Logic’s blown up within the past year and it’s all due to his project Everybody. After years grinding on the underground, the Maryland rapper finally saw major recognition in the mainstream with the project. Last night, the rapper dropped his first solo track since the project and it was a glimpse the rapper digging into his roots. It wasn’t anything to appeal to the radio like “1-800.” Instead, he gave his core following what they wanted with straight bars. But there was a particular statement he made that caught ears.

A specific set bars on Logic’s latest track, “44 More” caught the attention his fans. The rapper claimed his 2017 release Everybody did better first week numbers than Katy Perry and Harry Styles.
“Talk all you want, we are not the same/ Step in the spot now they know the name/ Sold more albums my first week than Harry Styles and Katy Perry/ If that ain’t a sign the times then I don’t know what is, man this shit is scary.” He rapped on “44 More.”
The claim indeed was real. According to Billboard’s report, Logic sold 196K in his first week, while Katy Perry’s witness did 162K and Harry came 3000 units to matching Logic.
They also say there’s only seven other albums last year that outdid Logic including Drake’s More Life and Kendrick’s DAMN. Overall, Logic is out here killing the game.

Hopefully the release “44 More” is an indication he has more music coming soon.
