In the top 5 best selling artist of 2008 are EXILE (#1), Ayumi Hamasaki (#2), B'z (#3) and kobukuro (#5). Interesting to note that B'z, Namie and kobukuro actually has higher total sales than Ayumi but they earned slightly lesser, hence making them ranked behind her.

Namie has finished recording songs for a new double A-side single coming soon. It is also mentioned that the song will be 'beautiful & cool', and the single will have huge tie-in. More information will be reveal in up coming time!

Sources are gathered only from Namie Style BBS and tieba.baidu.com, so mostly likely the info is true but we still need to wait for more official sources to confirm this before everyone gets too excited! ^_^"

Singer Namie Amuro, 31, put in a two-and-a-half hour non-stop performance at Yokohama Arena on Sunday night, exciting 10,000 fans with a vast array of dance moves and nine different costumes.

Amuro’s nationwide “BEST FICTION” tour began at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on Oct 25 and will finish at the Morioka Ice Arena in Iwate on May 31. The 60- show tour is expected to draw 450,000 fans and set a new attendance record for a Japanese female solo artist. Her fourth best-of album - “BEST FICTION” - has sold close to 2 million copies.

On Sunday night, Amuro sang songs from that as well as her new single “Wild/Dr.” The single is currently being used by Coca-Cola in its “Wild Health” commercials, and will go on sale March 18.

Amuro will perform in her hometown of Naha for the first time since December 2007, when she heads down to Okinawa for shows on March 21 and 22.
