I never change it, it's how the song is officially written as so I keep it like that.

^ It's okay.

Perfume also released their new album, COSMIC EXPLORER, a week or two back. It's... okay too. To be honest, they've really lost their shine for me. The last single they put out I truly cared for was Magic of Love, and the last album I appreciated in its entirety was JPN (and, to be honest, that was mostly due to the killer singles - the album tracks were meh).
Kendrick, Beyoncé, and Radiohead are giving me life right now.

Since Tokyo will be hosting the 2020 Olympics, what artist(s) do you think shall perform during the opening and/or closing ceremonies?

I listen to quite a lot of Japanese urban music so I can definitely help you out. :D

Like jpguy said, Kumi Koda is a must. She was my favourite J-Pop artist, nowadays I don't have a fav but I still like her :P

The following are great too:
Namie Amuro (she started off pop but had some R&B songs, then she went fully R&B for a while and nowadays I'd say mostly pop again)
AI
DOUBLE
Miliyah Kato
JAMOSA
ARIA (she used to be called Asuka when she started, and back then her music was Neo Soul, but after she changed her name she also glammed up her image and went fully urban)
LISA (one of the nicest voices ever but extremely underrated she is mostly R&B but has a lot of experimental music too)
m-flo (LISA used to be in that group for their first two albums)
Shion
YU-A (also try out the girl group she used to be in, they're called Foxxi misQ)
Thelma Aoyama
Lisa Yamaguchi
BENI
JASMINE
Alice
MINMI
EMI MARIA
YA-KYIM
SOULHEAD

I'll stop there before I overload you :P There's still a lot more but those I listed have a lot of great music!

I don't wanna brag about it but I bought FANTOME and I'm loving it, I think Utada s best album is HEART STATION though. That is a masterpiece from beginning to end.
She is so talented, any other great music by J females lately???
The latest Ayumi Hamasaki's releases are boring

I love Crystal Kay's VIVID album, and her newest, Shine, isn't too bad either. :)

I've been listening to all these J-Urban artists lately, I really enjoy Koda Kumi, JAMOSA and Miliyah Kato. I'm fond of DOUBLE as well but I can't find her music anywhere, she seems to be really obscure :lol:
