We propose a new quintessence scenario in brane cosmology, assuming that a quintessence field Q is confined in our three-dimensional brane world. With a potential (Formula presented) (Formula presented) we find that the density parameter of the scalar field decreases as (Formula presented) in the epoch of quadratic energy density dominance, if (Formula presented) This attractor solution is followed by the usual tracking quintessence scenario after a conventional Friedmann universe is recovered. With an equipartition of initial energy density, we find a natural and successful quintessence model for (Formula presented).
