Logic’s “Everything” has its own style

As someone who discovered Logic’s music summer after junior year and has since listened to a select few of his songs every now and then, truthfully, his new album Everybody was something I stumbled upon after finding that Khalid was featured on one of the songs.  

But after listening a few times through, I was extremely pleased with it. Each track has its own style, keeping you on your toes for what is to come. A key quality of a solid album.

But what I think I enjoyed most about this album is the diversity in structure and relevant topics found within the songs. He talks about very meaningful things and inputs his own opinions and/or personal stories with each topic, enabling the listener to feel a deeper connection to the lyrics.

He includes an entire song, “Waiting Room,” that is strictly a conversation between two men about life, humanity and reincarnation. Initially, the conversational structure may bore some, but should you choose to listen the whole way through, and truly listen to what is said, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a very interesting point of view.

From there he moves to another song called “1-800-273-8255,” which is without a doubt my favorite song from the album. It features Alessia Cara and Khalid, immediately creating high expectations, which were surpassed. The song is beautiful and raw and begins with reasons why he doesn’t want to live. He then moves on to show that suicide isn’t the answer — where Alessia Cara comes in. And I swear the song would not have been complete without the 10 lines that she sings in the entire song. It gives me goosebumps every time I listen.

I think the songs “Everybody” and “Anziety” are the ones most true to Logic’s style prior to this album. On the second song of the album, also the album title, “Everybody,” he raps about racism and stresses the importance of racial equality. And on “Anziety,” the final line says that “we will accept ourselves as we are and we will be happy with the person we see in the mirror. We will accept ourselves and live with anxiety.” Enough said.

Whether or not you were a fan of Logic’s music prior to this album, I truly believe that Logic has something to offer for everybody, on Everybody. Give it a listen!
