Logic partnered with Ryan Tedder on his first new single to drop since his last mixtape earlier this year, according to Rolling Stone.
The song proposes a brighter future for those who follow their dreams and promises tomorrow will be better. The lyrics describe Logic’s early life in a home where drug and alcohol addiction were prevalent and how he found success despite those circumstances. “Especially with a past like mine/ Drugs in the household/ Never had a hand to hold.” He describes the effort it took to achieve his current level of success, attributing it to hard work and sacrifice. Known for his outspokenness regarding social injustices, Logic uses his lyrical platform to inspire acceptance and harmony in the line “I’ma use this power to paint a picture of unity.” Tedder sings the chorus in the beginning and end of the song and throughout the track.

In addition to his collaboration with Tedder, Logic has partnered with Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T and Big Sean. His latest mixtape, Bobby Tarantino II, was released in March.
