Le Couple were a Japanese pop rock/folk duo that formed in 1990. Consisting of husband and wife Emi Fujita and Ryuji Fujita, the duo released a few singles and albums from 1994 through 1996, but failed to garner mainstream attention. Finally, in 1997, Le Couple became an overnight success, with their 1997 single "Hidamari no Uta" reaching number 2 on the Oricon charts. Selling over a million copies, "Hidamari no Uta" eventually became the third best selling single of the year in Japan. Fueled by the huge surprise success of the single, Le Couple's second mini-album, "Another Season -5 Banme no Kisetsu-", reached number 6, and stayed in the Oricon charts for an impressive total of 16 weeks. Unfortunately, Le Couple's newly found success quickly disintegrated, and by 2000, the duo were back to releasing uncharting singles and albums. Disappearing from the public eye in 2002, Le Couple eventually disbanded by 2007, and both Emi and Ryuji Fujita divorced that year as well. « hide
