Chris Brown Drops Usher & Rick Ross Collabo "New Flame"

Although we have no idea when his long-delayed sixth album X will actually drop, Chris Brown is giving us another track from his upcoming double LP, and it features R&B superstar Usher and rap heavyweight Rick Ross.

"New Flame" could be the hit from X that Breezy is searching for—the combined croon power of CB & Usher is something to blush at, and Rick Ross is a reliable guest spitter. With an 808 beat, low bass line and a few synth-y strings, it has the set-up of a trap banger but comes across like a silky ballad. It's sexy, hooky and probably the best thing we've heard from X so far.

Listen to it above.
