The Black Eyed Peas re-released “Where Is The Love?” in the wake of all the violence happening around the world and in our own country (US). If you’re criticizing the beat, you’re missing the whole point.
This isn’t on a WW because the message is more important than my schedule.
TBEP’s featuring The World, aka Mary J. Blige, Nicole Scherzinger, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx, The Game, Jessie J, Diddy, Andra Day, DJ Khaled, Tori Kelly, Jaden Smith, A$AP Rocky and Ty Dolla $ign.
The new lyrics reflect the terror in the world that is affecting us today. Especially the police brutality in the United States, the refugees of Syria, the ongoing ‘war on terror,’ which here in the US has turned to a witch hunt for Muslim people, and as they pointed out in the video, the upcoming election.
All proceeds go to charity.
Nearly 15 years after a post-9/11 landscape inspired them to write the original, The Black Eyed Peas have re-imagined their most beloved single at what feels like another critical moment. Its message hasn’t changed: With a lush but minimalist arrangement, this star-studded update is a timely reminder that love transcends hate. All proceeds from each sale of the single featured on this page will be donated to the i.am.angel Foundation.
