It has been played 3.8 million times so far. Has over 125,000 followers. Her powerful and relaxed singing voice caught the attention of music producer Yoko Kanno, who decided to use her in Honda’s global commercial.

The work I worked on as Feat. Maya has been released and I am filled with gratitude. In this world where it is difficult to be free, I sang Blue in the hope that as many people as possible can be free. Recording with Mr. Kanno was full of surprises and learning. Now that I’ve just started my journey as an artist, the time I spent with Mr. Kanno, whom I respect, is a treasure.
