NF just dropped his highly anticipated album The Search and it has hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. 

The album dropped July 26 and is his second No. 1 on the chart.

The rapper wrote a heartfelt message to fans about the album topping the charts.

“I want to thank every single fan who supported me by buying this album,” he began. “I put my life into this and to see this much support means a lot to me. Thank you to my management team for working so hard to make things happen, thank you to my producers / friends who spent countless hrs in the studio with me, and thank you to my label for letting me do whatever I want creatively since day one.”

“The fans made this album #1, and I am forever grateful,” he continued.

 

Before it dropped, NF released three singles and videos from The Search to show fans what the record looks and sounds like. 

He gave us a first look into his new music by dropping an incredible video for “The Search,” which you can watch below. 

Then, a few weeks ago, NF dropped the second single from his fourth full-length album called “When I Grow Up.” Check that out below.

Then, he dropped “Time,” which confronts the way time affects relationships. It makes the listener question their perception of time and the world around them. You can see it for yourself below.

You can listen to the full album below.

NF also announced The Search tour which will launch this fall. The 29-date run will kick off Sept. 12 in Pittsburgh and finish up with his debut at Red Rocks Oct. 13.
