What do you guys think about BoA's career for 2007?

its only October but so far, BoA has only released 2 singles. Sweet Impact in April, and Love Letter in September. her regular yearly album, Made in Twenty sold about 350K.

Do you guys think she'll be in the end of the year award shows?
i don't think Sweet Impact and MIT were particularly huge splashes.. Love Letter is doing fairly well, but compared to the competition, there are better selling singles. I know BoA didn't perform at the FNS Kayousai for 2006... and she had been performing in that show from 2001-2005.

Do you guys think she'll release another single before the year is over?
It seems her Avex contract will be over soon... do you think Avex will want to renew her contract?

i just wanted to hear what you guys think

Of course they'll want to renew it! I mean, sure her sales weren't as great as normal, but her popularity is huge in Japan... Plus, she doesn't just make them money from her albums and singles. She makes them money with advertisements and tv appearances too

well as i see it, all things come in good time. Everybody has their ups and downs at times. Knowing BoA, she'll be a smashing hit again with some nice singles and albums. I'm sure the contract will be renewed.

As far as the 2007 is going to end, BoA has released 5 new japanese song + MIT Album and at least 2 individual Korean Song...I would say it has been a great year for BoA..Then, She pick up an Anycall endorsement which is huge!!! :(
Yah, but the sales is not that record smashing as before...but I think she will get at least get an award for her this year..

Also, there are no reason for Avex to ditch BoA[Unless she called it quit herself]..At the age of 21, She is so young and got a long way to go...

Though I agree that I'm sure Avex will renew her contract, I highly doubt Avex is making much from her ad campaigns. That's pure profit for BoA and her management...unless you count those TV ads where clips from her Avex songs are used. :(

I'm pretty sure her contract will be renewed.

BoA isn't just a singer, she's an icon; and avex has her. :(

^Agreed. Besides, she's very talented. avex would be crazy not to renew her contract. She's selling pretty well too. (That really doesn't matter to me, just an observation.)

Uh...that's why they have what we call tie-ins. Majority of the advertisements BoA's featured in, they not only promote the product, but also the possibile next single (seeing as how not all the songs have been released....ie that one song from the Honda Commercial..and f l o w e r's english version). BoA gets a lot of endorsement deals, therefore she'll record new music for it, thus, making money for everyone part of the project, including avex.

Not sure if I'm being unclear or not.

Hm... you pull out a good point. I really do think Boa's 2007 hasn't been her best year by far, but I say its okay.
And yeah, I truthfully would laugh if they didn't renew it w/ her, because even if she's goin up or down, her stuff is going to go on for a long time, fans will want more!!!! NOW! haha not really that badly...
I rather liked Sweet Impact and Love Letter, I think it'll be okay.
YEAH GO BOA!!!

BoA will be fine... :thumbsup: she'her popularity in Japan has long been proven, and even after 7 years in te music industry, she's still going strong and will continue to impress & entertain us with good music... :lol: Besides, BoA is a very "expensive" person, i don't think Avex will just let go her like that, they'll be losing a lot of money then... XD XD

Yeah IMO 2007 is a pretty unexciting year. But I wish BoA best of luck in 2008, the end of the year is near. :thumbsup:

As for the award shows and all I don't think BoA is going to get anything this year, she didn't really do much this year and what she did do, she did with not the best results either. So yeah, lets hope 2008 pwns 8x more than 2007 for her.
