London, March 16 (ANI): American hip hop band Black Eyed Peas have dedicated their latest music video ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ to tsunami victims in Japan.

The band themselves narrowly missed becoming embroiled in the disaster during the shoot, reports the Daily Star.

The pop stars filmed the promo for the new single in Tokyo a week before Friday’s 9.0-magnitude earthquake triggered a massive tidal wave, which hit Japan’s east coast and swept inland killing thousands of residents.

The band, fronted by Will.i.am and Fergie, jetted out of Japan just days before the disaster struck.

Now they have added a special message to the video, urging fans to donate to the ongoing relief efforts.

The promo opens with the message, “This video was filmed in Japan one week before the earthquake. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan. We love you.”

And the video closes with a link to the Red Cross. (ANI)
