The Black Eyed Peas came back together to remake their hit ‘Where Is The Love?’ with an updated cast of pop stars, rappers, and victims from around the world.
The members of Black Eyed Peas, Taboo, Apl.De.Ap, and Will.I.Am, said they decided they had to remake the track because of all the tragedies in the world, saying they need to “spread love like the world is depending on it… Because the world needs it right about now”. Along with Fergie, the fourth BEP member who joined for their 3rd studio album, the Black Eyed Peas remade the track with appearances from some of the worlds most high profile artists and celebs.

All proceeds from the track are going to the i.am.angel Foundation, a non-profit organisation started by Will.I.Am to offer college scholarships, college prep, and other educational assistance to those in need. The video and track were released exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music and are now available elsewhere.
