Thirteen years has passed but the world is still asking “Where Is The Love?”
The 2003 smash hit was originally inspired by the September 11 terrorist attacks and singer/producer Will.I.Am says “Everyone was calling on us, like, we need that song again.”
Will.I.Am listened, the powerful track is now set to be revamped and re-released with the influence of millennials contributing.
“The millennials are powerful, I don’t think they realise 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.”
The likes of Kendall Jenner and Jaden Smith will contribute to the new track, as well as Jessie J, and Justin Timberlake will make a comeback. Other A-listers who’ve signed on include Mary J Blige, Nicole Scherzinger, Usher, Jamie Foxx, Diddy, DJ Khaled, Andra Day, Tori Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign and The Game.
