Who could forget The Black Eyed Peas’ 2003 hit single “Where Is The Love?” It was the group’s first single with Fergie, and tried to spread peace in a time of hate. After a rough 2016, maybe that’s exactly what we need — and might be exactly what we’re getting.
BEP are reuniting to bring “Where Is The Love?” back to life — this time, with an all-star roster. The group’s Instagram page has been counting down for the last few days with pictures of a question mark — the symbol that represented their single back in 2013 — leading up to today (Aug. 31).
Some of the stars included are Justin Timberlake (who was featured on the original track), Tori Kelly, The Game, Andra Day, Jamie Foxx, Nicole Scherzinger, and more.
“What ever happen to the fairness and equality” #dont4get to #payATTN and ask #WHEREStheLOVE tomorrow and everyday after that… @bep @therealmaryjblige @iamjamiefoxx @nicolescherzy @losangelesconfidential @andradaymusic @torikelly @justintimberlake @tydollasign @usher @djkhaled @asaprocky @christiaingrey
The song is expected to drop later today, and will benefit several charities including the Alton Sterling Fund, Dallas Police Officers and the Philando Castile Fund.
