“Overseas, yeah, they’re tryna stop terrorism / Over here, on the streets, the police shoot the people, put the bullets in ’em,” raps Diddy.
Watch the powerful black-and-white video exclusively via Apple Music.
According to will.i.am, the Black Eyed Peas decided the time was right to introduce the track to a new generation.
“Millennials are powerful,” he said. “I don’t think they realize just how powerful they are…I hope this song inspires the millennials to go all out, scream from the tallest mountain, care like your freedom depends on it. Pay attention like that is at risk.”
Proceeds from the song will reportedly go to will.i.am’s i.am.angel foundation, providing scholarships to the underprivileged.
