‘The LOVE’, el apoyo de Black Eyed Peas y Jennifer Hudson

La banda estadounidense Black Eyed Peas y la cantante, además de actriz, Jennifer Hudson se han unido para el tema ‘The LOVE’, que no es más ques una adaptación de ‘Where Is The Love’, una de las canciones de éxito mundial del grupo, en una versión con temática de apoyo electoral de cara a las próximas elecciones presidenciales en Estados Unidos. Viene presentada además con el siguiente vídeo:

En el tema también se incorporaron elementos estilísticos del icónico video musical ‘Yes We Can’ de will.i.am de 2008, luego aprovechado por la campaña Obama-Biden. En este caso utiliza partes del discurso de aceptación del DNC de Joe Biden pronunciado en agosto de 2020 en la apertura y versos finales de ‘The LOVE’

Con ello, tanto Black Eyed Peas como Jennifer Hudson y otros artistas, se siguen sumando a animar al voto en las elecciones en EE.UU. el próximo 3 noviembre.

‘The LOVE’ incorpora letras e imágenes que abordan la ola actual de muchos problemas sistémicos, incluida la brutalidad policial mortal, violaciones de los derechos civiles, fallas de seguridad pública, luchas ambientales y esfuerzos estancados de reforma migratoria que han dejado a una generación de jóvenes viviendo en el desamparo. Es una crónica de los fracasos que continúan ocurriendo en los Estados Unidos sin control.

Letra de ‘The LOVE’ de Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson

Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson The LOVE

[Intro: Joe Biden & Jennifer Hudson]
Good evening
Ella Baker, a giant of the civil rights movement
Left us with this wisdom
Give people light, and they will find the way
Give people light (Hmm)
Those are words for our time

[Verse 1: Joe Biden & Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Hudson, Joe Biden]
Just a week ago yesterday
It was the third anniversary
Of the events in Charlottesville (Yeah, yeah)
Close your eyes, remember what you saw on the television
Remember seeing those Neo-Nazis
Remember seeing those clansmen, remember
Coming out a field with lighted torches, veins bulging
Spewing the same Anti-semitic bile heard across Europe in the thirties (Hate, hate, hate!)
Remember the violent clash that ensued
Between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it
And remember what the President said when asked?
He said there were quote, “very fine people on both sides”
It was a wake-up call for us as a country (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
And for me a call to action (Uhm-hmm)

[Chorus: Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson]
People killing, people dying
Children hurting, you hear them crying
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?

[Verse 2: will.i.am]
What’s wrong with the world, mama?
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we trying to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin’
In the USA, the KKK
I can’t believe they’re still hating blacks today
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate, then you’re bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how hate works and operates
Man you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love

[Chorus: Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson]
People killing, people dying
Children hurting, you hear them crying
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?

[Post-Chorus: Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Hudson, apl.de.ap]
The love (Lo-Love, oh-oh), the love
Where is the love? The love (x5)
Where is the love? The love (x3)

[Outro: Joe Biden & Jennifer Hudson]
So the question for us is simple: are we ready?
I believe we are, we must be
We can choose a path of becoming angrier, less hopeful, more divided
A path of shadow and suspicion
Or, or we can choose a different path
And together (Ah-ah), take this chance to heal, to reform, to unite (Hmm)
A path of hope and light (Umm-hmm)
This is a life-changing election
This will determine what America is gonna look like for a long, long time (Yes it is)
Character is on the ballot
Compassion is on the ballot (Compassion)
Decency, science, democracy (Yeah)
They’re all on the ballot
Who we are as a nation, what we stand for
And most importantly we want to be
That’s all on the ballot
And the choice could not be more clear
