Watch now: NF lets himself drown and burn in new video for "Let You Down" 

Jon Taylor SweetRapper and singer NF, born Nathan Feuerstein, topped the Billboard album chart in October with his album Perception, and now he's released a video for his hit single, "Let You Down."

The clips shows an older man standing on a dock looking at a lake, while a fully-clothed NF drowns right in front of him.  As he flails and tries to keep from going under, the man just looks at him, and doesn't help.  Then, we see the same man, staring at NF who's trapped in a burning car.  As it's engulfed in flames, the man again makes no move to help.

Then we see the older man in a field, staring into a freshly dug grave.  Inside the grave is a coffin, and NF is inside, dead.  The older man seems upset by this, and falls to his knees.

In the final shot, the older man is back on the dock, looking at NF drowning once again.  But then a woman approaches him on the dock and says, "Nathan?"

So what does it all mean?  The lyrics of the song seem to be written from the perspective of a child telling a parent that he's sorry he's let them down.  But does NF feel that he's let himself down?

NF's Perception tour kicks off January 23 in Birmingham, AL.
