Black Eyed Peas Reunite For "Where is the Love" Revival

In the midst of a trying year, The Black Eyed Peas have quasi-reunited in an effort to give us something to be grateful about.

The group released an updated version of its 2003 hit "Where Is the Love?," and this time around, it features a host of notable names. Joining will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie are Justin Timberlake, who was on the original track, as well as Kendall Jenner, Mary J. Blige, Diddy, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, Tori Kelly, Nicole Scherzinger, Jamie Foxx, Jessie J, Usher, Jaden Smith, Quincy Jones, Snoop Dogg, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Randy Jackson, Wilmer Valderrama, Omarion, French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, LL Cool J, Shailene Woodley, Vanessa Hudgens, Lance Bass, Connie Britton and more. In a separate video, the group explained the impetus for re-imagining the song, which originally debuted as a response to 9/11.

"I remember when the attack in Paris happened, people would say 'We need "Where Is The Love?'' again.' And then Belgium happened, and then Turkey, and then Orlando, and then Philando, and then Alton before him, and then Dallas. Everyone was calling on us like, 'We need that song again,'" will.i.am said. T

he proceeds for "#WHERESTHELOVE" will benefit the will.i.am's i.am.angel foundation. Watch The Black Eyed Peas talk about the events that inspired the song's release above, and then see the star-studded "Where Is the Love?" music video on iTunes.
