5TO BE — Rushed out less than a month after her breakthrough single, ‘LOVE~Destiny~’, in an effort to to capitalize on her burgeoning success at the time. However, this single failed to make the same impact of its predecessor. The song proved to stand the test of time and was re-recorded and re-released several times throughout the years.46.2
4Boys & Girls  It became clear that Ayu was here to stay when ‘Boys & Girls’ became her first million-seller in 1999. Despite it’s success, it was unable to debut atop the Oricon charts due to Ami Suzuki‘s ‘Be Together‘ blocking it from the #1 spot.67.9
3Voyage  Released to coincide with her straight-to-VCD movie ‘Sinking into the Moon‘, ‘Voyage’ is particularly loved by fans and managed to spend an impressive 28-week run on the Oricon charts.71.5
2M — Ayu’s first self-composed song (under the pen name CREA) released in December 2000, ‘M’ quickly became a fan-favorite and went on to sell over 1.2 million copies over the following year.93.2
1SEASONS — Third in the ‘vogue/Far away/SEASONS’ trilogy, ‘SEASONS’ was an instant classic and remains her second best-selling single to date. Fans cite the song’s heartfelt and resonating lyrics as some of her best.100
