  • Sweet 19 Blues (stylized as SWEET 19 BLUES) is the first original studio album by Japanese recording artist Namie Amuro, released July 22, 1996 by Avex Trax. All of its songs were written, arranged, composed, and produced at least in part by songwriter Tetsuya Komuro, with whom Amuro had never worked prior to Sweet 19 Blues. Having been heavily successful with the group idol group Super Monkey's, Amuro released a two-million selling album before signing with Avex Trax. Nine days after Amuro's previous album, Dance Tracks Vol.1, "Body Feels Exit" was released as the lead single from Sweet 19 Blues on October 25, 1995. It debuted and peaked at number three on the weekly Oricon Singles Chart and was certified Platinum. Second single "Chase the Chance" had even more success: it became her first single to debut at number one in Japan, and her first million-selling single. Third and fourth singles "You're My Sunshine" and "Don't Wanna Cry" were also number-one million sellers, with the final single, the title track, reaching number two and receiving a platinum certification. Critics were positive in their reviews of Sweet 19 Blues, appreciating its "relative sophistication" and "brilliant" production. The album itself proved extremely successful. Sweet 19 Blues debuted at number one on the Oricon Albums Chart, with first-week sales of 1,921,850 copies, and charted for forty-two weeks. In its original chart run, Sweet 19 Blues sold nearly 3.4 million copies, and became the second-best-selling album of 1996, behind Globe's self-titled debut album; for a brief period, it was the best-selling Japanese album of all time. Until 1999 with the release of Hikaru Utada's debut album First Love, it was the best-selling album by a female artist in Japan, and remains the sixth best-selling album by a female artist and the thirteenth best-selling album in Japan. The success of the album helped Amuro accomplish feats never realized by a solo female artist, and made her one of the most popular and successful Japanese artists of all time. Sweet 19 Blues is credited with changing the landscape of Japanese pop music, influencing everything from music style to performance, and even fashion. Some of the effects of the phenomenon caused by the album are noted to still be felt within today's Japanese music industry. Combined with the sales of its singles, Sweet 19 Blues sold over 8.5 million copies. (en)
