Ayaka was choosen as Featured Artist because I absolutely love her ballad songs. Recently, she has been releasing more rock songs, which I don't really enjoy. I think she's definitely better singing ballads.
Here's a list of my favourite ayaka singles with their release date:
- [2006.02.01] I believe
- [2006.07.19] Real voice
- [2006.09.27] Mikazuki
- [2007.07.04] Jewelry day
