Power and courage in her song, that from her bottom of heart. All most songs she sing, write by herself. Many people like her, also many people don't like her. She is born for stage. No one can copy her. A lot of female singer in Asia, they may beauty and sexy than Ayu. May better voice than Ayu. But Ayu write more then 180 songs for herself. All those songs make Ayu in the last 13 years take 25 Top1 Hit in J-Pop. Even in Japan, people say "Only Ayu can broken Ayu's record. ".
Ayu has had a stunning career that dates back to the mid 90's, having released a generation of inspiring hit singles that will continue to touch the hearts and minds of people across the world. As the Empress of Pop gradually ages and slowly gives way to the next batch of mega singers following in her footsteps, her status as a legend will remain cemented in the memories of young people for the next century and beyond. - sapphirewhirlwind
She's an amazing singer and her performances are great. Ayumi Hamasaki is known for her amazing PV's and song, which most of it has been composed and directed by her. She controls mostly in most of her projects, and does still today. In Mid August, she's coming back with a new single called Progress. Look out for that!
Regardless of what others have to say, she still dominates Japan and she still is the Empress of Pop. The only Empress of Pop. :) Her music contain pure emotions (and she writes her own songs) whereas other J-POP artists can't put it as much emotion and probably don't even write their own lyrics. + She is amazing live.
Ayumi Hamasaki has been a huge influential key factor in what has made Asian Music popular today. After gracing the cover of TIME magazine in 2002, her music and universal appeal started to spread like wild fire. Breaking record after record, she still remains today one of Japan's top selling and well-liked artists.
She is indeed unique thanks to her great versatility. She always changes her image and musical style :from house, trance, pop, rock, dance to traditional, oriental, country, jazz, electro, techno etc.. Also, she has a very good voice and she writes all of her lyrics.
Ayumi Hamasaki still remains a huge part of my life, and her fans continue to stick by her and her music. She's completely dedicated to her fans, and her music. She once received an award for "Most influential artist in Asia" and that still rings true with me
