Jade Goto (born 16 September 1981), better known by his stage name Jay'ed (stylised as JAY'ED) is a Japanese R&B singer-songwriter. He debuted under Toy's Factory in 2007, and is most known for his single with Juju, "Ashita ga Kuru Nara" which sold over 140,000 copies.
Jay'ed was born in 1981 in New Zealand to a Japanese father and Polynesian mother of Samoan and Māori descent. He lived in New Zealand until he was 10, then moved to Minoh, Osaka. After deciding to become a singer, Jay'ed performed in the local Osaka club circuit. His first break into music was in 2002, when he appeared as a featured artist on a Sphere of Influence album track.
He debuted as an indie artist in 2005, with his first single "Why?". This was followed by a mini-album, Gift: Just Let Me Know, which sold over 20,000 copies. In 2008, he debuted as a major label artist on Toy's Factory with the single "Superwoman".
Jay'ed found his most success in 2009, after a duet singer Juju on the song "Ashita ga Kuru Nara," which was used as the theme song for the movie April Bride. It was a hit, reaching No. 2 on Oricon charts.
Jay'ed collaborated with Infinity 16 and Waka-danna from Shōnan no Kaze on the song "Tsutaetai Koto ga Konna Aru Noni" (伝えたい事がこんなあるのに, I Have Stuff to Tell You, But). It was not successful in physical sales or airplay, but reached No. 1 on the RIAJ digital tracks chart for three weeks. This made Jay'ed the artist with the most weeks at No. 1 (6, including Ashita ga Kuru Nara's weeks); however in mid-2010 this record was beaten by Kana Nishino. Jay'ed's 6th single, "Everybody," was picked as the KDDI au CM song, a promotion giving Jay'ed his first top 20 solo single.
