Logic’s “1-800-273-8255″ Hits Five Times Platinum
Logic's Grammy Award-nominated song "1-800-273-8255," a collaboration with singers Khalid and Alessia Cara, continues to be the best-selling single of the rapper's career. After the record was certified four times platinum on Feb. 13, the track has now hit five times platinum.
The five times platinum certification was issued by the Recording Industry Association of America on Aug. 20, but Logic celebrated the news on Twitter on Thursday (Aug. 23), tweeting, "Damn I went 5 times Platinum today."
The certification is just the latest multi-platinum plaque for the rapper, whose "Sucker for Pain" collaboration with Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors went three times platinum in June.
Logic will try to match the success of "1-800-273-8255" with his latest socially conscious track, "One Day" featuring singer Ryan Tedder. After releasing a video for the song, the Maryland rapper delivered a powerful performance of the record during the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.
Sporting a "F*ck the Wall" shirt, Logic and Tedder were joined by more than 200 children, siblings and parents who were affected by U.S. immigration laws, as they wore "We Are All Human Beings" shirts.
In related news, while it's yet to be confirmed if Logic is working on a new project, the rapper recently claimed to be sitting on seven unreleased projects. "WE GOT MUSIC!!!!!! 80 unreleased songs, 7 projects. Not for those who hate but for those who love us! We making music every and SELLING OUT ARENAS!!!!" he tweeted in July. He just released the new song "The Return" this week as well.
