“Where Is the Love?” is the first single from the Black Eyed Peas’ third album, Elephunk, released in 2003. It was the first single to feature the new member, Fergie. The single peaked at #8 in the USA, becoming The Black Eyed Peas’ first Top 10 hit; the single also peaked at #1 in Australia and the UK. The single is most known as the band’s breakthrough single.

Although the song was one of the biggest worldwide hits of 2003, it almost did not happen. Following the commercial failures of their previous albums and singles, there was doubt over whether the Black Eyed Peas would continue to record together. A&R executive Ron Fair approached them and suggested a crossover to a more mainstream pop sound. will.i.am in particular resisted the idea for fear that they would be seen as sellouts. However, after discussions and some writing sessions the idea was pursued.
