The Black Eyed Peas first released "Where Is the Love" with Justin Timberlake following the 2001 terrorist attacks, but after a year of tragedy, gun violence and hate crimes, the group is going to release a new rendition of the hit track for a new generation.
The proceeds from the new single going to will.i.am’s i.am.angel foundation, with a motive of putting an end to gun violence in America, reports Associated Press. “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.’”
The revamped version will star stars Jamie Foxx, Ty Dolla $ign, Mary J. Blige, Justin Timberlake, Kendall Jenner, Nicole Scherzinger, Diddy, DJ Khaled, The Game and Jaden Smith in the video. "The millennials are powerful, I don't think they realize just how powerful they are," will.i.am. said in the video. "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."
