Clocking in at four minutes, 11 seconds and 777 words, lead single/title track "The Search" gives fans plenty to unpack, as NF lays bare his psyche, revealing some of the darker corners he's found himself in and mapping out the ambitious quest that lies ahead.
I've been searchin
What does that mean Nate? I've been learnin
Grabbin my keepsakes
Leavin my burdens
Well I brought a few with me I'm not perfect
Lookin at the view like this concerns me…
Cold world out there kids grab your coats
Been a minute I know now I'm back to roam
Looking for the antidote
To crack the code
The Search is NF's fourth full-length album. It follows the independently released Perception (NF Real Music/Caroline), which took the music industry by surprise when fans propelled it to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 upon its release. Also topping Billboard's Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, Perception was the ultimate underdog story of 2017, as chronicled by The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Forbes, with the latter noting, "NF's success speaks to what can be done these days outside of the traditional system."
Now certified Platinum in the U.S., Perception has earned more than two million album equivalent units worldwide while cumulative streams have surpassed 3.5 billion. Singles like "Let You Down
" - 3x Platinum and a No. 1 Pop radio hit in the U.S., and certified Platinum or higher in seven additional countries - "Lie" and "If You Want Love" further expanded NF's fanbase, paving the way for his sold-out, 87-date 2018 Perception World tour of North America
and Europe, numerous festival appearances and the direct support slot on Logic's Bobby
Tarantino Vs Everybody arena tour.
