Logic might have just dropped one of the most important videos of the year, to go along with the rapper’s emotional single ‘1-800-273-8255.’
If you are unfamiliar with the meaning behind the single, or the title of the song, the above 1-800 number is the outreach line for anyone suffering from thoughts of suicide.
In the theatrical-like music video, Logic, featured singers Khalid, Alessia Cara, and a star-studded cast of Hollywood actors, deliver a riveting visual that tackles the issues behind suicide awareness.
In the nearly 7-minute video, the story of a young man, played by Coy Stewart, who falls in love with his classmate, played by Nolan Gould, shows their parents objections to their relationship. Stewart’s character endures school bullying, family neglect and relationship objections, which leads Stewart to contemplate suicide by putting a gun to his head.
As the video flash forwards to the two men celebrating their same-sex marriage, with their parents, the song’s creators appear throughout the video on computer screens.
