Jennifer Hudson & Joe Biden lend their voices to Black Eyed Peas classic, now called "This Love"

Where words fail music speaks..

Producer extraordinaire Will-i-am teams up with Jennifer Hudson, Joe Biden and his group Black Eyed Peas for a remix of their 2003 single "Where is the love" which is still relevant today and has a revamped name "This Love" which also features a reminder from America's 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to vote.

The accompanying video mixes footage of protests, essential workers preparing for theCoronavirus pandemic, and more with shots ofJoe Bidenspeaking while Black Eyed Peas and Hudson sing along against a white background. Towards the end of the black-and-white clip, the focus turns to voting for love and equality— in this case, by ensuring that Biden is the victor of this year’s election.

Where is the Love is a protest songin its lyrics, but takes an intersectional approach to societal criticism from aracial justice perspective. Although initially intended as a vessel to post-9/11 anxiety, the song discusses the many issues that the 9/11 attacks touched, which include but are not limited toterrorism, US government, hypocrisy, racism, gang crime, pollution, war and intolerance, with the call for love in the chorus as the element tying these together. The line "Yeah we try'na stop terrorism - but we still got terrorists here living - in the USA, the bigCIA- the Bloodsand the Crips and the KKK" suggests these organisations being terrorists too.
