Speaking of Aoyama Thelma...

Born on October 27, 1987 in Nara, Japan, the soon-to-be 22-year-old R&B/pop singer hit it big on the Japanese pop charts in 2008 by being featured on Japanese rapper SoulJa's single, Koko ni Iru yo / SoulJa feat. Aoyama Thelma.

Aoyama surpassed it with an even bigger hit in 2008, her answer song featuring SoulJa in 2008, Soba ni Iru ne / Aoyama Thelma feat. SoulJa.

Below are a couple of music videos which feature Aoyama Thelma singing in English and English & Japanese, respectively, the first one is a cover by Japanese DJ MAKIDAI of the 1993 Mariah Carey tune "Dreamlover," the second one is a house track by Japanese DJ MAKAI, "Garden of Love."

A Trio of Songs by Female R&B/Hip-Hop Artists in Japan

Born November 2, 1981 in Los Angeles, California, USA but having spent much if not most of her life in Japan, Ai Carina Uemura (愛カリーナ植村) aka AI is a Japanese American singer/songwriter. Three quarters Japanese and one quarter Italian, AI is often known as the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul in Japan," though she has branched out from that musical genre since her 2004 Japanese hit single, "After the rain."

A superb singer and dancer, AI once sang in a choir at a concert by Mary J. Blige, the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul," when she was only 17 and has danced in a Janet Jackson music video, "Go Deep" (1998).

For more information on AI, check out her unofficial Facebook page (it's in English) and google her full real name, Ai Carina Uemura.

After the rain / AI



Prominent female DJs are a rarity anywhere, but Japan has produced a number of them, such as DJ MAYUMI, DJ SILVA, and DJ KAORI. DJ KAORI honed her skills in New York City, deejaying private parties for Diddy, basketball superstar Michael Jordan, heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, and other celebrities.

Google DJ MAYUMI, DJ SILVA, and DJ KAORI for more information.

DJ MAYUMI produced a 2007 music video, "DIAMONDS," with herself at the helm, and featuring the vocal talents of JAMOSA, LUNA, [DJ] SILVA and ia.

I could find official, bilingual (Japanese and English) MySpace pages for DJ MAYUMI, JAMOSA, LUNA and DJ SILVA, but none for ia.

They are all full Japanese as far as I know except JAMOSA, who is half Japanese and half aboriginal Taiwanese - hence the name, JAMOSA ("JAMOSA" = "JA[PAN]" + "[FOR]MOSA" {derived from Portuguese, Formosa is the old name for Taiwan}).

In her English language song "REMINISCING," which can be heard on her MySpace page, JAMOSA explores and remembers her Austronesian Taiwanese and Japanese roots.

DIAMONDS / DJ MAYUMI featuring JAMOSA, LUNA, SILVA & ia



Lastly, there is a little known Japanese R&B/club/J-pop singer named Lisa Yamaguchi ( 山口リサ, Yamaguchi Risa).

But check out who Lisa Yamaguchi's MySpace Friends are: Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Keyshia Cole, Kylie Minogue and Amerie (who is a US counterpart to Japan's Crystal Kay: both are half Korean and half African American), to name just a few.

Quite an impressive list of celebrity friends for a relatively obscure musical artist...

Watch Lisa Yamaguchi's music video, "Secret Drive."

"Here (In Your Arms)" - HelloGoodbye

I absolutely adored this song once upon a time, but ended up forgetting all about it until recently. Lots of nostalgia behind this song for moi.~
