Logic’s ‘1-800-273-8255′ Is Helping Save Lives

The most important song I've ever wrote…

A post shared by logic301 (@logic301) on

Back in April, Logic released a powerful song called “1-800-273-8255” (featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid), which addressed the issue of suicide among young people. On the song, which takes its name from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number, the DMV rhymer comforts a suicidal person and explains every reason why the person should live.

On Thursday (July 13), Logic posted on his social media accounts the song’s accomplishments since its release through the NSPL. On the day of the song release (April 28), the NSPL hotline received over 4,573 calls, which is the second highest daily call volume in history of the organization.

On the social media side, the song generated three times the traffic on NSPL’s Facebook page and 1 million impressions on Twitter within five days after the release. The Lifeline website also saw over 400,000 users in April and May when typically they get around 300,00 users.

In the end, Logic’s song brought awareness and attention to suicide prevention and in some cases could have possibly help people overcome some difficult situations.

Currently, Logic is looking to do more positive work through his own indie label Elysium Records.

“Elysium was created mainly because I don’t trust anybody else with the precious cargo that is my family,” he said in a YouTube video. “I wanted to create a place where they can feel free and literally do whatever they want because this is so much more than just music. It really is a family.”
