Wreckage! Rain! Snow! Wind! Possibly overextended metaphors that liken broken relationships to hurricanes and the Great Depression! The video for Usher’s “Moving Mountains,” the second single from Here I Stand, has all this and a perhaps-unwitting homage to Madonna’s video for “Frozen” (around the 1:30 mark). And it also has a marketing campaign involving rumors about Usher and his wife, Tameka Raymond, splitting after just nine months of wedded bliss! Looks like someone’s getting a big bonus just in time for the long weekend… [YouTube / E!]
