Chris Brown’s “New Flame”: Listen To The Usher- And Rick Ross-Featuring Synth Jam

Chris Brown, never one to set pop or R&B forward, has offered up “New Flame,” a cut that features Breezy on the first verse, Usher on the second and a rap by Bawse Rick Ross topping the whole thing off. The main hook here is a monotonous synth loop that runs throughout while all involved croon over the otherwise bright track.

“New Flame” is harmless enough, but if anything, it has us wondering why we’ve yet to hear that Breezy/Ariana Grande duet that was teased back in April? Give this new one a listen below.
