"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 American rapper Rick Ross as a guest artist. 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. 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 the recording artist Kenn Rorery who died in a 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.
