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.
