Yeah! (2:00)

Cover of Confessions

From Confessions and 4 other releases

Yeah! is a song by American R&B singer Usher, written by American songwriters and producers Lil Jon, Sean Garrett, Patrick J. Que Smith, Ludacris, Robert McDowell and James Elbert “LRoc” Phillips for Usher’s fourth studio album, Confessions (2004). The track was produced by Lil Jon which he combined crunk and R&B genres, triggering positive reviews from music critics. The song features Lil Jon and rapper Ludacris.

The song was released as the lead single from the album in early 2004, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for twelve weeks. It performed equally well on international music markets, topping several charts. The single was certified platinum in various countries and the song received awards.

In 2003, Usher submitted his fourth studio album, Confessions, to his label Arista Records, thinking it was already completed. However, when Usher and the company’s then-president Antonio “LA” Reid listened to the songs, they felt the album needed a lead single. Although they had “Burn”, the first song created early in the making of the album, as waiting list, Usher had to record few more tracks.

Usher went back to the studio and enlisted fellow Atlantians rapper-producer Lil Jon, alongside rapper-actor Ludacris, to produce songs for him. Lil Jon recalled: “He needed a single. They had ‘Burn,’ ‘Burn’ was hot, but they needed that first powerful monster. That’s when I came in.”
