It could be argued that Jermaine Dupri and Usher were instrumental in each other’s success in so many ways. Recorded within the years 2003 and 2004, Usher’s Confessions album is to this day considered the singer’s major opus, spawning several of his greatest songs, including “Burn,” “Confessions Part II,” and “My Boo.” It goes without saying that Dupri played a centrifugal role in grouping all the elements together, that much is certain.
So, why spark the debate over a 2nd Confessions album? Usher’s numerous Instagram followers asked themselves the same question, albeit with less difficulty. The first and only Confessions series was published in the spring of 2004, several months after “Yeah!” hit the press, literally shifting the landscape of contemporary music in the process.
In the above Instagram post, Usher points to a scribble board containing the words “Confessions.” Of the right of the photo, the caption reads, “Dis what yall want…” in reference to a second installment.
Couple that with the Instagram video Jermaine Dupri posted three days ago, where he and Usher give us an insider’s look at the pair’s creative process. Mind you, there’s no reason to believe they were working on Confession II when the aforementioned video was posted. Dupri and Usher have done this sort of thing in the past.
