Usher’s single “Yeah!” Is a single released in 2004 from his fourth studio album Confessions and features Lil Jon and Ludacris. The single charted #1 in both the United States and the United Kingdom on Billboard. The single would stay on the top for 12 weeks (Songfacts). His next single off his album Confessions, “Burn,” would dominate the charts for another 8 weeks after the fact. In fact, three of Usher’s singles off this album would be in the top 10 at the same time, making him the third artist to do this (the Beatles and the Bee Gees were the other two artists). In the first week, Confessions would go on to sell over a million copies. “Yeah!” is still hailed as an iconic pop song and is still played today.
