Trivia: The Black Eyed Peas - Where Is The Love?

I guess a lot of us knew the 9/11 bombing and it really affect all of the nation that ignited a high level security on every country. As for the US government part, they've dealt with a war between Iraq but there's a lot of civilians that's totally affected by it. So the group manage to craft a great song as a call to withdraw the US troops in Iraq. Late 2011, Ron Fair managed to initiate the molding of the lyrics with Will I Am that contributed the socially-conscious lyrics. Let me just include Justin Timberlake (JT) that sang the chorus part on which he contributed after listening the composition over the phone.

JT Part

"People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love"

This song really took an encore performance by reigning at the number one spot for 5 years in British and also the 2003 best selling record in United Kingdom. This song was also nominated for the "Record of the Year" in the Grammy Awards.

Did You Know:

The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK in the lyrics is a reference of the two gangs which is the Bloods and the Crips in the northeastern part of the US and the KKK represents the "Ku Klux Klan" or "The Klan" hate group.
