The followup to Usher’s 2004 Diamond certified album Confessions is clearly on it’s way, with both him and his longtime producer Jermaine Durpri hinting at it for quite some time. The two even stirred up quite the ruckus last month when Usher previewed what appeared to be “Confessions Part 3,” and was seemingly confessing to something very personal, with fans theorizing that it was about him having an STD, while other guessed that he was alluding to getting another woman pregnant. Nevertheless, the juicy sampler was enough to get fans eager to hear what else Mr. Raymond has cooking.
Now, Usher has returned with the lead track from his forthcoming project, which features songstress Ella Mai. The duos “Don’t Waste my Time” flips the Hi-Five 1990 classic “I Like the Way” for a lighthearted melodic mashup, reminiscent of early 2000’s R&B, which would be right on brand for the Confessions continuation. To kick off the release, he even dropped a house party filled visual to go along with the track.
And just like that, Usher has scored himself another hit.
