Hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas got back together and re-released their 2003 single ‘Where’s The Love‘ this week as a way to bring attention to some of the problems in the world, as well as to raise money for the i.am angel Foundation benefitting various youth programs.
The song was originally released in response to the 9/11 attacks. The updated version has been released to try to draw attention to all the hatred in the world, and the violent acts that result from it. Acts that, in the 21st century should not be happening.
And what is cool about this remixed version of the hit single is the video that came along with it, as it features a whole slew of artists who added their support. Artists like Andra Day, Jaden Smith, Wiz Khalifa, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Nicole Scherzinger, Jamie Foxx and Mary J. Blige.
The Black Eyed Peas have also added photographs taken at some of the awful events still happening in the world — the protests in Ferguson after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a white police officer, the Syrian conflict, the terrorist attacks in Europe, and the violence in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Watch it below. It’s a powerful video.
