Man! When Usher came out with this album, I already knew this would be the peak of his career. As harsh as that sounds, it’s the absolute truth. There was no way the man could have topped this one. Coming off of a somewhat scandalous and unexpected break-up with Chili everybody was trying to figure out which songs were about or at least inspired by her. But we got far more than a tacky tell-all album, we got some great music. I was a sophomore in high school when this album came out in 2004. Confessions literally became the soundtrack of that school year. The album will always hold a special place in my heart as it became the icebreaker I needed to finally speak to the fione azz basketball player in my journalism class. Thanks Usher!
