In 1998 she had a son. On March 17, 1999 she found out her mother was murdered the same day as the release of “Respect the power of Love”. She cancelled the promotional aspects for a time to fly back to Okinawa to identify her mother’s body. Throughout her career she has maintained a strong influence and oresence in Japan despite the social stigmas she is associated with. She is a single, divorced, working mother, which in Japan can be very bad for public image. However, her fans and those who listen to her music are actually very understanding because her music is diverse, and she has evolved as an artist.
 
At the beginning of her career her music was mainly dance music. She focused on this because of her early producers and the fact that the music is very catchy, sold quickly, and is what people wanted. However, her evolution as an artist has come to involve using R&B and hip-hop more in her work. This has allowed her to stay relevant and in many ways help change the face of Japanese music. She sold well over 30 million albums in her career and continues to do well despite a time when her music declined in both sales and popularity.
