Today, chart-topping Michigan rapper NF releases the song “CHASING_(DEMO)” featuring 15-year-old Australian NF fan Mikayla Sippel. Listen here via NF Real Music/Caroline. The track quickly came to fruition as a surprise standalone moment for his fans outside of any album. “CHASING_(DEMO)” is a heart-gripping ballad about breaking down and wanting to break away. Backed by a sparse piano and moving violins, NF sings somberly in sync with Sippel’s soft, velvety voice: “I just want to run away. Find somewhere to feel safe.”
NF states “I posted a clip the other day of a song and was honestly shocked at how much you guys liked it. Every project I do there are a couple of songs that I hold back or just don’t feel like work and this was most likely going to be one of those songs. A day or so after I posted the clip I heard a cover a fan did of it and I was blown away by it. Long story short, my producer Tommee and I took her audio and ended up finishing it for you guys! Thank you Mikayla Sippel for letting us use your amazing voice and inspiring me to actually release it.”
“CHASING_(DEMO)” is a testament to the close bond between NF and his fans. He inspires them, yes, but they also inspire him to a profound degree.
