Acest termen este o abreviere de la Japanese Pop si se refera la artistii japonezi care canta muzica pop; acest termen a fost inventat pentru a ajuta la diferentierea cantaretilor japonezi de ceilalti cantareti din toata lumea care abordeaza acelasi gen de muzica.
Acest gen de muzica isi are radacinile in jazz-ul care a ajuns in Japonia la inceputul perioadei Showa; acest gen de muzica a ajutat la introducerea multor instrumente muzicale noi si aceasta muzica a fost ascultata foarte mult in baruri si cafenele. Anul 1952 a fost declarat “Anul Exploziei Jazz-ului”. A fost interzisa la un moment dat, si anume in timpul celui de al doilea razboi mondial; dupa acest razboi, foarte multi americani au ramas in Japonia si i-au invatat pe japonezi foarte multe alte genuri de muzica (printre care mambo, blues, boogie-woogie etc). Un alt gen de muzica importat a fost rock-and-roll-ul care a atins culmea popularitatii in anul 1959. Primul artist care a reusit sa combine muzica pop traditionala japoneza cu rock-and-roll-ul a fost Kyu Sakamoto cu melodia Ue wo Muite ArukouSukiyaki Song; aceasta melodie a avut un succes enorm la public, ajungand sa fie vanduta in miliarde de copii in toata lumea. cunoscuta si sub numele de
De la inceputul anilor 1970 si pana in mijlocul anilor 1980 a avut loc fenomenul numit New Music in care s-a facut trecerea de la cantecele simple acompaniate de un singur instrument la cele mai complexe unde acompaniamentul instrumental era asigurat de catre mai multe feluri de instrumente, iar mesajul cantecelor s-a schimbat din mesajul cu tenta sociala in mesajul care vorbea despre dragoste. In anii 1980 a aparut un nou curent muzical numit City Pop care avea ca si tema centrala orasele mari. Deoarece era foarte greu sa se faca distinctia intre New Music si City Pop, a aparut termenul Wasei Pop care a cuprins ambele genuri fara a se mai produce confuzii. In anii 1990 a aparut denumirea de J-Pop care a facut si inca mai face referire la toata muzica pop produsa in Japonia. Catre finalul anilor 1990 un alt gen de muzica a devenit popular in Japonia, si anume R&B, gen pe care l-au abordat destul de multi japonezi pasionati de muzica si pe care l-au promovat pentru a vedea cum prinde la public; si rezultatele au fost cele asteptate, foarte multi tineri fiind incantati de acest gen nou de muzica.
Muzica J-Pop este foarte populara acum in toate domeniile si face parte deja din cultura populara japoneza. Acest gen de muzica este de gasit peste tot: in anime, magazine, filme, reclame, spectacole la radio si la televizor si multe alte forme de J-Ent (Japanese Entertainment). Ca si impact asupra intregii lumi, se pare ca in ultimii ani muzica J-Pop a adunat din ce in ce mai multi fani si adepti ai stilului in toata lumea (faima muzicii japoneze a aparut atunci cand industria muzicii din Japonia a fost destul de mare incat sa influenteze cultura pop si tinerii); acest lucru a fost posibil datorita a doua mari atu-uri ale Japoniei care au avut un succes extraordinar: anime si jocuri video. Un fenomen extrem de interesant este cel inregistrat in ultimii ani de catre companiile japoneze producatoare de jocuri video; foarte multi fani ai jocurilor comanda de multe ori jocurile direct de la producatori fara sa mai astepte sa apara si in propria tara.
O problema in ceea ce priveste muzica J-Pop este considerata a fi similaritatea pe care o poate avea cu cantece din alte culturi, cantece pe care oricine le-ar recunoste deoarece sunt destul de faimoase. Explicatia acestui fenomen este faptul ca japonezii se inspira foarte mult din celelalte culturi si importa tot ce se poate. Lucrul extraordinar pe care sunt in stare sa il faca apoi cu ceea ce au imprumutat este sa prelucreze acel lucru (in cazul de fata, o melodie) si sa schimbe cateva elemente precum unele instrumente, vocile, aranjamentul muzical si, bineinteles, versurile. Toate aceste schimbari ajuta ca melodia respectiva, desi provine dintr-o alta cultura, sa fie dominata de farmecul si aroma japoneza. Prin procesul de adaptare la cultura japoneza, orice melodie sufera asemenea schimbari incat pare originara din Japonia si totusi nu; exista o singura explicatie aici: japonezii reusesc sa imprime unicitate “produsului”.

O sa va prezint cativa dintre artistii jpop mai buni , la ora actuala
Arashi (嵐?, literally Storm) is a Japanese boy band formed under the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates, which announced the formation of the group on September 15, 1999 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The group was initially signed to Pony Canyon and released one studio album, one greatest hits album and six singles, beginning with their 1999 eponymous debut single, before moving to the Johnny's subsidiary label J Storm in 2001, which was initially set up for their succeeding releases. While their debut single debuted atop the Oricon weekly chart selling a little over half a million copies, the group subsequently faced slowly declining sales.
With the release of their eighteenth single "Love So Sweet", Arashi began gaining commercial success as "Love So Sweet" was used as the opening theme song for the high-rating drama Hana Yori Dango 2, making it one of the top five best-selling singles of 2007 in Japan and the group's first single to exceed 400,000 copies sold overall in nearly seven years. For the next two years, Arashi gained a number of achievements and records as they became the first artist to place the top two rankings on the Oricon singles yearly chart for two consecutive years with their singles "Truth/Kaze no Mukō e" and "One Love" in 2008 and "Believe/Kumorinochi, Kaisei" and "Ashita no Kioku/Crazy Moon (Kimi wa Muteki)" in 2009, simultaneously topped the 2009 Oricon singles, album and music DVD yearly charts, and became the third artist in Oricon history to monopolize the top three best-selling singles of the year.

NEWS (ニュース Nyūsu?), is a six-member Japanese musical group consisting of Keiichiro Koyama, Ryo Nishikido, Tomohisa Yamashita, Takahisa Masuda, Shigeaki Kato and Yuya Tegoshi. The group's name is an acronym based on the cardinal directions (North, East, West, South) and the members locations. Formed in 2003 by Johnny Kitagawa as a nine member group under the label Johnny's Entertainment, NEWS released a promotional single "NEWS Nippon" (NEWS ニッポン NEWS Japan?), which was used for the World Cup of Volleyball Championships. In 2004, Takahiro Moriuchi (森内寛貴 Moriuchi Takahiro?) left the group and the remaining eight members released their debut single, "Kibō: Yell" (希望 ~Yell~ Hope ~Yell~?), which debuted atop the Oricon charts.
In 2006, the group released their fifth consecutive number-one single, "Sayaendō/Hadashi no Cinderella Boy" (サヤエンドウ/裸足のシンデレラボーイ Peas/Barefoot Cinderella Boy?), as the current six-member group due to the controversy surrounding then-members Hiroki Uchi and Hironori Kusano. After a brief hiatus, they released their seventh number-one single, "Hoshi o Mezashite" (星をめざして lit. Aim for the Stars?). In 2008, they released their tenth single, "Happy Birthday," which made NEWS the second Japanese group after label-mates KinKi Kids to have ten consecutive number-one singles since their debut.
KAT-TUN (カトゥーン Katūn?) is a Japanese boy band formed by Johnny & Associates (Johnny's) in 2001. The group's name is an acronym based on the first letter of each member's family name (Kazuya Kamenashi, Jin Akanishi, Junnosuke Taguchi, Koki Tanaka, Tatsuya Ueda, Yuichi Nakamaru). Their debut on March 22, 2006 was marked by a tripartite release of a CD single, album and music DVD on their exclusive record label J-One Records. Since then, all of their single, album and music DVD releases have debuted at number one on the Oricon music and DVD charts.
Kanjani Eight (関ジャニ∞ Kanjani Eito?, Kanjani∞) is a seven member Japanese music and entertainment group hailing from Japan's Kansai region. They are managed by the multimedia talent agency, Johnny & Associates, and signed to Imperial Records. The group was formed in 2002 and made their CD debut in 2004 as "Johnny's modern enka group", though after the year 2006, their sound and style has become a generic mix of pop and rock.
Like the rest of the acts managed under Johnny's & Associates, Kanjani Eight also perform in various other areas of the Japanese entertainment industry such as variety show hosting, television, movie, and stage acting, and radio talk show hosting.
The key point to the group's appeal is their stereotypical approach as men from Kansai. Loud, blunt, fast talking, and funny is the market appeal that the band is portrayed in the media. Majority of their songs carry a carefree, goofy sound with upbeat cheerful lyrics and catchy tunes, though the group is also known to have a serious side that shows when they write their own material.
Olivia Lufkin (born December 9, 1979), professionally known as OLIVIA, is a bilingual singer-songwriter. She is the daughter of an American father and an Okinawan mother. Her two younger siblings are Jeffrey Lufkin, who is a musician she collaborates regularly with and Caroline Lufkin, who is an independent musician. Lufkin began her solo career after being in the Japanese girl group D&D. She gained mainstream success in 2006 after creating songs for the fictional band Trapnest under the alias of Olivia Inspi' Reira (Trapnest), and the songs were used for the popular anime adaptation of Nana.
Mika Nakashima (中島 美嘉 Nakashima Mika?, born February 19, 1983 in Hioki, Kagoshima Prefecture) is a Japanese singer, model, and actress.

The album debuted atop the Oricon charts and stayed there for four weeks, establishing her popularity in Japan.[fn 1] Because of her constantly changing image and tight control over her artistry, Hamasaki's popularity extends across Asia; music and fashion trends she has started have spread to countries such as China, Singapore, and Taiwan.
