If you have been living under the rock or just extremely busy, just like me, most probably you didn’t know, that Black Eyed Peas reunited for a good cause approximately 6 months ago and remixed their own song. The song we all know so well. With a small bonus.
“Where is the love” was first released in June 2003, pointing out worlds problems such as US government, terrorism, pollution, war, racism, gang crime, intolerance and violence against LGBT community. As we can see, we didn’t go far from 14 years ago.
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 (Castile), and then Alton (Sterling) before him, and then Dallas. Everyone was calling on us like, ‘We need that song again’.
