“Confessions” Usher (2004)
The diamond status album released in 2004 brought us more than just great R&B. The popular track of the same name had many people convinced that the album had everything to do with Usher’s public breakup with Rozanda ‘Chili’ Thomas just months before the album’s release. In 2010 Usher was featured in E’s True Hollywood Stories series and “Confessions” was discussed. However, JD, who served as executive producer for the album, claims that the album and that song in particular was more his story than the R&B singer. “Confessions was actually about a relationship I was in,” said JD. “I got another woman pregnant, and my girlfriend wouldn’t take me back.” I hope he wasn’t talking about that whole “him cheating on Janet with a stripper” mess…but either way, it made for some classic music!
