yeah I get it... but, although her label (which is UNIVERSAL SIGMA, the same where Onitsuka Chihiro is right now) is not the BIG Universal label -just like cutting edge and Avex in OLIVIA's case- they need their artists to sell well to keep making music for them... I hope Chisako will return to music soon though! she's an amazing artist ♥
it's creage, which i think is a sublabel of universal music. just like even though avex is a major label, they have sublabels which are more indie. you're a fan of olivia. remember her indie works (internal bleeding strawberry~return of the chlorophyll bunny)? well that was a sublabel of avex. i mean, cruyff in the bedroom is on the same label as mikami is. and cruyff is VERY MUCH indie.
but she's not even on a major label. it's not like any of the other artists on the label sell all that much either...
i was thinking she was busy breast feeding her kid. i mean, she had absolutely zero activity last year.
At least she's still active in music... I think she's not releasing anything new because of her label... her solo stuff as sold really bad (all of her solo singles and albums had debuted out of the Top 100 of Oricon, I think...)
