More than any other single artist, Nike Ardilla was the driving force behind the return of teen pop Rock in the late '80s. Nike Ardilla didn't just become a star—she was a bonafide pop phenomenon. Not only did she sell millions of records, she was a media fixture regardless of what she was (or wasn't) doing; among female singers of the era (many of whom followed in her footsteps). From the outset, Nike Ardilla's sex appeal was an important part of her image. When Ardilla's debut album titled "Seberkas Sinar" was released in mid 1989, it entered the charts at number one and stayed there for ten weeks.
Once the ubiquitous lead single died down, the album kept spinning off hits: Number one single "Seberkas Sinar", the Top 10 ballad "Cinta Pertama", and the Top 5 "Tembang Asmara". By the end of 1989. Seberkas Sinar had sold 1 million copies, and went on to sell a good three million more on top of that. Its success touched off a wave of young Lady Rocker that included Anggun C Sasmi, Poppy Mercury, Inka Christie, and Mayang sari.
Nike Ardilla was a superstar, drooled over in countless magazines. By the time ...Seberkas Sinar finally started to lose steam on the singles and album charts, Nike Ardilla was ready to release her follow-up. "Bintang Kehidupan" appeared in the spring of 1990, and the title track was an instant smash, racing into the Top Number One. The album itself entered the charts at number one and sold over 500.000 copies in its first week of release, setting a new record for single-week sales by a female artist.
Follow-up singles included "Salut", the gold-selling "Putih." A year after its release, Bintang Kehidupan had sold over two million copies.
