Early Life[]

Maeda Irori was born on May 7, 1997 in Hyogo, Japan to a couple whose names are undisclosed.


In 2004, Maeda Irori successfully passed the Hello Pro Egg Audition 2004 along with 31 other girls. Unlike the other members, she did not start activities right away. This was because she had trouble traveling to Tokyo, and as such she worked through Hello Pro Kansai until 2006.

On August 25, 2006, Maeda Irori made her first appearance as a member of Hello Pro Egg at a public recording of the Hello! Project radio show Hello Pro Yanen! featuring ℃-ute as the hosts. There, she was introduced to the fans alongside SI☆NA. As with all other Eggs, she received free dance and vocal lessons in order to prepare her for potential debut and had performed as a backup dancer at Hello! Project concerts.

In November 2006, she finished training under Hello Pro Kansai, and began activities under Hello Pro Egg.


In 2007, all of the members of Hello Pro Egg, including Maeda, officially debuted in concert at the Dai Ikkai Hello! Project Shinjin Kouen ~Saru no Koku~ / ~Tori no Koku~.

On March 30, 2008, she joined the new group HAPPY! STYLE under UP-FRONT STYLE.

In September 2008, Maeda performed at the Happy! Style Communication Circuit 003.


In 2009, she was added to Shugo Chara Egg! as a second generation Amulet Clover, and participated in two Shugo Chara Egg! songs, Watashi no Tamago and Arigato Ookiku Kansha.

After spending several years in Hello Pro Egg, Maeda withdrew in November 2010. Her last performance as a member was on November 28, 2010 at 2010 Hello! Project Shinjin Kouen 11gatsu ~Yokohama JUMP!~.


After withdrawing from Hello Pro Kansai and Hello Pro Egg, Maeda auditioned for AKBN0, and passed. She attended her first event as a member of AKBN0, and was introduced via AKBNGO, a show AKBN0 airs. She became an official 5th generation member of AKBN0 alongside Oosumi Riyon, and changed her stage name to Maeda Clover Irori (前田クローバー彩里) during her time in the group.


Maeda announced that she would be retiring from AKBN0 and their sub unit Chance at the end of March 2012, not long after she posted a blog entry saying that she saw a Hello! Project concert, and missed being on the stage. The official reason for her graduation was that she wanted to gain experience in different environments. She closed her blog that was associated with AKBN0, and later opened her own new blog. During her time in AKBN0, Maeda participated in two singles, "Gomen ne, My Way" and "Junjou Satellite", although Junjou Satellite was released after her departure.

On July 17, she participated in a live event at Shibuya Deseo, marking her return to activities and the start of her solo career.


On March 3, Maeda opened her own YouTube channel.

Maeda announced and performed her first original song titled "Yakusoku".


On January 12, Maeda joined the idol dance unit Teen's☆Heaven.[1][2]

On February 20, it was announced that Maeda would release her first single, Yakusoku / Kimi Tokidoki Heart, on March 5.


On December 12, Maeda announced her 2nd one-man live on December 28, would be her last live, and would retire from the entertainment business on the same day.[3]
