Singer Usher is reuniting with Ludacris, Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri for new music, over a decade since their massive hit “Yeah!”
The news broke when a fan asked on Twitter, “Are Usher, John and Luda ever going to do it again?”
Lil Jon dropped the bombshell in a response, “WE DID IT ALREADY ? COMING ON @Usher NEW ALBUM ? ? ? ?.”
Ludacris took the tweet and posted it to Instagram captioned, “Sh-t Slappin Too ????.”
Jermaine Dupri commented, “Oh yeah!!! And don’t leave me out, I’m in on this too @liljon @ludacris.”
“Yeah!” was featured on Usher’s album Confessions released in 2004. The song became the track of the summer. The album stayed on the chart for over a year. It sold over 10 million copies in the US and 20 million worldwide.

Fans were quick to show their excitement writing “Can’t wait been a long time coming” and “Ya need to stop. I ain’t been to the club in a minute. I been looking for reasons.”
Following 2004’s Confessions, Usher released 2008’s Here I Stand (sold 5 million worldwide), 2010’s Raymond v. Raymond (which sold 2 million worldwide) and 2012’s Looking 4 Myself (504,000 copies sold).
His last album Hard II Love was released in September 2016. It failed to sell like his previous albums. Usher has been in the studio for months working on new music.
The new album is expected to be fire with the singer having quite the year.
Usher filed for divorce from Grace Miguel on December 28, 2018. The two married on November 1, 2015 and he listed the date of separation as December 24, 2017. The singer didn’t use his name on his divorce petition and instead used his initials of U.R. IV and G.R. (for Grace Raymond).
The two have been spotted hanging out multiple times and flirting on Instagram.
Usher also recently celebrated his 41st birthday with friends and family.
His ex-wife, Tameka Foster, sent him a sweet message on his big day. She wrote, “Happy Birthday Ush @usher … Please enjoy this trip around the sun! Many don’t realize that it’s always love even when it looks like hate and that you will forever remain in my soul circle… Anyway as long as you get it.? Framily Forever. and yes buddy you’re slowly but surely catching up ???♥️ #MeetTheParents #BestMistake #Grownish #ThankGodForYourBarber ????””
Jermaine Dupri surprised his long-time friend on his birthday. He video of a group of people bringing Usher a cake. The group then sings “Happy Birthday” to Usher as he stands on the wall.
