Black Eyed Peas Re-Record ‘Where Is The Love?’ with Jessie J, Tori Kelly, DJ Khaled + More
13 years ago, before they were "Boom Boom Pow"-ing in the clubs and playfully addressing Fergie's lady lumps, the Black Eyed Peas swerved into serious territory with "Where Is The Love?", a call to action addressing a whole host of social issues, including terrorism, gun violence and discrimination.
Unfortunately, the song's message is still needed — perhaps more than ever today. For that reason, the group is returning with a newly reinvigorated version of "Where Is The Love?", this time with a bunch of features.
"Everyone was calling on us, like, 'We need that song again'," will.i.am told ATTN.
The new version, which will benefit several charities including the Alton Sterling Fund, Dallas Police Officers and the Philando Castile Fund, includes assists from Tori Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Usher, DJ Khaled, Jaden Smith, Jessie J, Andra Day and Nicole Scherzinger. (See the full roster below.)
"The millennials are powerful. I don't think they realize just how powerful they are," will.i.am explained. "I hope this song inspires the millennials to go all out. Scream from the highest mountain. Care like your freedom depends on it. Pay attention like that is at risk."
