I recommend M-flow (I think they're from Korea?) and Homemade Kazoku.. Homemade Kazoku has nice rap songs~~ >w< I really liked their song for the Bleach 2nd ending. but I listen to female artists alot more than male artists.. i recommand sakamoto maaya~~ >w<

Try BoA, Mika Nakashima, Hitomi... u wont regret!!

I bought their albums without knowing who they are, but i fell into their songs in the end. If i like pop-jazz then Mika shud be considered. Hitomi is soft pop rock. About BoA i think most of the ppl knows like.

Personally i dislike boy groups, they looked a lil bit gay. Sorry...

I study at the same junior college as Lin Jun Jie so technically, he's my senior. Tongue I'm rather familiar with the Cpop scene and yeah, I do listen to Lin Jun Jie and Jay Chou. Currently listening to Jay Chou's latest album, November's Chopin.

Is m-flo the artiste which has albums by the name of "m-flo loves BoA, loves blahblah"? Downloaded one of his songs. Sorta like rap?

I would like to listen to other forms of Jpop besides my idol Ai Otsuka. Preferably R&B, nice ballads, not too rock, male artistes.

Maybe you girls should read his first posting a little more carefully? Tongue

I recently know a singer called K through the drama "1 Litre of Tears". His latest single, "Only Human", is used as the ending theme for that drama. If you wanna try out his music, here's a YSI link for "Only Human".

Yes! Yes! I think that the original poster would like K. Why? He reminds me of Hirai Ken but his vocal range is not as high, and that was a nuisance in the first post. The ending theme song is so beautiful. Crying He's another one of the Korean crossover acts, and I think he's the only one I can really say I like, even from this one song. Not to mention his Japanese is pretty good! Nod I want to get the single when it comes out and am looking forward to the debut album as well. Nod

K is such a crooner! Excellent vocals! eyn, thanks alot for the downloads. Anymore to come? Smile Yeah, I apologise for the slight confusion cos' I didn't really make it clear that I want male artistes in my topic starter haha. So many names... I shall slowly discover their songs one by one. Tongue

OOOH I know a really nice R&B male song XD But it's Cpop if you don't mind.
It's by Will Pan called bu de bu ai (cover of a korean song). It's on my mp3 player so I don't have it on the computer Sad sorry but you should go request it in T-N's chinese music section.
