LOGIC RETURNS WITH HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM, NO PRESSURE, AVAILABLE TODAY
FULL-CIRCLE REUNION WITH NO I.D., LEGENDARY SUPER-PRODUCER OF LOGIC’s LANDMARK DEBUT ALBUM, UNDER PRESSURE (2014)
LOGIC’S FIRST NEW MUSIC SINCE CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND, HIS FOURTH #1 ALBUM ON BILLBOARD 200
24 JULY 2020 (TORONTO,ON) - Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum artist Logic gets back to the roots of his craft with his new album, NO PRESSURE, available at all DSPs today via Def Jam Recordings/Visionary Music Group/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.
After six years of major career accomplishments, including four #1 albums, NO PRESSURE brought Logic back in the studio with renowned producer No I.D., who actually signed Logic to Def Jam and produced his groundbreaking RIAA gold debut album of 2014, Under Pressure. Working again with No I.D., and 6IX, NO PRESSURE is the full circle career moment for Logic, making the music he loves with ‘no pressure.’
“This album is a return to form for me. It is a culmination of all the things I’ve learned mentally, spiritually and technically,” said Logic. “And most important it is an album that is strictly for fans of hip-hop music. It’s an album I’d been planning for years and what I believe to be the perfect farewell.”
Prior to NO PRESSURE, the ever-prolific Logic released five albums: Under Pressure (2014); The Incredible True Story (#1 chart debut in 2015); Everybody (#1 chart debut in 2017; YSIV (aka Young Sinatra 4, #1 chart debut in 2018); and Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind (#1 chart debut in 2019). Logic’s Bobby Tarantino II mixtape entered at #1 in 2018.
In March 2019, “Supermarket,” the dazzling debut novel by Bobby Hall (aka Logic), entered the New York Times Paperback Fiction list at #1, making him the first-ever hip-hop MC to author a New York Times fiction bestseller. Logic’s accompanying Supermarket “soundtrack” album was released simultaneously via Def Jam/Visionary. The album’s Top 10 debut on the Billboard Alternative Album chart was an ‘Alt’ chart first for Logic.
Logic’s most recent Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind Tour, presented by Live Nation in October-November 2019, was a 26-city tour of the U.S. and Canada. He was joined on most dates by special guests J.I.D. and Confessions collaborator YBN Cordae.
Multi-platinum, Grammy Nominated artist Logic (aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, aka Bobby Hall) – among the top streaming artists in the world with billions of streams to date – burst onto the music scene through a series of mixtapes that led to a significant, rabid underground fan base. Those tapes – Young, Broke, and Infamous (2010); Young Sinatra (2011); Young Sinatra: Undeniable (2012); and Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever (2013) – garnered millions of downloads and streams. They jumpstarted a worldwide tour that led up to his record deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2014, and the release of his debut album Under Pressure that year. Logic kept up the pace with his second album, The Incredible True Story (2015, with the RIAA gold “Fade Away”), followed by Everybody(2017), containing the landmark 5x-platinum “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid. Overlapping Logic’s albums were new mixtapes Bobby Tarantino (2016, with the RIAA gold single “Flexicution”), and Bobby Tarantino II (2018, with the RIAA platinum “44 More” and “Everyday”). YSIV (September 2018), the fourth chapter of his Young Sinatra saga, contained "One Day" which Logic performed with Ryan Tedder and over 200 immigrant children, their siblings and parents at the MTV VMAs. 2019 kicked off with the publication in March of Supermarket (Simon & Schuster), the debut novel written by Bobby Hall, which entered the New York Times Paperback Fiction bestseller list at #1 – first-ever for a hip-hop artist. It was accompanied by the Supermarket “soundtrack” album, which debuted inside the Top 10 on the Billboard Alternative Album chart, an ‘Alt’ chart first for Logic. The prolific artist dropped his fifth studio album in May 2019, Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind. It was preceded by the title tune single and video, “Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind,” and RIAA platinum “Homicide” featuring Eminem.
