AceShowbiz - Chris Brown has given fans a taster of his new single, "Cheating", with rising songstress Ella Mai.
The collaboration track was first previewed on social media last year but the "Loyal" hitmaker hinted at a summer release in an Instagram post on Wednesday, July 18.
Sharing another sneak preview of the smooth R&B track, Breezy's recognisable vocals can be heard alongside the glossy melodies of British singer Ella, whose breakout song "Boo'd Up" peaked at number five in the Billboard Hot 100 charts and has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) recognising sales of 1 million units in the U.S.
"Know you've got a girlfriend, you know that I've got him," the upcoming artist sings over the slick, mid-tempo beat. "I don't really care if I'm wrong right now, it ain't cheating."
"@ellamai CAN WE PLEASE PUT THIS OUT AND F**K THE REST OF THE SUMMER UP???? PLEEEEEAAAASSSSE???? #CHEATING," Chris, 29, captioned the video, which has already achieved one million views and a barrage of fan excitement.
Meanwhile, 25-year-old Ella joined fellow R&B singer "H.E.R." on stage in Camden, New Jersey on Wednesday during her support slot on Chris' "Heartbreak" on a Full Moon" Tour, which wraps in August.
The Instagram sensation has had Breezy's backing for over a year after he shared a video of himself dancing to Boo'd Up.
The pair have been vocal supporters of one another ever since - a dream come true for Ella, who admitted in a 2016 interview that his music has shaped her own sound since the age of 10.
"Chris Brown would definitely have to be a close number two," she told editors at The Fader when asked which artists were particularly inspirational growing up, having first cited "relatable" Lauryn Hill.
"I couldn't tell you what it is about his music that connects with me, but it's there, and it's been there since I was 10 or 11."
