"New Flame" is a song recorded by American 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. This song is also known for being the final song to ever feature writing, singing, and production credits of recording artist Kenn Rorery who died in a tragic car accident in February of that same year just before the song's official release at the age of only 21. Brown performed a small live tribute at the 2014 Soul Train Awards in honor of Rorery.

Music video

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.
