An extremely popular female J-pop singer in Japan. She writes all her own lyrics, they aren't too brilliant, but very poignant(unlike what you would hear on mainstream american radio). She has a very high-pitched voice which to some people, may be pleasant and to some, annoying. She composes some of her own songs under the name CREA.

Her record company Avex uses her as a marketing tool, in which she realizes in her song 'everywhere nowhere'. She has one of the best-selling albums in Japan. She has 6 albums, 1 mini-album, 2 'BEST' albums, 19 remix albums, and 35 singles, and that's only to date. She is a powerhouse 'media-whore', she is the spokeswoman of Panasonic, and has been spokeswoman for many products since her debut in 1998.

Some may say she is the Japanese 'Britney Spears'. I disagree, for she is much more sane. She does dress like her, (not half as bad though) but when music is concerned there is no similarity. Ayumi puts solid emotion into her voice, her songs have good melodies and such, packed with simple, yet pleasant guitar solos. She is very versatile and re-invents herself from time-to-time. She has done trance, alternative, hard rock, R&B, etc. And yet still keeping her style. Unlike most J-pop stars, she rarely uses English in her songs (her song titles, however are almost all in English)

When some people think of J-pop, they might automatically think 'cutesy', 'bubble-gum', 'shiny-outfits'. It's not always true in Ayu's case. Her music can be enjoyed by both men and women of all ages, cultures, etc. So generally, although Ayu shares some characteristics of pop stars all around the world, she has a mind of her own. And unlike most pop stars, has control of her career. She is also very hot, considering her age. Plastic surgery or not, who cares?

I recommend this artist. Albums such as 'Duty', 'I am...', and 'LOVEppears' are highly recommended.

The Japanese queen of pop. Ayumi Hamasaki began her career as a model, and eventually became a singer. The first single of her entire career as a singer was called "NOTHING FROM NOTHING," but her first single with the record label Avex Trax was called "poker face."
She can be seen on most billboards, television sets and magazines. Her profits alone make up more than 50% of Avex's total income.
Ayumi Hamasaki has been writing her own lyrics ever since she debuted with Avex and had started composing her own songs in her 4th album, "I am..."
She is not like Utada Hikaru, who is known for her voice, and Amuro Namie, who is known for both her voice and her dancing. Instead, she makes each fan feel like he/she personally knows her. Each song is like a look into her every day life.
Her symbol is a big "A."

Also refered to as: Hamasaki Ayumi (usually refers to Ayumi herself and her back up singers, Peko and Yoko, and her guitarist, bass player, drum player and keyboard/piano player(s) who perform with her everywhere she goes.), Ayumi, Ayu-chan or just Ayu.

Ayumi hamasaki is Japan's darling queen pop star. She was first modeling and acting, but now she is singing. her songs are all written by her and she gives her effort 100%!
