"New Flame" is a song by American R&B recording artist Chris Brown. It was originally released as a promotional single from Brown's album on March 5, 2014. This version only featured Rick Ross as a guest artist.[1] A few months later, a day after the 2014 BET Awards were held in L.A., the single version of the song featuring Usher was released on June 30, 2014,[2] as the fifth official single from his sixth studio album X. The song has so far peaked at number 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It also peaked at #10 in the United Kingdom, making it Ross' highest charting single there. It was released as a single exactly 9 years after Chris Brown's first single, Run It!
