Elina Filice has released a powerful spoken word cover of the track “First World Problems,” which was originally released by Chance the Rapper back in 2017. Filice takes the cover in an innovative way to reinvent “First World Problems.”
Filice explains “While keeping the thoughtful hook, I re-wrote all of the verses in the original spoken word style. Flowing between the very personal and the very broad, I speak candidly about my journey, pursuing a creative life, as well as larger social issues.”
“First World Problems” was recorded and produced by Kevin Brennan of Dublin’s Wavefarm Productions. Filice has also released the accompanying music video. Check out “First World Problems” right here.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
