Ryan Tedder and Logic dropped a hopeful new track geared toward dreamers wishing for a brighter day called “One Day” through Visionary Music Group (Listen to it above). The Grammy-winning OneRepublic frontman opens the song with the chorus and sings about putting “all of my faith in tomorrow” while dark days keep him up all night. He reassures us, though, in the last line “Only one thing I know/It’s gonna be alright.”

Logic takes over in the first verse and lyrically paints his rags-to-riches life story in which he went from being homeless to earning his first million and overcame a tough past with “drugs in the household” and “never a hand to hold.” He’s keenly and candidly aware of his bold lifestyle transformation and promises to use his platform to promote unity. He also tries to encourage others to hold out hope for climbing out of their own circumstances saying, “Even when I was homeless in the blisterin’ cold, I made it out/And if I can, you can, no doubt.”
The Maryland native rapper expressed his excitement in the track’s release via Twitter dedicating it to “everyone out there with their dreams and goals!” His followers continue to stream messages of gratitude, love and support in reply.
“One Day” follows Logic’s Billboard 200 chart-topping mixtape Bobby Tarantino II which features guest appearances from Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Marshmello and more. The audio-only YouTube video to support “One Day” has garnered over 424,000 views since its July 26 posting and topped Spotify’s New Music Friday ranking on July 27.
As previously reported, Logic made one fan’s dream come true shortly after the Bobby Tarantino II release, by paying for her and her brother to travel to see him perform live. He is currently touring to support the critically-acclaimed mixtape and is slated to perform on the star-studded iHeartRadio Music Festival performer roster on Saturday, Sept. 22 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (Tickets).
