WATCH: Black Eyed Peas back with star-studded 'Where Is The Love?' remake
MANILA, Philippines – Thirteen years after the release of the Black Eyed Peas' "Where Is The Love?," its message still rings true.
On Wednesday, August 31 (Thursday, September 1 in Manila), the Black Eyed Peas, who have been on hiatus since 2011, released a remake of their 2003 hit.
The remake, credited as by the Black Eyed Peas, featuring The World, features many artists and personalities, including Kendall Jenner, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jessie J, Tori Kelly, DJ Khaled, and many more.
All the proceeds from Apple music will be donated to the i.am.angel Foundation, a non-profit organization that transforms lives through education and opportunity. i.am.angel was founded by will.i.am in 2009.
In a video on ATTN:, Black Eyed Peas band members Taboo, will.i.am, and apl.de.ap shared about where they were during the 9/11 attack, the event that inspired the song.
"My grandma said a prayer and said that we shouldn't stay home and be afraid when you're being called on to do as much healing as you can with the gift that was given to us," said will.i.am.
He added later, "I remember when the Paris attack happened, people would say, we need 'Where Is The Love?' again. And then Belgium happened. And then Turkey, and then Orlando, and then Philando, and Alton before him, and then Dallas. Everyone was calling on us, like, 'we need that song again.'"
will.i.am also called out to the younger generation to take action: "I hope this song inspires the millennial to go all out. Scream from the tallest mountain. Care like your freedom depends on it. Pay attention like that is at risk." – Rappler.com
