Best J-pop Artists and BandsThis is a subjective list of my and maybe even your favorite J-pop bands or solo singers.
The only Japanese band that reached worldwide mainstream music (at least for the genre) and still nowhere near their peak. Highest respect
I love baby metal!
I have been listening to Perfume since 2013 and they really don't get as much recognition as they should (if that makes sense). Their performances are creative and they make me smile every time I listen to them sing. If you know someone who is interested in electropop, techno, Jpop or pop in general, let them know about Perfume. It might be strange to them at first because they don't understand (I'm learning Japanese) but its worth listening to ^_^
I think Perfume got all in jpop : music, voice, dance, video music, live are amazing! And not forget, looks are important in Jpop industry but I rather the music and live.
Their songs are so catchy!
Scary, yet quite catchy
I was introduced to Jpop and Ceui was among the first that I listened to. I continue to explore more songs but Ceui is one of my favorites and comes in my top 3 list! Even still, I listen to her great songs and they just calm me down if I am in an angry mood (two great calming songs are God Bless and Energy). Her songs are great, calming, and soothing. Some can even make you cry because of the words and flow. Highly recommended! In the future, please continue to look for more great songs by one of my favorites, Ceui!
I love Dream when they are just three members... First Japanese girlgroup that I know, bring so much memory especially in anime InuYasha and Hikaru no Go great high pitch vocal, I actually prefer Dream than Ayumi Hamasaki in avex trax.
Arashi are probably one of most successful Japanese boy bands of all time.
I like their music and all the members are adorable. I especially love Jun and Sho
Her songs actually have a story to them instead of just random words shoved in there for no reason.
Everything about m.o.v.e is great. It's hard to put them in just one genre. Yuri sings beatifully and motsu is an amazing rapper. Truly a great group and it's a shame they disbanded.
Very good band! Daisy X Daisy is my fave but they ain't on the list.
How could this band be so low?!
My favorite band
Their songs are so catchy like Melissa for example was a masterpiece.
Make great music!
It was for this band I would have never gotten through some of the hardest moments of my life
You can't have a best of J-pop without Kyary.
Boi why is he down here
I love their songs,
Best girl group in asia
