Fukuhara's debut album Rainbow (2008) was a commercial success, becoming certified gold by the RIAJ and spawning the top 30 singles "Change", "Himawari", "Yasashii Aka" and "Love (Winter Song)". After releasing her second album Music Is My Life in 2010, Fukuhara released the concept extended plays Regrets of Love and The Soul Extreme EP. The leading track of The Soul Extreme EP, "O2" featuring singer Ai was a success, allowing Fukuhara to release a second extended play in the series, The Soul Extreme EP II, led by the song "Get Up!" featuring Akiko Wada.

In 2012, Fukuhara debuted as an actress in the musical comedy drama Kaeru no Ojōsama, and performed cover songs for the song's soundtrack. In 2013, Fukuhara was announced as the 6th vocalist for pop group Sweetbox, and was the group's featured vocalist for their album #Z21. In 2015, Fukuhara set up an independent music label, Happy Field Records, and in December of the same year released an extended play of new material, Something New.
