Logic and Sam Smith are about to drop an emotional new single.
Logic seems to be in a transitional period. While his the spark of longtime marriage seems to have fizzled out, his viability as a marketable artist has never been higher. Some might say, his recent return to bachelorhood arrived at the perfect time. The Bobby Tarantino 2 rapper continues to put in work, and while his latest drop was strictly for the hip-hop fans, he's never been more accessible to the mainstream audience. Now, Logic looks to land another emotional radio hit in the wake of 1800-273-8255. This time, he'll be joining the melancholic and wistful Sam Smith for a new single.
The singer took to Twitter to announce the news, revealing that Logic would be holding it down on an updated version of "Pray." In case you're unaware, "Pray" was actually released last year, on Smith's The Thrill Of It All. The ballad was inspired by Smith's time working in Iraq, in which he spent time contributing to the War Child charity. With shades of gospel influence, the piano based track should prove a solid backdrop for some Logic introspection.
Smith took to Twitter to praise Bobby, writing " It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Logic to create this, such an incredible artist." He went on to reveal that the updated version of "Pray" will be dropping this Thursday, so keep an eye out for this. Both Smith and Logic are no stranger to commercial success; it stands to reason that joining forces will prove beneficial to both parties.
