The new will.i.am video celebrating Barack Obama’s victory that was supposed to debut on his website Wednesday – but didn’t – will now make its premiere this afternoon on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” reports the Associated Press.
The Black Eyed Peas leader had said “It’s A New Day” would debut on dipdive.com the day after Obama was elected. A rep for the artist Will.i.am’s now says the Chicago-based talk show will broadcast the clip, with other celebrities on hand. Dipdive.com will then post it later in the day.
Will.i.am became a part of 2008 election lore when he debuted the video “Yes We Can” in February to millions of online views. Several stars including Ryan Phillippe, John Legend, Scarlet Johansson appeared, reciting lines from an Obama speech over will.i.am’s music.
