NF’s New ‘If You Want Love’ Video Is a Mini ‘This Is Us’ Episode

NF is back in his lane of talking about deep-seated pain in his single “If You Want Love” off the album Perception. The song has some cutting lyrics about having to strive through pain in order to truly connect with someone. The video to go with it is appropriately painful, but touching, too.

The first verse of the song includes the lyrics:

Sometimes I think back to the old days
In the pointless conversations with the old me
Yeah, back when my momma used to hold me
I wish somebody woulda told me
If you want love, you gon’ have to go through the pain
The music video is currently one of the highest-trending on YouTube.
It plays out like a miniature episode of This Is Us, with generational conflict and notes of family legacy permeating its tiny story of father and daughter love.
