Woah, it never crossed my mind Namie Amuro retiring. She was one of the first artists that really got me into Jpop (back in the Inuyasha days) I figured she'd be one those artists that would continue making music well into her golden years. 25 years is a long time, and as much as it saddens me to hear this, she definitely does deserve the break and to just chill and be with loved ones.
Let's make the rest of this year and 2018 a memorable one. <3
