Chris Brown, Usher & Rick Ross Spark a ‘New Flame’ in Video: Watch
But there’s a surrealist twist in the video for Brown’s newest single “New Flame.”
Set in the clouds, the video aesthetic looks like what could be a René Magritte painting — or, at least, the leftover set from The Truman Show. Staircases lead to nowhere and are all-white, Usher dances atop a white platform in the sky and Brown twirls on top of water with an umbrella.
Elsewhere, everyone wears all white — except for presumably their new flame, who’s cloaked in red with a scarf over her face, and Rick Ross magically emerges at the end on a throne — surrounded by white bikini-clad ladies, of course.
