It's been almost exactly 15 years since Usher released his landmark album Confessions, but he and producer Jermaine Dupri have indicated a sequel could be on the way. On his Instagram, Usher posted a picture of himself deep in thought next to a whiteboard, and upon closer inspection it's clear Confessions 2 is written on the board.
There's no tracklist featured in the picture, but Dupri reposting the image on his own account as well as Usher's caption certainly add fuel to the fire. "Dis what y'all what," he captioned the post.
Confessions has remained a seminal release for Usher, solidifying him in 2004 as a huge pop star thanks to hits like "Burn" and "Yeah!" among others. Moving 1.1 million copies during its first week alone, it eventually went on to become the second-highest selling album of the '00s. Back on its 10th anniversary, Dupri broke down the creative process of Confessions with Complex.
Dupri and Usher have been previewing new material together for quite some time now, but they still haven't indicated whether Confessions 2 is far off or dropping soon. Ush dropped his Zaytoven-produced record A last year, and his last solo project arrived in 2016 with Hard II Love.
Hopefully fans won't have to wait too long to hear what they've been cooking up.
