It’s been 10 years since the first time BoA debuted in Japan when she was just 13 years old. She was very passionate to take over Japan music industry which is second largest music industry in the world after The United States. She started up pretty good and climbed to the top in no time. 6 consecutive no.1 albums, millions of records were sold, numerous tours were held, no doubt she’s the record setter for foreigner musicians. But, staying on top was harder than reaching it. Her 7th album was surprisingly didn’t make it to the top spot, it was placed at number 4. It’s been said that it was the cost of lack of promotions.
BoA had been a chameleon singer, she did spicy dance tunes, edgy rock songs, heart slicing ballads and many more. BoA was crowned as a “Queen of Winter Ballad”, as her ballads never failed to pamper your ears and tragically slice your heart and melt it into the song. From her best known メリクリ to her popularity revival, まもりたい ～White Wishes～, none had failed.
It’s been 10 years… The evolution had taken place, the history was made and a milestone was reached. Congratulation BoA, and thank you for being such an inspirational performer that showed a truly professionalism in each and everything you have done.
