Ayumi and Kumi Koda's discographies are up on Spotify now guys I'm actually quite happy with this. it's such a relief as I literally had to plug onto my pc and download tracks here and there and it was such a pain in the @ss... !! I'm glad some Japanese labels are opening up on that sense!

Why are TWICE in the J-Pop thread? They're just releasing their generic Korean trash songs in Japanese. A pointless and utterly lazy release.
Girls' Generation
HyoYeonBritney Spears

Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

It is pointless (it isn't their real debut after all), but since they have three Japanese members, the label "have" to do it.

I was gonna ask what's been going on with jpop lately. Has there been anything remotely good ? Seems like Kpop really took the spotlight of Jpop forever

Well, Nakata release his solo debut album, "Digital Native"; other than that, no.

Admittedly, I'm on really actively anticipating anything that Ayu is gonna put out.

I'll always listen casually to some of my other old favourite singers, but I only really check for Ayu these days

I'm listening to Koda Kumi's new album. It's very disappointing.
