This Is The One is the second Island Records English studio album by Japanese American pop singer-songwriter Utada, released by Island in 2009. The album was originally set to be released in Japan on March 4 but was pushed back to March 14. In the United States, the album was digitally released on March 24 and was released physically on May 12. However, This Is The One was only released in North America, Japan and some parts of Asia, and has yet to be released in Europe, Oceania and Latin America unlike her previous album Exodus. In Japan, This Is the One topped the Oricon's International Album chart and peaked at number three on the Weekly chart. In the United States, the album peaked at number 69 on the Billboard 200 chart. This Is The One was the supporting album of Utada's 2010 tour Utada: In The Flesh 2010. On December 21, 2009, the Dirty Desire remixes were released.
This Is The One marked Utada's last album with Island Records, and the Universal Music Group as a whole, not only due to the end of her contract, but also due to her 2010 global recording contract with EMI Music. All albums, regardless of language, will be released under "Hikaru Utada", thus also retiring her Western stage name, Utada.
