BoA's first two japanese albums are legendary cry7

She tried a debut in the US but her English album was filled with bad Britney rejects. Poor her, she was robbed cry5

Recommend me some good albums then pls 

Sorry was at work

 

first love, her first album is heavily rnb inspired. 

 

Deep River is also a real good album. It has Simple and Clean/Hikari

 

 

Then there’s her recent work which is pretty good. Less rnb and more.. poppy. 

 

 

 

Personal fave album is the her debut, True Love and Ultra Blue. moo1

Ultra Blue    546

In defense of Utada, Island/Def jam got her a record deal because she worked with Janet Jackson's producers on Distance (2001) and they thought she would make a typical early 2000 R&B album for them but She didn't, She made an experimental record instead. The label simply did'nt know how to promote her. Still manage to get that #1 Billboard dance hit and sell 1mil copies ww tho.

 

Anyway, I think Rina Sawayama, Joji, Rich Brian and Mitski are doing pretty good.

This.

I like the original version better. It co-operates traditional instruments into a pop tune.

It's because Asian artists are literally just copying Western trends instead of incorporating elements of their own culture into their music. Most European acts that became popular in the States or WW had something new to offer.

the ignorance in this blanket statement...
