Intro is the ominous opener to NF’s album Mansion. Rhyming over thunderous orchestral crashes, NF delivers rapid fire bars throwing the listener into the hip hop world of hustle, passion and struggle.
All I Have
Not new to long time fans ‘All I have’ was a single on NF’s debut EP. With the hard-hitting sentiment that “I’m a Christian but I’m not perfect” NF showcases his singing ability and lyrical gymnastics on this standout track.
“You spend your life in a dream you can’t escape. You live your life in a coma you’re never awake.”
NF’s latest video finds him pacing around a darkened hotel room struggling to find some kind of answer in a struggling relationship. Hitting a raw nerve his lyrics tackle being abused, dealing with anger issues and losing his mother to a drug overdose.
I’ll Keep On ft. Jeremiah Carlson
With a soaring chorus sung by Jeremiah Carlson, ‘I’ll Keep On’ feels as though it would be at home in a Mumford set or slotted into the worship on a Sunday morning.
Turn the Music Up
With a nod to the dance floor, this song is perhaps NF’s most hype track he has released. From what he’s released, it’s his most lighthearted with NF going in over a house/EDM beat.
FLAME – Start Over ft. NF
Start Over finds NF handling the chorus duties on one of FLAME’s biggest tracks. The song finds NF’s vocals in fine form as he delivers a catchy and empowering chorus.
