Will.I.Am Debuts ‘It’s A New Day’: Follow Up to ‘Yes We Can’ Video

After last night’s historic and remarkably “pain-free” election, R&B/pop star Will.I.Am is set to unveil the follow up to his hit viral video “Yes We Can.” Titled “It’s A New Day,” the Black Eyed Peas star once again enlists several celebrities who sent in their video testimonials as the results came down on Tuesday. “This was inspired by America. It’s about Obama winning, and really paying tribute to those people who are responsible for that happening, and that’s the American people,” the Black Eyed Peas leader said Tuesday night. “The whole thing is really for people to leave testimonials … to create a page and leave testimonials on how they feel about this American accomplishment.” Will.i.am was an early backer of Obama’s candidacy, and his video “Yes We Can” — which featured celebrities such as Ryan Phillippe, John Legend, Scarlet Johansson and others giving vocalizations to an Obama speech over will.i.am’s music — was a viral hit when it debuted in February, getting millions of views online. “It’s A New Day” will premiere later today.
