What is Ado? you may ask. I have never met, but am trying to describe. Ado is the Japanese female singer born in 2002. Oh young! She made her major debut with "Ussee-wa" in 2020 October when she was 18 years old. Naturally, people hardly knew anything about her. And it became so popular in the early half of 2021. That also made Ado well-known. "Ussee-wa" this word means "You're So Noisy!" in English. The lyrics look full of uncomfortable feelings about all preceding generations. She sings it with a lot of coarseness. Yes, we can say it is just like hip hop. Rap music means the one for the downtrodden, like pop music means the one for the middle class. Then rap music mostly have the indecent lyrics against the establishment. Ado maybe suggested the brand-new style of Japanese rap music unintentionally.

Ado's belonged to Universal Music. And they have published no single CDs of Ado. Then they finally released her first CD (studio album) in 2022 January. It was the Kyogen containing all her songs after her major debut. Oricon reported it sold about 140,000 copies during the first week, ranked at the 1st of Oricon Weekly Chart.
