For as much as NF (a.k.a. Nathan Feuerstein) upholds a mantra of “Real Music,” he does so support by a real movement. Existing on the fringe, he pulled the mainstream to him with his third studio album, Perception. Shocking the industry, countless fans showed up and lifted the record to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, representing the ultimate underdog story of 2017 chronicled by The New York Times, Forbes, and more. Moreover, its lead single “Let You Down” earned a platinum plaque and encroached half-a-billion Spotify streams in under a year.
