"We are all looking around at what's happening in the world and it is just messed up," Smith said of the inspiration behind the track. "You've got no choice but to look up to the sky and put your hands together and pray for something to happen."
The original "Pray," a collaboration with Smith's frequent creative partner Jimmy Napes, was produced by Timbaland and performed widely across late-night TV and awards shows. Last year, Smith brought the Logicless version to Saturday Night Live:
Smith is back on the road stateside starting in June. In addition to the previously announced run of arena dates, new stops in Los Angeles and New York have been added to accommodate for high demand.
Next for Logic, whose new Bobby Tarantino sequel just topped the Billboard 200, is an appearance in the Netflix and Mass Appeal original series Rapture. In a new teaser clip released Thursday, Logic chatted about his path to mainstream success and how he keeps his relationship with music pure. "Rap, it’s my way to vent and let other people know that I've been there and I know what it's like," he said.
Rapture premieres March 30 and also features in-depth looks into the lives and careers of 2 Chainz, T.I., Has, Just Blaze, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and more. Add season 1 to your queue.
