Usher Takes a Swim in ‘Dive’ Video
Usher is all wet in his new video for ‘Dive,’ his yearning love ballad from his latest album ‘Looking 4 Myself.’ The aquatic clip features the Grammy-winning singer aboard a luxury yacht which is being overrun with water.
The video could been seen as the flip side to Usher’s smoldering 2004 vid for ‘Burn,’ in which the bed he was lying on burst into flames. In the ‘Dive’ video, the crooner simply sits on his bed in a cabin waiting for the water to rise above his head.
Usher’s love interest in the video is Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman, and the two heat up the screen as they make passionate love to each other all over the yacht. And despite the boat being submerged in water, Usher and Iman still managed to keep their love afloat at the end of the video with a simple kiss.
Usher went on Twitter to give a cryptic description of the steamy video, which was directed by Chris Applebaum. “We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take, and how happy we are when we arrive.. Take that #Dive?” he tweeted. He then wrote a day later, “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.. Take the #Dive with me.”
Go deep with Usher, baby.
