Usher’s “Confessions” Turns 10

by

AristaIt’s hard to believe that it’s been a decade since Usher released his critically-acclaimed album Confessions.

The crooner is celebrating the tenth anniversary of his disc, which arrived in stores on March 23, 2004. The project is widely regarded as a turning point in Usher’s career and spawned many of his biggest hits, including “Burn,” “My Boo” featuring Alicia Keys, “Caught Up” and “Yeah!”

Confessions was his first studio album to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 and first to sell more than one million copies in its first week. The crooner’s set later won a Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Album and was certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, meaning it sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S.

Usher is currently working on his eighth studio effort, which will serve as the follow-up to 2012’s Looking 4 Myself.
