The HIT is an Anthem for Suicide-Prevention and never actually mentions the titular phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, but it makes a heartfelt attempt at assuring listeners someone is there for them.
Logic scored the biggest hit of his career this year with “1-800-273-8255” featuring Khalid and Alessia Cara, and now he’s sharing a new music video for the track.
The moving song embodies a call to the suicide prevention network, where Logic and his collaborators enact a call in, its response and the result.
Logic continues to ride the wave of his chart-topping album Everybody, a release that has gifted him with many triumphs in the music business this year. Whether he’s selling out stadiums and performing in front of tens of thousands of people or if he’s simply trying to spread those positive vibes to his fans and followers via Twitter, his recent album has given him the platform to do some societal good with his music. Now, he’s returned with a powerful new set of visuals for his song “1-800-273-8255.”
In addition to continuing the dialogue around suicide prevention, the song has been directly credited with inspiring a 25 percent increase in calls to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. “1-800-273-8255” peaked at No. 47 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year.
