Songfacts®:

  • This song captures the emotion of what it feels like to be part of the young generation who helped move President Barack Obama into the White House. Many were inspired by Black Eyed Pea Will.i.am's "Yes We Can" video. Will.i.am explained to Billboard magazine: "This is the first time in history where we have a powerful new youth generation connected by technology, not by religion or government. So they want things now."
