style' magazine rankings. The EMI Group released their Annual Report for 2007 on July 29, and with it came news that Utada’s album Ultra Blue had sold 1.3 million units worldwide, making it one of EMI’s 10th best-selling album of the past year.

The "Utada United 2006" nationwide tour commenced June 30, 2006 and ended on September 12, 2006 after Utada's performances at Yoyogi. Surprisingly, this was Utada's only other concert tour besides her debut tour with the "Bohemian Summer 2000" concert series, although she did perform one concert at the Budokan Dome in 2004. Aside from her Japanese work, the tour's set list featured three tracks from her 2004 English-language album, Exodus. The dates were all cumulatively announced, and ticket sales started on May 28, 2006 with the majority of venues selling out in less than two hours.[citation needed] On September 20, 2006, Exodus was re-released in Japan in addition to releasing "Utada Hikaru Single Collection" Volume 4 in September 2006, which entered the Oricon Music DVD charts at #1, selling an approximate first-week estimate of 22,000 units.[citation needed]On November 22, 2006, Utada released her 17th Japanese single, "ぼくはくま (, Boku wa Kuma?, lit. I'm a Bear)." The song tied with "Passion" as her lowest charting single, placing #4 in its first week, and had the second lowest first-week sales of her career behind "Automatic / Time Will Tell." However, it was her first single since "Dareka no Negai Ga Kanau Koro" to chart more than three consecutive or non-consecutive weeks in the "Top 10 Oricon Singles" chart. By the end of May 2007, "Boku wa Kuma" had sold 147,041 copies. Despite initially slow sales, it was nonetheless her most successful single since "Be My Last" (2005) and has surpassed the sales of her-than previous two singles, "Passion" and "Keep Tryin."


2007-2008: Heart Station
On February 28, 2007, Utada released her 18th Japanese single "Flavor Of Life ." The ballad version of "Flavor Of Life" was featured as the insert song for the second season of the popular Japanese drama, Hana Yori Dango 2. It was a major comeback for Utada, garnering the largest overall success in her career with the most combined airplay, physical sales, and downloads. "Flavor Of Life" sold extremely well physically, placing #1 on the weekly Oricon charts with first week sales of 270,000+ units. It remained #1 on the chart for three consecutive weeks. By its seventh week of charting, Utada's total CD single sales surpassed 15 million, making her the #3 solo or female artist in sales.[citation needed] An annual EMI record report on July 29, 2007 mentioned the immense digital success of “Flavor Of Life,” citing it as one of the reasons why EMI’s digital revenue expanded by 69% this year in Japan. In April 2007, "Flavor Of Life" became the highest-selling Japanese downloadable single of all time (in excess of 7.7 million downloads by July 2007). Combining its digital downloads with physical CD sales, it sold well past 8,300,000 copies in total, marking the all-time combination sales record for a single in Japan. Oricon announced that "Flavor Of Life" was the second best-selling single of 2007 in Japan, selling 644,259 copies. A Japan Music Station three-hour Special aired in October of 2007 ranked the Top Tear-Inducing Songs Ever by the viewers and listners, with "Flavor Of Life" ranking #1 despite its than short-term history[34]. It was also ranked #1 in HMV Japan's 2007 Bestseller's List for Singles[35]. Flavor Of Life swept every major digital music sale ranking imaginable as well, topping out Japanese PC Download Service MORA's (2nd most used only to Itunes Japan) 2007 Year-End Chart (the Original Version #1 and the Ballad Version #5)[36], GIGA's (a chaku-uta service) 2007 Yearly Chart[37], and Itunes Japan (Original Version #1 and Ballad Version rounding near the end of the top 10 at #9). It would also later win the "Single of the Year" and "PC Download Song of Year" Honors at the 22nd Nihon Gold Disc Awards

On April 20, 2007 a new song "Kiss & Cry" was announced and later featured in the 2007 "Freedom Cup Noodles CM", the same tie-in of her first Japanese digital single, "This is Love." On June 30, "Kiss & Cry" became her second digital single to be released in Japan, and later her fourth double A-side single. After multiple delays, "Beautiful World / Kiss & Cry" debuted on August 29, 2007. It reached #3 on the weekly rankings with 93,518 copies sold and has sold over 234,000 copies to date. "Beautiful World" was the theme song for the first "Rebuild of Evangelion" movie, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. The single's B-side, "Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) -2007 Mix- would be used as a theme for the CM trailers promoting "Rebuild of Evangelion". The song, originally featured on the "Distance" single, "Wait & See ~Risk~," was remastered with new background music for the tie-in. "Beautiful World / Kiss & Cry" was the #2 female single of 2007 in Japan behind her own "Flavor Of Life." Utada was also voted "#1 Favorite Artist of 2007" by Oricon's annual readers poll, three years after she was last voted #1 on the poll.

On September 25, 2007, Utada stated in her blog that she visited New York and that she was talking with producers and executives at Island/Def Jam about recording her third English album (confirming rampant rumors earlier this year about a possible follow-up to Exodus).[40] Official schedules for promotion, recording, and release have yet to be announced. On November 13, 2007, Island Def Jam Records announced on her official English website a re-make collaboration with American R&B artist Ne-Yo, titled "Do You" from his latest 2007 album, Because of You. The track was digitally released in Japan on November 21.

USEN, in commemoration of Utada entering her 10th year as a professional singer/songwriter in Japan, gave away free Chaku-Uta downloadable copies of her debut single “Automatic” between December 7 and 10, 2007, which sold in excess of 500,000 downloads[43]. According to EMI, Utada cumulatively sold 12 million digital ringtones and songs in 2007, making her the first Japanese artist ever to have this many digital sales in one year.[5] In addition to her phenomenal digital success, Utada's physical single sales for 2007 were the highest of any solo or female artist in Japan with combined sales of "Flavor Of Life", "Beautiful World/Kiss & Cry", and Boku Wa Kuma" coming to 944,062 copies. To partially detail her download sales, Utada had an astonishing four entries in the Top 15 of the 2007 Yearly Chart Rankings of iTunes Japan, with "Flavor Of Life" at #1 (making this her second year at the top, much like her 2006 single "Keep Tryin'";), "Beautiful World" at #3, "Flavor Of Life -Ballad Version-" at #9, and "Kiss & Cry" at #14

Utada released her 20th Japanese single, Heart Station / Stay Gold, on February 20, 2008. The second A-side, "Stay Gold" was used to promote Kao's new Asience hair care line, while "Heart Station" was used in the 2008 Recochoku ringtone download service commercial.

"Heart Station" is also the name of her fifth Japanese album released on March 19, 2008. There are a total of 13 tracks on Heart Station, with 6 of them being previous singles and 1 being a bonus track. The album's official tracklist was revealed via her website on February 19, 2008[47]. The album's opening track, "Fight the Blues" was its pre-release promotional single, and aired on Japanese radio and was available for download via USEN on March 3, 2008 . On March 1, 2008, her official Japanese site disclosed the official magazine promotional list for Heart Station, with a a large amount of 30 magazines hosting a standard short Q&A with artist's picture while four will have exclusive interviews and longer photoshoots (including the aforementioned "ROCKIN' ON JAPAN" and a cover + 20 page exclusive for CD Data)

On February 27, 2008, "Heart Station" had the honor of being the newly-branched Billboard Japan's first #1 hit for the Hot 100 Airplay Charts[51]. Later on March 9, 2008, a new Livedoor article stated that "Heart Station,” was the most played song on Japanese radio in the month of February. The song recorded 1,064 plays, the only song to cross the one thousand threshold that month. This also brings the monthly total airplay above her own previous record month of 1,037 plays for 2002’s smash hit “Traveling". On March 4th, 2008, Utada's 2007 hit single "Flavor Of Life" was honored with the Japan Gold Disc Single of the Year awards, and was also awardec "PC Download Song of the Year," the former honor being her first to be endowed since "Be My Last" in 2006. Her official Japnese site was updated March 9, 2008 with news of Part II of her 10th anniversary free Chaku-Uta campaign providing free downloads of her signature hit 1999 single “First Love,” with this piece of the campaign officially running through the 13th. Additionally, all songs from her “First Love” through “Deep River” albums are also available to purchase as Chaku-Uta Clips and Chaku-Uta Full downloads to Japanese cell phone users exclusively

According to a Yahoo! JP article, an extremely popular Japanese social networking service called Mixi (similar to Facebook), is now collaborating with Utada Hikaru and EMI Music Japan to celebrate her 10th anniversary as an artist as well as to promote her album, "Heart Station". The interesting campaign that was created between them commenced March 10th (the day the article was published) and ends March 17, 2008 that presented a special collaboration logo that replaced the normal Mixi logo on Mixi Mobile phones (who’s monthly user access is in excess of 6 million), prominently displaying “Utada Hikaru 10th Anniversary.” Links to the free “First Love” Chaku-Uta downloads are also present, helping to promote that campaign where the ringtones may be gifted to others, in time for White Day. In addition, members who write journal entries recalling their memories of their own "first love” are automatically entered to win special Utada and Mixi prizes

To further promo the album "Prisoner Of Love," is officially confirmed as the theme song to the upcoming Japanese drama "Last Friends", premiering April 10, 2008.[/edit]
