Post your favorite female vocalists!
My lovely alien goddess!
Samefagging to add more Icelandic music.
ayumi is godlike. it is such a fucking shame she's going deaf and i applaud her courage continuing to sing through it all. vid related brought me to tears when i heard it (i wish i could have live) and it's now my goal to see her before she retires. she's like jpop mozart!
She's been going deaf for the last twenty years though right? I don't think it's made a noticeable difference on her ability.
Unfortunately, the only thing that's changed about Ayumi is how the Japanese public view her as a has-been and old try-hard so she'll never again be respected as a legend. It's too bad because she's aging so gracefully and remains extremely talented.
>one of my fav songs of all time
IIRC it came out this year that she's going to go deaf totally sooner than later. I think people feel that way because she's basically stayed with her style since she started. She wasn't respected in the beginning either, people accused her of being a talentless idol and she got tons of flack for following and influencing gyaru fashion. She has tons of passion and I think she doesn't really care as much about they hyper-fame she had fading. She's very beautiful, strong and genuine.
I can't believe she's going deaf for good, that's breaking my heart.
I also didn't know she wasn't as respected as I thought. I'm not really into Japanese culture and media, so I was unaware of that. Feels bad, man. She's amazing.
Anons who understand jpop better than me, are Namie Amuro, Koda Kumi and Mia Nakashima still relevant?
i know namie amuro is retiring.
People mentioning jpop
>>not mentioning Perfume
i don't like nakata so i'm not that into them…or capsule…or kyary.
i need more female vocalists in my life
I think Koda is more focused on being a mom right now.
Good taste, anon. I'm also a fan of Anri and Momoko Kikuchi.
She's one of the few youtubers that actually sound professionally trained and not autotuned to death. Unfortunately most of her covers are in german, which I don't speak.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fquy0YO6psUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPDZIVBcvfI
Sorry, I had to resurrect this thread just to post this lady. I know at the beginning it's like "what's so special about it", but just wait for it. or skip to about a minute in
>new album out
>becomes part of the hiphop-influenced milieu
I miss old Lykke Li
Beth Gibbons of Portishead
Jinjer is good but I don't expect many people to be into this kind of music. Also the lyrical breakdown of what the song means to her is kind of neat.
Aaah I love Mariya Takeuchi!
tfw got a strike on youtube for uploading one of her songs
rip the dream.
variety and miss M are such good albums!
my number one. i saw her on the divers tour and died. i met her afterwards. <3
