The Black Eyed Peas Remake “Where’s The Love,” Inspired By Series of Tragic Events

The Black Eyed Peas are back to once again to ask the masses “Where’s The Love?”

FergieWill.I.Am, Apl.De.Ap and Taboo recreate their hopeful anthem to inspire a new generation to take a stand.

Featuring an all-star line-up that includes Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, Nicole Scherzinger, The Game, Jessie J, Andra Day, Tori Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Usher, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, Jaden Smith, and Justin Timberlake; Will.I.am told ATTN:,

“Everyone was calling on us, like, we need that song again.”

The remake was sparked by the tragic events that have taken place here and abroad. From the terrorist attacks in Paris, Belgium, and Turkey; the deaths of Philando Castille, and Alton Sterling at the hands of police; to the attacks on law enforcement in Dallas; and the Orlando mass shooting, the group felt it was a message the world desperately needed to hear.

The group hopes the record will resonate with Millennials like it did with the masses back in 2003. Will.I.am explains,

“Millennials are powerful. I don’t think they realize just how powerful they are. I hope this song inspires the millennials to go all out, scream from the tallest mountain, care like your freedom depends on it. Pay attention like that is at risk.”

The song is set to debut later on today. Until then check out a clip of Will.I.am, Apl.De.Ap and Taboo discussing with ATTN: what inspired the original and what led them to create a remake.

Jamie Foxx’s Impersonations of John Legend & Jennifer Hudson Are Completely Hilarious!

jamie-foxx-jimmy-fallon

If there was ever a book on ‘How To Do The Best Impersonations,’ Jamie Foxx would solely be the author of that best-selling book. On last night, the comedian/actor stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for the ultimate game of Wheel of Musical Impressions.

Within the melodic challenge, Jamie takes on the impressions of John Legend, Mick Jagger and Jennifer Hudson. To add, Foxx touches more on John Legend’s character when performing live. We can’t call it shade because Jamie is a comedian first and just naturally funny as hell. But is there a little singers rivalry under the alleged shade tree? Hmmmm…watch below and see for yourself:

Singer/Actor Jamie Foxx debuts a new tune called “Pretty Young Thing” produced by DJ Mustard.

Going back to the R&B roots that we all love, Foxx ties-in the hook of the late Michael Jackson‘s “P.Y.T.” 1982 classic. With Jamie’s smooth vocals in tow, the song comes off quite nice, while getting you in the rhythmic mood to dance.

Peep the track below:
