The Black Eyed Peas Remake Their Peace Anthem “Where Is The Love?”

It’s been 13 years since the Black Eyed Peas released their peace anthem Where is The Love which was written in the wake of the September 11 terror attacks in New York. And now the band has re-released it because they believe the world is suffering now more than ever. With increased attacks and violence across the globe it’s a song that touches the heart strings of all those that hear it.

“I remember when the attack in Paris happened and people would say “We need Where Is the Love” again,” the band said in a teaser for the release. “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, ‘We need that song again.’”

This time the band has used an array of celebrities and musicians to get their message across. Cameos include A$AP Rocky, Jaden Smith, DJ Khaled, P. Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Kendall Jenner, Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx, The Game, Kris Jenner, Nicole Scherzinger, Winnie Harlow, Lance Bass, User, Ty Dolla $ign and many others.

There are confronting images in the video, like the body of young asylum seeker Alan Kurdi who tragically drowned while trying to flee his war torn country. It shows images of countries currently torn apart by war and refugees fleeing their homes, and also speaks heavily on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and the ongoing issue of police brutality against black people in the US.

The proceeds from the song purchased on iTunes goes towards a range of different charities, which you can see on the website: wheresthelove.com

It’s tragic that 13 years on we haven’t learnt a single thing and we’re still here asking Where is the Love?
