"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.

Music video[edit]

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]
