Logic Single “1-800-273-8255” Now Certified Platinum

Logic single “1-800-273-8255” has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The single which features Alessia Cara and Khalid is anthem for fans battling depression and are considering suicide. The phone number for the title of the song is the actual number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Since performing the song at last month’s MTV Video Music Awards, the song has grown in popularity and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline has reported that they are getting a lot more calls.

The RIAA revealed on Thursday that the song is now platinum, meaning it has sold over one million copies in the United States. Logic explained on Twitter the reason why he felt it necessary to record the single for fans who are in a dark place. “Over the years so many of you guys have told me that my music has helped you through so many tough times,” he tweeted. “Many of you have told me its even saved your life. I’m beyond humbled. But I felt I haven’t done enough.”
