Due out April 7, NF’s new project, HOPE, will be his first since 2019’s The Search. The Christian rapper shared the album’s title track back in February alongside an accompanying visual.
The profound Patrick Tohill-directed clip finds NF examining his internal struggles while stranded by himself on a wooden treebark platform in the middle of the ocean. He miraculously makes his way to the shoreline in inspiring fashion.
In contrast to his all-white wardrobe, an NF draped in black invades the scene and pushes him through the roof of what appears to be a prison of sorts, where he’s forced to combat the struggles going on inside his head.
The Michigan native’s previous two albums both went No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 2019’s The Search pulling the upset over Chance The Rapper’s The Big Day to nab the top spot.
On the album he addressed his constant comparisons with Eminem, among other things. His knack for personal lyricism and over melodramatic production made the project an impactful listening experience and validation for the aforementioned comparison.
In the time between his last LP, NF delivered his CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) project in 2021, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and saw guest appearances from Tech N9ne and Hopsin.
