A New-York born singer who is widely popular in Japan. Her 1999 debut album "First Love" went on to sell roughly 10 million copies, making it the best-selling album in Japanese history. Two more albums released, and her popularity gave her the title "Japan's Madonna". Recently she has signed up with American record company Island Def Jam, and has released her American Devut album, "EXODUS". Though the sales in the U.S. were weak, it is known as the best-selling English album in Japanese history. Utada is far from over with her American career, with recent interviews in magazines, a new single, and a partnership MTV to create the world's first mobile series of music videos for their new mobile entertainment community entitled FLUX.
A surprise, her album Exodus contains interesting dance and pop music. She could be the first Japanese recording artist to really make it in the West." - Elton John
