From multiple variant releases, nationwide in-person independent retail campaigns signed CDs and working steadfastly with DSP partners before the album had even been released, the work behind the album promotion earned Cindy James, the Senior VP of Commercial Marketing at Virgin Music the title of Executive of the Week by Billboard.

However, at the core of it all is the fact that NF has long since collected a dedicated fanbase who loves his music and will show up to support it.

In fact, much of the mainstream media has not given the album much of a look as Pitchfork, the leading publication in music has not even touched the album, after giving a 4/10 to his last work.

The only other major voice who has commented on the album is Anthony Fantano of the Needle Drop, the most popular music YouTuber on the platform. On a review he dropped on April 22, 2023, the music critic rated the album a NOT GOOD/10, where he bemoaned the record's lack of direction and focus.

NF First album Moments

NF first album Moments came out on November 29, 2010. It is his only independent record and was self-released.

The album is also his only one not to have charted on any of the Billboard charts. The record was a product of the rapper's lifelong love of rapping, which had always been an escape for him.

NF recorded his songs on a karaoke machine where he would record his instrumentals on one mic and then rap on the other. As expected, the album didn't do much in terms of sales and garnering public attention, with the rapper not even releasing his first single until a year later. 

It wouldn't be until NF's debut EP, I'm Free, that he would gain some attention, which would also include an extended version of his debut single, Alone.

Is Hope NF Last album?

No Hope is not NF last album. However, it is the most recent album the rapper has released.

Given the massive commercial success the album is currently undergoing, despite the critical backlash, the record has no chance of being the rapper's last. In fact, the rapper announced a 47-stop world tour to support the album with featured rapper Cordae as his guest on March 30.

That is not the sign of someone who is planning to leave the music industry. Though he has many detractors, NF also has one of the most dedicated fan bases in music, with his followers viewing the artist with an almost messianic eye.

The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, and the only reason it didn't top it is because it was blocked by Country superstar Morgan Wallen's One Thing at a Time.
