In a video for ATTN:, the group explained that they decided to release a toned-down version of their hit single from 2003 due to the recent unsettling events happening in different parts of the globe.
"I remember when the Paris attack happened, people would say, we need 'Where is the Love' again," will.i.am. said. "And then Belgium happened. And then Turkey, and then Orlando, and then Philando [Castile], and Alton [Sterling] before him, and then Dallas."
"Everyone was calling on us, like, 'We need that song again,'" he added. "I hope this song inspires the millennial to go all out. Scream from the tallest mountain. Care like your freedom depends on it. Pay attention like that is at risk."
