After 2 years of releasing singles, JASMINE has finally released her debut album filled with hits like sad to say, L.I.P.S,Jealous,This is Not A Game,No More, and Dreamin’. What attracted me to her music was that it had a R&B feel with emotion; that and the fact that she always had on these colorful wigs and different concepts for every single.
No More Cry!! Ahw… no.. no.. dont mind me.. anyways here’s JASMINE!
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.
