Halsey, who entered the pop music scene in 2014, rose to prominence in 2016 when she was featured on The Chainsmokers’ song “Closer.” The song spent 12 weeks at No. 1 in the U.S. and received a Grammy nomination for best pop duo/group performance.

After releasing a series of mixtapes, Logic released his first studio album “Under Pressure” in 2014, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. His third studio album “Everybody,” which was released in 2017 and debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., features his international top 10 single “1-800-273-8255,” a song that spotlights mental health and suicide prevention awareness.
