diggin' the pink hair

JASMINE, a japanese R&B/soul singer. She’s often referred to as the next Utada Hikaru, but not much else is known about her. Her single “Sad to Say” has already topped the digital download charts. It’s being reported as the first time an artist has reached No.1 on the charts before making their official debut, which Jasmine did a week later on June 24, 2009. She also wrote her own songs from the start and did all her pre-debut promotions only on the radio.

Jasmine says she considers Utada Hikaru a big influence but was first inspired to become a singer at the age of 13 after seeing a gospel choir perform at the US military base in Yokota. She dropped out of high school in the tenth grade and passed an audition with Sony Music a year later. She has since performed in clubs and appears every Thursday on the J-Wave radio station.

Jasmine will be releasing her 2nd single entitled “No More” on the 28th of October.. uh… today? yesterday? or tomorrow for some people here haha anyways.. here’s JASMINE with the song Sad to Say..

and her latest release.. No More

    Maybe its just me but I dont see the connection with Utada Hikaru. Her voice is a bit less powerful, but she’s much more connected to the songs, showing more emotion.
    Utada was like that too, but later she turned into a hit or miss IMO. Hope the same things doesnt happen to her.
