Alessia Cara Explains Why '1-800-273-8255' Is So Important

Alessia Cara and Logic are opening up about the importance of their hit song “1-800-273-8255.”

The 21-year-old singer and 27-year-old rapper performed the song and explained its meaning while recently making an appearance on The Ellen Show.

“I just felt that it was something so important that nobody really talks about especially in the mainstream world. It’s always a touchy, almost taboo, subject to talk about,” Alessia said of the anthem about suicide prevention.

She added, “But this is real and there’s so many people, even people close to me, who have…felt like their lives aren’t worth it. I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about that and let people know they’re not alone.”

Logic later added that he’s excited about the direction of music, saying, “I’m excited for what else we’ll get to say together.”
