The Black Eyes Peas have reunited in a big way.
After announcing their hiatus about five years ago, the alternative hip-hop group has reassembled to deliver an updated version of “Where Is the Love,” the hit single from their 2003 album Elelphunk.
In this rendition, Justin Timberlake accompanies will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie once again; however, Timberlake isn’t the only big-name feature this time around. Diddy, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, Tori Kelly, Nicole Scherzinger, Jamie Foxx, Jessie J, and Jaden Smith also make appearances.
In a promotional video for the project, The Black Eyed Peas explain their intentions behind the re-imagined song.
“I remember when the attack in Paris 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 then Alton before him, and then Dallas,” Will.I.Am said. “Everyone was calling on us, like, we need that song again.”
The “#WHERESTHELOVE” music video is now available on iTunes. Proceeds will go toward will.i.am’s i.am.angel foundation. Wheresthelove.com is also raising funds for the families of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Aylan Kurdi, and the officers who were killed in Dallas, among others.
