Welcome to “New Music Mondays”! This is LyveLyfeRadio.com’s first recurring segment where Dyme and DJ Blaq Bully will be reviewing underground & independent artists music videos. Doing this one a little late at night but better late than never right?…
Icmg/2 Deep recording artist JR JustReal released a video mid-January to his single “Invisible”. This video was directed by Tony Picaso and produced by Ppmg Hitmand. I’ve seen him around performing at numerous music events around New York City and have become a fan of his sound. So I was definitely excited when I saw JR’s submission for our review. Not only is the artist good, but I’m also a big supporter of the video director (Painted by Picaso) so I already pre-judged the visuals before I watched it, lol.
The basis is a heartfelt song of how he feels invisible to his girlfriend and plans to leave her because she doesn’t give him attention. It gives me an early 2000s RnB feel, think Bobby Valentino or Sammie. It starts with JR and his “girlfriend” having a disagreement about her going out with her friends rather than spending time with him when he returns from the studio. She mentions that doing music doesn’t bring home a check. Rude! Then the video is mainly scenes of her on her phone when they are together in the room, her getting cozy with a guy in the hallway, and of JR outside singing his heart out. The video is actually very simple, not too much content, not too many scenes and very easy to digest as the viewer.
What would I change about it? Don’t really think I’d change anything. I think the song is cute. I’m very easily attracted to bright colors and chaotic scenes but this is one of those chill joints you play when you’re breaking up with your boo because they messed up! So it doesn’t call for much more than presented.
Random: So I don’t know if you all caught this but the curtain in the room says Goodnight! Comment below if you saw it!
This is the first single from his LP titled “Reality Check”. Follow @_IamJust_Real on Instagram and Twitter. You can check out the video below. Make sure you tell us your thoughts in the comments section:

Check out the newly released video of our exclusive interview with Harlem bred entertainer, Jaquae!! He came by our studio to talk about some new releases as well as what got him where he is now. Very popular for tracks like “Big Booty Judy” and “My Pieces Hittin'”, this NYC native started his entertainment career as a street dancer for the popular dance crew “Hood Presidents”.
