Airi Suzuki (鈴木 愛理), born April 12, 1994 in Gifu Japan is a Japanese pop singer born to Toru and Kyoko Suzuki who are professional golfers. She signed to Hello! Project in 2002 and was a member of as well as being a member of the Hello!Project Kids/Eggs in 2002 through the audition (performing BoA's "Kimochi wa Tsutawaru") and was later put into the girl group °C-ute in 2005. As well as being in both °C-ute and Hello!Project Kids/Eggs, in 2007, she was a member of the Hello! Project trio Buono! which originally sang the theme songs for the anime Shugo Chara! (the group went on to sing well after the anime ended).
Over the years, Airi has also been placed in other groups such as Aa! (along with Natsuyaki Miyabi and Tanaka Reina [Reina was replaced with Murakami Megumi]) as well as Dia Lady (with Sugaya Risako).
In 2017, Hello!Project Eggs renamed themselves to Hello!Project Kids and °C-ute, Berryz Kobo, and Buono! disbanded after 10 years. As for the reasoning of °C-ute's disbandment, the members felt that it was time to move on to other things. With this, the group had their graduation on June 12, 2017 in Saitama. Originally, Airi planned on becoming a newscaster and a model but decided to continue as a soloist.
In March of 2018, Airi and her company (Up Front Create) slowly started releasing teaser images and short audio teasers of her solo debut album, titled 「Do Me a Favor」, which would be released in June 6, 2018. The album would feature 15 tracks and will have two collaboration songs - one with the female band SCANDAL (whom they had previously collaborated at a concert) and the other with the artist Spicy Chocolate. Some of the tracks are written by Airi herself.
