Michigan rapper NF returns with the stirring new single “HOPE,” out today via NF Real Music/Virgin Music HERE. The lead single from his fifth album, also called HOPE(pre-order HERE ) finds the multi-Platinum hitmaker at his most raw and unfiltered as he assesses his musical journey thus far and looks to the future. The album is available for pre-order HERE in a variety of formats including limited-edition boxsets, vinyl, and CDs signed by the artist.
The track is accompanied by a suitably uplifting visual, which captures the MC’s defiance and authenticity.
HOPE is the fifth studio album from the Billboard chart-topping, multi-platinum rapper. Known for rapping quick-witted lyrics over hip-hop beats and cinematic production, NF has built an obsessively loyal fanbase that has earned him the ranking of one of the Top 50 Most Streamed Rappers of All Time and established NF as one of the most consumed artists today. NF’s HOPE is a 13-track album boasting notable Grammy-nominated features with singer/songwriter Julia Michaels and rapper Cordae.
“What’s my definition of success? Listening to what your heart says,” NF spits. “Standing up for what you know is right while everybody else is tucking their tail between their legs.” He then repeats the question and elaborates on his response: “Being brave enough to dream big, grinding when you’re told to just quit.” NF shares his personal statement on perseverance in the face of adversity and what it takes to succeed. “It’s believing in yourself when no one else/Does it’s amazing/What a little bit of faith can do/If you don’t even believe in you/Why would you think or expect anybody else/That’s around you to,’ the song shares.
“HOPE” is the lead single from the rapper’s first album since 2019’s platinum-selling The Search and his first longer project since 2021’s acclaimed CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) mixtape.
Since launching his career with 2015’s Mansion, the hip-hop heavy hitter has built an enormously loyal following that has earned him over 30 billion streams, 65 global certifications and counting as well as two chart-topping albums and 50 million weekly catalog streams. With the arrival of “HOPE,” NF is ready to reach even greater heights.
