South African Pop Artist Filipa Debuts Official Music Video For “I’d Rather Be Single”

“When writing this song, I wanted to bring across the message that it’s okay to be single rather than be in a relationship where you’re unhappy and not being respected. A lot of people stay in relationships in hopes of the other person changing, or finally being the type of person they deserve, which starts to become taxing on their own happiness and leads to more tension and heartbreak down the line. I think knowing your worth and respecting yourself first is the key to being happy in and out of a relationship. This song was my own personal way of expressing my own frustrations and emotions and I hope that it empowers others to face their own and stay true to their gut above all.”
