Usher Shares On “Confessions” Losing Album Of The Year Grammy

Usher, the renowned American singer, songwriter, and dancer, recently spoke about his disappointment in not winning Album of the Year at the 2004 Grammy Awards. During the awards ceremony, his fourth studio album, Confessions, was nominated for the prestigious award but lost to Ray Charles’ final album, Genius Loves Company. In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Usher shared his thoughts on the impact of the loss. He revealed that he was still upset about it and felt that Confessions deserved the award more than any other album that year. Despite losing out on the Album of the Year award, Confessions managed to win three Grammy Awards in different categories. These include Best Contemporary R&B Album, Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the hit song “My Boo,” and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for the chart-topping single “Yeah!”.

Usher also emphasized that the Grammys still matter to artists and that their recognition is a significant factor in their success story. He believes that winning a Grammy Award is a recognition of an artist’s hard work, talent, and dedication towards their craft, and he also admits that with age comes maturity in understanding these things and how to react to them.

Quoting, Ush said,

“I didn’t win Album Of The Year that year, and I’m still a little like, ‘Damn.’ I don’t know if there’s been an album that has actually sold as many or been as influential as that album has been,”
