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 TimesRolling Stoneand 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.
