“Where Is The Love” Makes A Massive Comeback With A Star-Studded Cast
It’s been 13 long years since Where is the Love by the Black Eyed Peas first came out, but the message couldn’t be any less relevant today. In response to the countless atrocities happening all around the world and even here at home, the Peas have decided to make a contemporary version of the song to let their voices be heard once again“”but this time, with a little help from some friends.
The reboot features images of the Syrian refugee crisis and the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two of the latest victims of police brutality in the US. Aside from the original band members, artists like Mary J. Blige, Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx, Audra Day, Nicole Scherzinger, Cassie Ventura, Jessie J and Usher all contributed supplementary vocals to the track. Diddy, The Game and A$AP Rocky also contributed verses to the song, most of which were targeted at American politics. Young celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Shailene Woodley, Vanessa Hudgens, Tori Kelly and Jaden Smith also made brief appearances in the video.
While the new version is a far from the original, the message here is clear: the world needs love, not hate. Watch the video here:
