Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Hudson
I’m a child of the 60’s. I remember the protest music that made its way into the mainstream during the Vietnam war. Not many of those were in the airwaves until now when some have really made their way out.
I think this is a known song that has been adapted to the current time.
“Where Is the Love?” is a song by American hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas. It was released in June 2003 as the lead single from their third album, Elephunk. The song was written by will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, Justin Timberlake, Printz Board, Michael Fratantuno and George Pajon.
Six-time GRAMMY® award-winning Black Eyed Peas and Grammy® and Academy® award-winning artist Jennifer Hudson create “The LOVE,” an adaptation of “Where Is The Love,” the Black Eyed Peas’ anthemic global hit song played frequently in troubling times.
Stylistic elements of will.i.am’s iconic 2008 “Yes We Can” music video, later harnessed by the Obama-Biden campaign are also incorporated, this cycle using portions of Joe Biden’s DNC acceptance speech delivered on August 20th, 2020 in the opening and closing verses of “The LOVE.”
