When Confessions dropped in 2004, it changed the R&B scene forever. Since then, things have been relatively quiet from Usher - until now.
Usher Raymond is an absolute musical legend.Born in Texas, and raised in Tennessee and Georgia, he's one of the best selling artists of the 2000s.
His first album, Usher dropped in 1994.And Usher followed it up with 1997's My Way, which spawned his first Billboard top 100 singles.
His third album, 8701 truly established him as a legend.It sold over eight million copies, and earned Usher 2 Grammy Awards in 2002 and 2003.
But there was one record that's the true Usher classic.Confessions was one of the best selling albums of the decade, shifting over twenty million copies worldwide.
The first 4 singles from the album went straight to number one.Honestly, who doesn't remember grooving along to "Yeah!", "Burn", "Confessions Part II" and "My Boo?"
Confessions is a total R&B classic.It was both critically acclaimed and popular with the public.
But since then, Usher has never matched the album's success.He's continued to work in the industry and create R&B tunes, but nothing has topped Confessions.
Until now.Since Confessions dropped, fans have been eagerly awaiting a follow-up album of similarly banging tunes.
And now it seems it might be happening.We're so excited for this news.
Over the years, there have been romors about Confessions 2.And the latest news seems to confirm what we've all been hoping for.
And now we've had a sneak peek.Very exciting stuff!
Here's a quick look.
Usher's still got it!

This Confessions is a bit different.
Because this one comes from the female's perspective on the relationship.

Some made this point.
How can he have enough confessions to fill a whole 'nother album?

Although others are more skeptical.
Could there be another reason for the new album?

What was kind of charming in 2004...Might be a little bit weird and creepy in 2020.
But we're still very excited.
And we're not ashamed! Fancy more musical news? Scroll on for the new Christina Aguilera song for the live-action Mulan remake ...
