Utada the digital master

21 04 2009

jg_utadaJpop news reported that Japanese pop idol Hikaru Utada has now sold more digital copies of her music than any other recording artist in history. Reportedly Utada sold over $7 million copies of her single, “Flavor of Life,” in February, and her numbers continue to climb, already surpassing  the $10 million mark. 

Utada is gaining interest in the U.S. again with her second English album, “This is the One,” ironically named after her first English album generally fell short of sales expectations. J pop has a strong niche market in the U.S.. but Utada’s people are hoping she’ll be the one to make a more mainstream splash.
