Ado – From Past to Future
Ado, an utaite (a Japanese term for someone covering Vocaloid songs with their real voice) born on October 24, 2002, started her musical journey in 2017 by sharing cover videos of Vocaloid songs. Over time, she expanded her repertoire by creating and performing original songs.
Following her remarkable major-label debut in 2020 with the explosive hit “Usseewa,” Ado has continued to dominate the Japanese charts with one hit after another. In 2021, she became the third Japanese artist to join YouTube’s global artist campaign “Artist On The Rise.” In August 2022, she lent her voice to the character Uta in the anime film ONE PIECE FILM RED. The film’s theme song “New Genesis” (“Shin Jidai”) climbed to the top spot on the Apple Music Global Top 100 Chart, making her the first Japanese artist to achieve this milestone and proving her an undeniable presence on the global charts. This success led to her partnership with Geffen Records, a prestigious American music label under the Universal Music umbrella, to further facilitate her expansion onto the global stage.
