"New Flame" is a song recorded by American singer Chris Brown. It was originally released as a promotional single from Brown's album on March 5, 2014. This version only featured American rapper Rick Ross as a guest artist.[1] A few months later, a day after the 2014 BET Awards were held, the single version of the song featuring Ross and American R&B singer Usher was released on June 30, 2014, as the fifth official single from his sixth studio album X.[2] The song peaked at number 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 10 in the United Kingdom.

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was released on August 14, 2014.[3] Rapper Tyga makes a cameo appearance in the video.[3]

The video starts with Chris Brown standing in a white location wearing white clothing. The visual then shows Brown standing in the front fire. Usher appears standing in a high large structure upon a pool with a girl wearing a red colored long dress. When the visual comes to rapper Rick Ross, he's shirtless in a white room and sitting in a white chair. The music video ends with Chris Brown and some dancers are dancing in the front of fire.
