DMV’s Own Logic Sparks the Conversation About Suicide During VMA’S as “1-800..” Single Races Up Charts

DMV’s own Logic represented in a powerful way at Sunday’s VMA’s. He performed his single “1-800-273-8255,” which is the actual phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.  He rapped lyrics like “I want you to be alive / You don’t gotta die today,” he stood alongside survivors of suicide attempts and individuals who lost people in their lives to suicide. The song touches home for me because I have been personally affected by suicide and people who deal with depression.

Logic performed the song alongside Alessia Cara, Khalid, and suicide attempt survivors.

The statement of support for people dealing with depression and other mental illness appears to have left an impact on viewers. Billboard reports there was a 50% increase in calls to the number after Logic’s performance. The Lifeline’s Director of Communications Frances Gonzalez stated, “Sharing that healing and hope are possible helps individuals in crisis, [and] as changes the conversation around suicide from one of isolation to one of hope and connection.”

The song is also impacting charts as the national platform of the VMA’s gave awareness to the positive song. According to HitsDailyDouble , “1-800-273-8255” saw a sales boost after the VMAs. The song jumped from #18 to #3 on the iTunes Store chart after his performance.
