Riding high from the success of their recent album Beginning, The Black Eyed Peas have released the video for their second single, “Just Can’t Get Enough” with a very special purpose.
The group hopes that the video, which was shot in Japan over three days just a week before the tragic tsunami rocked the island, will raise awareness and funds for all those in Japan affected by the disaster.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Fergie explains:
It was the easiest video I ever shot because it was us living our lives. I love that it’s showing a true perspective of how it can sometimes be lonely on the road away from our loved ones. It also demonstrates the love and connection we have with Japan. Our heart goes out to all of the Japanese people who have been affected by this natural disaster.”
Black Eyed Peas band member Taboo goes on to say:
It was an amazing moment in time because Japan has always been my favorite place on the planet. It was great to do our video there. God bless the Japanese. Our love goes out to them.”
Pop the hood for a preview…….
The video, will premiere tonight, will also display the message, “This video was filmed in Japan one week before the earthquake. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan. We love you,” and close with a request to donate to the Red Cross. The band will also perform on American Idol the same day the video premieres.
It’s wonderful to see the music community doing something positive with their celebrity status.
Shout out to The Black Eyed Peas and continued love to Japan!
