*”In Madonna’s video for “Ghosttown” – the second single from her album “Rebel Heart” – Madonna saunters through the neighborhood after a nuclear bomb has plunged the world into an apocalypse. Everything appears to be wiped out.
Except for Terrence Howard.
The “Empire” star not only emerges from the rubble, but he’s got a gun. Soon, he tosses it away so that he and Madonna can get their Dancing With the Stars on, emphasizing that they are “two souls in a ghost town.”
The video is directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who also helmed Madonna’s “Ray of Light,” “Music,” “American Life,” “Jump” and “Celebration” videos. Following two unsuccessful attempts to premiere it on the app Meerkat, Madonna said forget it and used Vevo instead.
