Will.i.am has organised a new project in response to the United States' crisis over its recent issues around police brutality and shootings.

In a We Are The World-type move, the project will involve rapper Snoop Dogg - who has already been vocal on the issue - and several other artists who are yet to be named.

The song will be a remix of the Black Eyed Peas' huge 2003 hit, Where Is the Love?

The song was a commentary on war, poverty, racism and media, with a chorus which said: "People killing, people dying. Children hurt and you hear them crying, can you practice what you preach, or would you turn the other cheek?"

According to TMZ, Will.i.am decided now was the perfect time for the project following police shootings in Baton Rouge, Minnesota, Dallas and other cities in recent weeks.

There are no details yet on when the song will release, but until it does, you can relive Where is the Love? in all its glory below:
