Death at Radio. When Ayumi can sell 50 million without whoring out 8000 albums and singles while releasing 2 albums a year let us know. And she has not sold more than Utada, who BTW, reached 50 million in records without single/album whoring, and releasing multiple albums a year.
And she hasn't sold more than Utada.
Hard work ethic isn't releasing billions of singles/albums, especially if you hardly go out and do any promotion, and that's exactly why Namie is doing appearances all while touring even being a divorced, single mother. I'm not here for queens who have to rush releases just to remain relevant.
