"I'm a Flirt" is a song by Bow Wow featuring R. Kelly. The song was scheduled to be the second single released from Bow Wow's fifth album The Price of Fame but the decision was changed to "Outta My System". Instead, it appears as a bonus track on the album. The remix of "I'm a Flirt" became the first single from R. Kelly's album Double Up and peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. This video was premiered on BET'S Access Granted on March 7, 2007.

Unique chart methodology[edit]

For the song's chart run in the United States, Billboard magazine listed both versions of the song at one position on its music charts, even though R. Kelly's version received more radio play and downloads. This was explained in Michael Paoletta's "Inside Track" column in the March 3, 2007 print edition of the magazine:[1]

Versions of the song have been recorded by both Bow Wow and R. Kelly. Bow Wow's version features Kelly, who co-penned the track, while Kelly's version features T.I. and T-Pain. Due to the similar characteristics of each song, the plays for both versions will be totalled under one chart listing. "I'm a Flirt" first appeared on Bow Wow's Columbia/Sony Music album 'The Price of Fame' as a bonus hidden track. iTunes shoppers, though, can purchase the track as a single, as Columbia has download rights—but not the singles rights to promote it to radio. Kelly's 2007 album 'Double Up' includes his version of the song.
