Juanes joined Logic and Alessia Cara on stage at the Latin Grammys Awards on Thursday to perform a bilingual remix of Logic’s song “1-800-273-8255.”

The song delivers an important message, empowering people suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts to seek help and know it can get better. The title is the phone humber for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) hotline, ensuring fans know where they to call for help.

As the performance began, the backdrop lit up with a different number – the Spanish-language NSPL hotline.

The original version of the song was released in April in partnership with the NSPL.

At the time, Logic spoke out about his own struggles with depression, and dedicated the song to those who, as the songs says, can relate.

And the NSPL reached out to him, thanking him for his advocacy.

In an official statement, the NSPL outlined the impact the song has had on their call volume.

Since the release of the song, call volume to the NSPL has skyrocketed, as did interactions on social media, with many callers mentioning the song in their conversations with crisis centers. Logic himself tweeted out the statement, calling “1-800-273-8255” the “most important song” he’s ever written.

Logic thanked the Latino community for welcoming him with open arms and for, erm, creating his beautiful wife.

Although “creating my beautiful Mexican Wife” sounds a little weird out of context, his wife Jessica Andrea is, indeed, Mexican. So, you’re welcome, Logic.

VMAS…you were something else ?

All jokes aside, the song has been helpful for many. Logic spoke to Genius to explain the song’s lyrics and meaning.

He shares that during a cross country tour, he heard from fans that his music saved their lives. While he says that was a positive, unintentional outcome, those fans pushed him to write a song that actually aimed to help people and save lives.

Hopefully with the remix and by sharing the Spanish language hotline number, Juanes can have the same impact with Latinos.

If you or a loved one is in need of help, the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. For Spanish speakers it’s 1-888-628-9454.
