A song from an unlikely source is creating shockwaves around the music industry.
Logic is an up and coming rapper from Maryland. Alessia Cara is one of the fastest rising stars in pop music. They teamed up for a song titled "1-800-273-8255".
If you're wondering why the strange song title...well, that's the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. And when you listen to the powerful lyrics in the song, it all makes sense.
With mental health and suicide in the spotlight right now following the success of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, the timing couldn't be more perfect, and social media is spreading the message of the song like wildfire.
