    The countdown was started on her official blog when Miss Kay released her last album in 2008. But it stopped this morning and it now says "Congratulations" ! The singer thanks her fans and her staff in a special entry, and promises to work hard in order to keep enjoying her success..

    Crystal Kay
    10 years ago, the young singer made her debut with a song called Eternal Memories. Then, she gradually became a major artist on the Japanese Urban-Pop scene thanks to numerous hits, among which her collaborations with Chemistry and m-flo. Her best performance in the Oricon charts was made in 2005 with single Koi no Ochitara, with about 290 000 copies sold.

    She has interpreted several songs for movies and dramas, like Kitto Eien Ni (Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo suru), Konna ni Chikaku de... (Nodame Cantabile) or, more recently, One (Pokemon 11). And more theme songs are coming : her next single,Girlfriend, featuring her great friend BoA, will be the soundtrack of movie He's Just Not That Into You, expected in Japan on August 1. An extract of the song is available on Crystal Kay's official website (and full song on YouTube)

    Crystal Kay will take part in the next J-Wave Live 2000+9, which takes place August 14-16 at the Yoyogi National Stadium in Tôkyô, as well as eighteen leading Japanese artists (Koda Kumi, Ken Hirai, Remioromen, Kaela Kimura and many more - complete list on the festival's official website)
