On Friday (Dec. 7), NF released his music video for “If You Want Love” from his most recent album, Perception. The project marked the rapper’s first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
The bittersweet music video starts off in a hospital, where a woman is giving birth. The story follows the loving couple as they raise the child, featuring sweet clips such as the toddler’s first steps, play time and eventually the grown-up teen going on her first date. Finally, we fly through her life and watch her get married as well. Everything comes full-circle and the video ends in the same way it begins.
NF explores the touching-yet-bittersweet cycle of life that we all know but somewhat fear. This beautiful video is paired with his lyrics that examine how quickly life goes by. “The older I get, I feel like I’m always tryna save time/ Talkin’ to the voices in my head, they make me think twice.”
The “Let You Down” singer is set to perform at iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball for two upcoming shows in Tampa, Florida, and Washington, D.C.
Check out the video for yourself, but be prepared to get a bit emotional by the end.
