The latest single from Michigan rapper NF features guest vocals from 15-year-old Aussie fan Mikayla Sippel.

CHASING_(DEMO) is the new track from the US artist and has been described as “a heart-gripping ballad about breaking down and wanting to break away”.

“I still can’t believe this is real,” local muso Sippel said, who was enlisted for NF’s latest single after he heard her cover of his song Wake Up.

“I just want to thank Nate and his team for everything they’ve done, for this huge amazing opportunity and the support. It has always been one of my biggest dreams to collab with Nate, but I never thought it would actually happen!

“Also want to thank the fan base for helping share my cover video around, without you guys it wouldn’t of happened!”

“And of course, thanks to the family and friends who believed in me when I had a dream and told me to chase it. Very blessed and thankful for each and every one of you! I’m pretty lost for words, but thank you Nate for helping me through the hard times. You’ve impacted my life so much... Never thought something like this would ever happen.”

NF added: “Thank you Mikayla Sippel for letting us use your amazing voice and inspiring me to actually release it.”

NF’s most popular track on Spotify, Let You Down, is swiftly approaching a billion streams on Spotify (sitting at 887 million at time of writing), while his second LP, 2019’s The Search, debuted at #1 in the US and peaked at #3 in Australia.
