Touted as the Japanese Madonna, Hikaru Utada was born in New York City to a singer mother and producer father. With music in her blood, she released a Japanese-language debut, First Love,
which went platinum overseas. However, it was Exodus
, 2004's English-language album that earned her acclaim around the globe. Utada's hit singles have too evolved from Exodus
's "You Make Me Want To Be A Man" to her catchy new J-pop song "Flavor of Life." With kohl-lined eyes and a sharply-shaped do, this star's look and sound are equally show stopping.
