Throwback Thursday: Jermaine Dupri – “The Party Continues” (featuring Da Brat & Usher)
After years of making hits for other artists, Jermaine Dupri decided to put his magic to work for himself.
In 1998, he released his debut album, Life in 1472. Its lead single, “The Party Continues,” is a bouncy bop that lives up to its title. The track features Da Brat and a then-19-year-old Usher, who had just become a superstar following the success of “You Make Me Wanna….”
“The Party Continues” would go on to peak at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was ranked No. 92 on the year-end chart.
