6. "Confessions (Interlude)"
You felt the impact of Confessions not only on the TV, radio and club scene, but also in everyday conversations. Say word your innocent phone call has never been answered with “I'm in the booth, I'mma call you right back” or serious conversation punctuated by “Put that on everything.” That alone gets Confessions’ first interlude in the top 10 (the extended version, “All Bad” might’ve made best three). But more importantly, “Confessions (Interlude)” is the album’s conceptual introduction, put in its plainest terms. Usher lets it all hang out.
