PORTRAIT. In 10 years, Aya Nakamura has established herself as the most listened to French artist in the world

We could have expected a media tour, numerous messages on social networks… But while Aya Nakamura finds herself, in this spring of 2024, at the heart of a national controversy over her possible presence at the ceremony opening of the Olympic Games, the artist chooses to continue his journey.

She just thanked her fans and spoke out against the racist attacks she received in a few messages posted on social networks: “I am becoming a number 1 state subject in debates etc. [etc] But what do I really owe you? Kedal ». And finally, on March 29, it is in music that she responds, with a new title Doggy . “I don’t have any enemies, it’s them who don’t like me […] No need to validate myself, I’m on the front page of magazines”, she sings, like a snub to those who criticize her.

The episode perfectly illustrates the way Aya Nakamura leads her career. By moving forward and focusing on the music. A strategy implemented for almost ten years.

Beginnings on social networks

Legend has it that it was in 2014 that Aya Nakamura published her first title on Facebook, Karma. If the post is now impossible to find (and the caption is difficult to verify), the now 29-year-old artist has since reached a special status. In 2024, Aya Nakamura, who no one really saw coming, is the most listened to French woman in the world. Djadja, Pookie, Behavior… His greatest hits made the whole of France dance, and even far beyond.

“Aya Nakamura is the most listened to active French artist of all time on Spotify France. Internationally, it is widely listened to in Germany, the Netherlands, the United States, Mexico, Cambodia…”, lists Loïc Demaille, editor at Spotify France. The artist also records a colossal number of views on YouTube, where she became known.
