Logic announces debut independent album ‘College Park’

Album’s debut single “Wake Up” is available now

Grammy-nominated rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer Logic returns with his eighth studio album and his debut as an independent artist. College Park is due for release February 24th via BMG.

In his first new label deal in nearly a decade, Logic signed a multi-album global partnership with BMG in 2022. In hand with the album announcement, Logic has released “Wake Up” as the first single from the forthcoming project.

This album represents a rebirth of sorts for the accomplished rapper. Logic is joined by an impressive range of features including Norah Jones, Seth MacFarlane, Joey Badass, RZA, Statik Selectah, Redman, Fat Trel, and Bun B.

Logic, born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, first gained widespread recognition with the release of his mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, in 2013. He soon signed to Def Jam Records, where he spent the next decade accumulating dozens of Gold and Platinum certifications, two Grammy Award nominations, and more than eight billion streams.

Logic’s impact in music has been undeniable. Following an emotional performance of his single “1-800-273-8255” at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, calls to that number, which connects callers to the US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, increased by 50%, according to the organization. A study from the British Medical Association reported, that in addition to soliciting almost 10,000 more calls to the Lifeline, the performance can also be tied to a 5.5% reduction in suicide rates among 10-19-year-olds.
