The new version of ‘Where Is The Love?’ comes with a staunch anti-gun violence message. The band said in a statement that the track “calls for calm, asking citizens of the world to stop the hate and violence that has resulted in many lives lost”.
The proceeds from the track will go to will.i.am’s i.am.angel foundation, which offers college scholarships to the underprivileged and describes its remit as “transforming lives through education, inspiration and opportunity”.
