Usher is an American singer-songwriter. He made his professional debut as a recording artist in 1994 with the release of his self-titled debut album. However, mainstream success only came some years later with his second album My Way. In the 2000s, he released his third album 8701, which generated the hit singles “U Remind Me” and “U Got It Bad”. The release of the fourth album Confessions in 2004 brought him greater success. It produced the popular singles “Yeah!”, “Burn”, “Confessions Part II” and “My Boo”. He has since released the following albums: Here I Stand (2008), Raymond v. Raymond (2010), Looking 4 Myself (2012), and Hard II Love (2016). Over the course of his career, Usher has sold about 75 million records.
