DJ Wade-O recently sat down with Capital Records artist NF to talk about his upcoming album Mansion, his approach to features, and his favorite song on the project. In case you didn’t catch the interview, here’s 5 things I learned:
1. “Mansion” is probably NF’s favorite song on the album. He wrote it in a hotel room in Nashville, and loves the way that Fleurie is “married to the beat” on the chorus.
2. He thought it was cool that Fox used “Intro” (aka the Godzilla track) in the season finale promo for the popular television series ‘Empire.’ He was pleasantly surprised that they used a good amount of his actual lyrics throughout the video.
3. Nate (NF) doesn’t actually live in a mansion, but he did recently move from Michigan to Nashville.
4. Instead of using his growing popularity to link with more established producers, he chose to stick with Tommy and David Garcia who he has worked with in the past. Tommy produced most of Mansion; David produced “Mansion,” “Wait” and “Face It.”
5. The lack of features on Mansion comes from a belief that features shouldn’t be forced, most of them came about randomly thought the process of making the project. NF would like to work with Da’ T.R.U.T.H. and Flame (again) in the future.
