Utada, Heart Station, and more digital downloads than the population of Sweden

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Superstar Utada's 28th single Heart Station/Stay Gold, officially drops today on the heels of her still red-hot '07 where her music sold 12 million digital units.

Shoji Doyama - president of EMI Music Japan - talks about how Utada is helping to pave the way for how music keeps getting distributed:

The success of Utada Hikaru shows that our strategy of providing access to music across multiple formats and platforms has been embraced by the consumer. We will continue to offer more opportunities for more people to enjoy more music and will keep breaking world class records.
Asian superstars who continue to blaze new paths on the music scene - definitely cool.
