_______________________________________________

Yeah, I just decided to create a thread for the singer songwriter aiko. She is well known in Japan for her numerous cheerful love songs, which are generally upbeat. As proof of her popularity, she won Oricon's subscriber survey as favorite singer in both 2005 and 2006.
She is going to release her new album on March 31st. The title is still unknown.

all you know how much i love her .

I just saw her live from Music Station where she sang Modore nai ashita , as usual she use a powerful voice perfectly .
In the Music Station 1000 artist and on letter A she's ranking at the 4th position . so good Love
Like on last year when that was her first #1 with Milk/Nageki no kiss , now she's #1 with Modorenai ashita so it's the second #1 of her career and she cried on music station like on 2009 ... and for the little history on 2009 she cried and Ai-chin try to arrange the make up of aiko with her fingers both of them were laughing that was funny.
She'll start her Love like pop Vol 13 soon Love already 13 years ! Beautiful career !

^ Thanks for the covers! Though I think she's had better covers. Even the most recent single. They're not horrible though ...

Can't wait for the album and a full track list

I like these cover but it reminds me pictures we can usually see on Baby Peenats issues ...
( baby peenats is her fanclub and all 6 months if i remember well the fanclub send an issue with pictures, and other things write by aiko to fans ^^)


Think we'll have the full tracklist soon
now we know just :

KissHug
Modorenai Ashita
Ano Ko no Yume
Milk
Nageki no kisu

(i guess maybe all this songs will not be include in the album but they are singles and song she sang on TV so i think they'll be )

I really really like the covers Love. Don't get it wrong, but I think all her older covers look the same, there's hardly any variety. But I'm excited for the album anyway.
