BoA needs a good hit song with decent promotion, i think ive stated it before but MASAYUME CHASING could be it, but they did a really bad work with the promotion timing and everything

They don't know Utada and Namie? What? lol


Yeaaaaa lol I was surprised. High schoolers more often know Namie and Utada but middle schoolers definitely don't. In Utada's case she hasn't released new music in 6 years (I can't believe it's been that long) and that's basically the later half of a 6th graders life haha So it's understandable why middle schoolers don't know Utada. Good thing she's coming out with new music soon though. I also live in the country side so exposure to media and pop culture is very different for these kids compared to the ones living in Tokyo and near there

I don't follow much of the newer Japanese artists so Namie, Ayumi, BoA and Utada are some of the ones I listen to the most.

^Me too! I'm still stuck in the golden J-Pop age with artists and bands that released in the late 90s early 2000s! :)

 

BoA was my first J-Pop Love actually <3

Not likely. Despite their success over the past few years Morning Musume, the group who are performing during the same episode as BoA haven't been invited to Music Station for years.

^It's okay. We're getting at least one Lookbook performance on Rythem Buzz.

 

Although fans might not be very pleased with this decision, but it's only going to reinforce Meri Kuri's status as an iconic Winter Song in Japan. And that's good in the long run. So, expect to see a Meri Kuri performance -once again- in 10 years (if BoA is still active)!

I flew to Japan from Canada on ANA airlines and they had Meri Kuri on board in their audio selections. It was inside a CD album called J-Pop Winter Songs.

 

Yes, Meri Kuri is pretty iconic.

Lookbook charted at #18 on Oricon Weekly, flopped.

 

I rarely hear about BoA these days in J-pop, she comes out of nowhere every Christmas to sing Meri Kuri and disappears again for a year. There are successful J-pop soloists active right now like Kana Nishino, JUJU, Shiina Ringo and Namie Amuro. Koda Kumi is kind of flopping. Utada is on hiatus, she had a child this year and is married to an Italian man. Ayumi Hamasaki is flopping and is busy with her American husband, she got divorced from her Austrian husband. I'm also part of the old-school J-pop fans, and in some Asian airlines you can hear VALENTI or Meri Kuri on the audio selections, BoA's old J-pop songs are available in Cathay Pacific last time I checked.

Not only does BoA need solid releases and a lot of promotion her activities need to be consistent like during her golden years, she can't keep pulling the disappearing act.

Lookbook sold just over 6,000 copies and her concert didn't even sell out. According to fan accounts unsold tickets were actually being sold at the door on the day of the concert.

SM, Avex and BoA seriously need to get it together. In Korea BoA's getting to the point where she may as well be known as that one singer with that one hit and in Japan she may as well be known as that one singer with that one Christmas song.
