Chad the Stud Debuts Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Where is the Love’ Rework
“It’s a great message about peace.” - Chad the Stud
Back in 2003, the Black Eyed Peas impacted the world when they released their cry for peace song, ‘Where is the Love?’. The Grammy-nominated song came out at a time when the world was suffering from political and social unrest.
13 years later, people are still asking the same question, “where is the love?”. It’s 2016 and the question is probably more relevant than ever.
A post-9/11 landscape had inspired them to write the original, but The Black Eyed Peas have reimagined their most beloved single at what feels like another critical moment in our history when for the past few months we’ve experienced more terrorism, gun violence and hate. ‘Where is the Love’’s message hasn’t changed: With a lush but minimalist arrangement, this star-studded update is a timely reminder that love transcends hate. All proceeds from each sale of the single will be donated to the i.am.angel Foundation.
The Hip-Hop gurus of the early 2000’s have now joined forces with the who’s who of the music world today to recreate the iconic song. Joining will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie are Justin Timberlake, who was a co-writer of the song and featured 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.
Chad the Stud debuted the song during his show Midday Vibes on 1 September 2016 and called it a “magnificent song about peace and love”.
