Usher On Confessions Pressure: ‘There Are High Peaks and Low Valleys’

Usher is not sweating pressure to live up to his 2004 effort “Confessions,” an effort that holds the title of being the best selling R&B album of the last decade. “There are high peaks and low valleys in life, some moments will be higher than others, but it shouldn’t speak to the honesty and truth that you kinda go through in the process of making music,” Usher told BET when asked about “Confessions” and attempting to reach for the same success with “Raymond V. Raymond”. While the singer admits that Confessions “is a lot to live up to,” he says “There are going to be some chapters of my career’s music that will be greater than others. I don’t feel I have to live up to anything, I just feel I have to be as honest and as artistic as I can.” Usher’s latest effort, “Raymond V. Raymond,” featuring the singles “Lil Freak,” “OMG,” and “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home),” is slated for release Tuesday, March 30.
