It’s been 15 years since Usher released “Confessions,” and he might just be celebrating the album’s anniversary with a part two.
This week, the singer hinted at the possibility of a sequel to his 2004 project on Instagram. He posted a picture of himself in the studio near a white board with the words “Confessions 2” at the top. The rest of the words were blurred out.
In the caption, he wrote, “Dis what yall want...”
He also uploaded a song snippet to his Instagram stories.
“Confessions,” produced by Jermaine Dupri and many others, was Usher’s fourth studio album. It sold 1.1 million copies in its first week, and is the second-best selling album of the 2000s decade in the United States, according to Billboard.
The Grammy-award wining album spawned the No. 1 hits “Yeah,” “Burn,” “Confessions Part II,” and “My Boo.”
When fans heard the artist might be returning with a follow-up to the classic, they took to Twitter to share their excitement.
