With the 20th anniversary of Usher‘s highly praised Confessions album approaching next year, the singer has denied any hope that there’ll be a sequel.

“That’s just a rumor, at this point,” he told The Shade Room of a second part to Confessions. “But, who knows? When we get there, we’ll see.”

“We got time. There’s space and opportunity to think of new ideas,” Usher continued, before praising the original album and all those involved in making it a classic. “But the one that is 20 years old was a brilliant one. For every producer, writer and creative that had anything to do with it, we celebrate 20 years of an album,” he said. “I mean, most people don’t even have careers that last that long. So, to have an actual album that has stood the test of time? I appreciate my fans for continuing to love the music.”

Usher’s Confessions dropped in March 2004, featuring the title tracks “Yeah,” “Burn” and “Caught Up.” He performs songs from the album and his entire discography during his ongoing residency in Las Vegas.
