Sam Smith and Logic's latest video takes a hard look at the world's struggles and an introspective look at their own privilege. 

Smith told Billboard he wrote the song after visiting Iraq.

"I spent five days in Mosul and came back ­embarrassed that I had known so little about the world and other people’s lives..." he said. "I wanted to write about what is going on in the rest of the world, and that it’s not always pretty."
