Logic unleashes “1-800-273-8255,” a collaboration with Alessia Cara and Khalid off his forthcoming album, Everybody.
The track title refers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and is a direct commentary on suicidal thoughts.
“I don’t want to be alive / I just want to die,” says Logic on the intro before switching roles and stressing that there’s more to live for.
“I want you to be alive,” he sings. “You don’t gotta die.” In the end, Logic goes back to his original perspective and flips the negative to positive. “I finally wanna be alive,” he adds. “I don’t wanna die.”
In between these moments, Alessia Cara and Khalid join in with inspiring vocals about gratitude for life and overcoming pain.
