Leave it to Logic to sample the classic Christmas track, "Deck the Halls," elevate the timeless tune with speedy bars on "Fade Away" and bring both cuts to our 2017 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One in Los Angeles on Friday (December 1).
After being presented by Elvis Duran, Sofia Carson, Bebe Rexha and Francia Raisa at the KISS-FM-hosted affair, the 27-year-old budding superstar kicked off his 15-minute set with the holiday medley. Backed by DJ Chase Marchetti, the multi-talent brought his flow and candid banter to The Forum.
If you can listen beyond the slightly eerie sample, you'll realize that "Fade Away" has a much bigger significance than just a cut that has sampled a holiday tune. "'Fade Away' is about accepting death and this is just a personal opinion that no matter who you are, what historical figure, any of that, one day your name will be forgotten," the rapper previously told Genius. "Whether a comet hits the Earth or we all repopularize one day, you’ll be forgotten. Do something for you before you fade away."
Elsewhere in his set, Logic ventured into his other cuts like "Everybody," "Black SpiderMan" and, of course, his breakout hit, "1-800-273-8255."
If you missed out on all the action, consider this your holiday gift. You'll be able to relive the night on The CW during a special 90-minute broadcast on December 14th and 25th at 8 p.m. ET/PT -- so put on your Santa hats, grab some gingerbread cookies, and tune in!
