True is Mika Nakashima's first Japanese album. In contrast to the typical Japanese J-Pop and Western Pop artist, this album was one in which Mika established a sound that would become her trademark for future albums: a mature, 'Adult Contemporary'-influenced mixture of smooth jazz and soft pop.
True topped the Oricon Album Chart for three straight weeks, selling 1 million copies within that time span, and has since sold over 1,173,534 copies. It won Nakashima the Album of the Year Award at the 2003 Japan Gold Disc Awards.
