Just one week before the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Fergie and her Black Eyed Peas crew were busy in Tokyo filming the video for their latest hit, “Just Can’t Get Enough.”
The Ben Mor directed video shows off the bright lights of Tokyo’s nightlife, Fergie writhing around in some menswear and Will.i.am looking out the window of a cab.
“It was the easiest video I ever shot because it was us living our lives,” Fergie says. “I love that it’s showing a true perspective of how it can sometimes be lonely on the road away from our loved ones.”
Continuing, “It also demonstrates the love and connection we have with Japan. Our heart goes out to all the Japanese people who have been affected by this natural disaster.”
Taboo also weighs in on the tragedy, saying “It was an amazing moment in time because Japan has always been my favorite place on the planet and it was great to do our video there! God bless the Japanese, our love goes out to them.”
The band will appear on Thursday’s (Mar. 17) “American Idol” results show to sing the song for the very first time.
Check out the video below. We find it just a little bit eerie thinking about the natural disaster that was just looming around the corner… What do you think?
