FILIPA is back and better than ever before with new single ‘Do Something’
Singer-songwriter, FILIPA, is back with the release of her new single, Do Something.
As always, in this track, she is unapologetically honest about what she feels, as she speaks of the confusion one can feel when the other party shows no decision-making intentions about feelings and commitment.
With a catchy slow groove, the song may find you wondering about what really happened.
No stranger to the spotlight, FILIPA experienced worldwide success after winning an international Ryan Seacrest cover song competition for her rendition of One Direction’s ‘Story Of My Life’. The contest catapulted her to instant stardom in South Africa and gave her a global platform to focus on releasing her own original music.
She released her debut single, Chills, on RyanSeacrest.com to rave reviews and later the song Little White Lie, which quickly climbed the iTunes and South African radio charts, landing in the top five on 5FM and the top twenty in Jacaranda FM in 2016.
She started traveling to New York and Los Angeles to work with various accomplished producers and songwriters, most notably, platinum-selling songwriter, Pam Sheyne (best known for Christina Aguilera’s global hit, Genie in a Bottle), who has worked with FILIPA for the past two years and has been instrumental in helping her craft her stories into great pop songs, such as Do Something.
FILIPA hopes to continue captivating SA audiences, while still having her sights on the international market, and particularly the US, where she has released Good Behavior, I’d Rather Be Single and 7th Floor.
FILIPA’s real life experiences are also her musical gift. She has the ability to tell her stories in a real and raw way that is relatable, unashamed and authentic.
What makes her unique is that she pushes herself past pop predictability, crafting her own lane of“transparent pop” that gives her the freedom to speak her mind through her songs.
Driven and determined, she has not only been working hard at her craft, but also at her studies.
This year, she will become a graduate of Harvard University’s Extension School.
