A Christian rapper who has recorded songs with Toby Mac and Flame has the top-selling album in the United States according to Billboard.
NF’s new album The Search grabbed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s chart for the week of Aug. 10, edging Of Monsters and Men, Chance the Rapper, the Grateful Dead and Justin Moore. His 2017 album Perceptionalso hit No. 1 on the chart.
“I put my life into this and to see this much support means a lot,” he wrote on Twitter. “… The fans made this album #1, and I am forever grateful.”
NF’s songs are free from the coarse language that litters much rap music, although he mostly rejects the “Christian rapper” label. Two of his first three albums were released by a Christian label, Capitol Christian Music Group (CMG).
“I’m a Christian, but I’m just an artist,” he told Idolator, a music blog, in 2016. “To me, it’s like if you’re a Christian and you’re a plumber, are you a Christian plumber? That’s the easiest way for me to explain it. I just make music. I talk about my life, I talk about my faith. I talk about positive things that I’ve dealt with that have taught me things and I talk about negative things that I’m dealing with. I wouldn’t describe myself as that, but I am a Christian.”
