Usher Sinks Boat in New “Dive” Video


/ August 25, 2012

Do you want to be on a sinking ship? Let’s rephrase that question. Do you want to be on a sinking ship with Usher? Judging by the visuals for his latest single, “Dive,” the answer to that last question would be: yes. In the Chris Applebaum-directed video, Usher and his gal pal (model Chanel Iman) barely remember to come up for air as they rock a boat destined for the ocean floor. “Dive” is the latest single off the R&B crooner’s seventh album, “Looking 4 Myself,” released this past June. Usher teamed with producers Rico Love and Jim Jonsin for the steamy track, and teased the video’s release with tweets like, “We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take, and how happy we are when we arrive.. Take that #Dive?” But as the video suggests, when Usher asks if you are ready to take that dive … he’s not thinking into water, he’s thinking into bed.
