ASAP Rocky, Diddy, The Game and More Join The Black Eyed Peas for “#WheresTheLove”
In 2003, the Black Eyed Peas dropped their heartfelt hit single, "Where is the Love?" Thirteen years later, they deliver an updated version of the Elephunk song featuring 14 other artists, including A$AP Rocky, Diddy and The Game.
BEP members will.i.am, Fergie, apl.de.ap and Taboo partake in the 2016 anthem about peace, love and unity. In addition to Rocky, Puffy and Game, the group enlisted a ton of other artists such as Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, Justin Timberlake, Ty Dolla $ign, Usher, DJ Khaled, Jaden Smith, Jhené Aiko, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and LL Cool J.
The video also features Alton Sterling's wife, Philando Castile's mother, a 40-member children's choir, various religious leaders, police officers and more. You can watch the poweful, black-and-white video here via Apple Music.
The Game spits, "Where's the love when a child gets murdered / Or a cop gets knocked down / Black lives not now / Everybody matter to me." Meanwhile, Rocky and Jaden Smith join forces for a verse, rapping, "My mama asked me why I never vote / Cause police men want me dead and gone / That election looking like a joke / And the weed man still sellin' dope / Somebody gotta give these niggas hope."
Will.i.am spoke with ATTN about the updated/remixed version of the song, which is aimed at millennials. He says, “Millennials are powerful. I don’t think they realize just how powerful they are…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.”
All proceeds from the song's sales are going to will.i.am's i.am.angel Foundation, which helps change lives through inspiration, opportunity and education.
