Logic teams up with the talented Alessia Cara and Khalid to gift us a powerful video to accompany what might be the biggest hit of his career, the song “1-800-273-8255.” The track explores the sensitivities of depression and suicidal thoughts; more specifically, the visual delves into a gay relationship and the complications that erupt given the protagonist’s sexuality, such as rejection from friends and family. Actors Don Cheadle and Luis Guzman star in the video as the protagonist’s father and coach respectively. Logic has been credited for catalyzing a twenty five percent spike in calls to “1-800-273-8255,” as the song title is the number to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The song has peaked at 47 on Billboard’s Hot 100, however it’s social impact is beyond measure.
