Logic‘s music is saving lives one song at a time. His third studio album Everybody includes the single ‘1-800-273-8255’ which reflects the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The track features today’s young musical talents in Alessia Cara and Khalid, both whom are under the age of 20, and unofficial spokespeople for America’s adolescents. With the RattPack rapper’s idea paired with the help of the young stars, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and social media sites have generated unprecedented numbers regarding Logic and suicide.

On July 12th, Logic posted a screenshot of the NSPL’s press release that exhibited nearly record breaking numbers. NSPL stated that on April 28th, the date of the song’s release, they received their second highest daily call volume in history (4,573).
Additionally, the Lifeline’s website generates around 300,000 visiting users per month. The website saw over an additional 100,000 visiting users during both months of April and May.
From a social media aspect, Facebook saw three times its usual traffic on the song’s release date, while Twitter generated 1 million impressions within five days of April 28th.
Logic deems this record as “the most important song I’ve ever wrote…” and pushes this record alongside his wife and Elysium record label signee Jessica Andrea during a segment on his Everybody’s Tour.
