As we previously reported, Usher recently debuted “Confessions Part III” during a recent live performance at The Cricket Lounge.

On Wednesday (Feb. 26), Usher’s longtime producer and close friend Jermaine Dupri took to Twitter to speak on Usher’s new single because apparently his fans are “trippin” over it.

“I see y’all trippin…CONFESSIONS PART 3 is from a female’s perspective,” Dupri explained. “The song is about a girl cheatin’ on him and gettin’ pregnant by another man.”

“She is then being stuck with the decision to keep or abort it,” Dupri continued. “Now that he knows, should he stay or leave???”

“Remember that time I was sitting up sick, couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night? You said, ‘Bae, let me take you to the ER.’ I said, ‘Nah, Imma be alright.’ Well the next day I found out from [expletive] around that the sickness I had was life,” sang Usher.
