Today marks the 13th anniversary of Usher’s critical and commercial smash, Confessions. To celebrate the occasion, Consequence of Sound favorite BJ the Chicago Kid — who served as a background vocalist on Usher’s The Truth Tour — has released a new project paying tribute to the classic LP.
The appropriately titled BJTCK: A Tribute to the Anniversary of Usher’s Confessions features BJ performing stripped down covers of several tracks from Usher’s fourth studio album: “Confessions”, “Simple Things”, “Can You Handle It”, and “Superstar”. The Chicago singer’s distinctly smooth vocals allow him to put a unique stamp on the songs while still staying respectful to the originals. Stream it in full below.
