The star-studded video of 'It's a New Day', will.i.am's single that was released in celebration of Barack Obama's victory.
After giving the first taste of his "It's a New Day" video on "The Oprah Winfrey Show", will.i.am releases the full music video via Dipdive. Directed by Ben Mor, the video presents also the Black Eyed Peas member's celebrity friends such as bandmate Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie, Kanye West, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Jonathan Schaech among others.
"It's a New Day" is will.i.am's third pro-Barack Obama song that was made immediately after the Democratic leader's win on the November 4 election. Since it's a political-charged one, the video also contains flashes of notable politic figures such as Obama on election night, Abraham Lincoln and Harriet Tubman. There's also the footage when he was interviewed by CNN and appeared as hologram from Chicago's Grant Park where he described the scene at Obama's coronation.
Before "It's a New Day", will.i.am released "Yes We Can" when Obama was still campaigning. For the video, he gathered his celebrity friends such as Scarlett Johansson, John Legend and Nicole Scherzinger. The second one was "We Are the Ones" that was jacked up to encourage youths to cast their votes, which also had a star studded video.
