Raised in a family actively involved in the field of music, Utada Hikaru made-up her mind about becoming a musician at a very young age. She launched her proper professional singing career in the mid-’90s but faced huge disappointment straightaway as both her debut single and album failed to gain any major success. Soon after that, Utada moved to Japan and that’s where she found the big-break of her musical career. Her debut Japanese-language album “First Love” proved to be an instant hit and went on to become one of the country’s best-selling albums of all-time. Over the next decade, Hikaru just continued to gain further success with each musical release and by the end of the 2000s, she established herself as one of the biggest stars in the Japanese music landscape. As of now, she has gone on to sell over 50 million records worldwide which makes her one of Japan’s best-selling artists of all-time. Lastly, moving towards the personal life of the singer, Utada Hikaru was first married to photographer Kazuaki Kiriya from 2002 to 2007 while her second marriage to Francesco Calianno lasted from 2014 to 2018.
