So this week I’m reviewing Spades Saratoga’s newest remix video entitled “What U Want”! Having followed this guys success since a little before he featured on Freestyle Friday via 106 & Park, I’m proud to finally have a platform I can show my support on. This video was directed by one of my favorite upcoming directors, @Director_Picaso! So you know I had to see this.
I must say the video is a lot simpler than I expected. In comparison to his music videos for his original songs, I’m glad the quality still exists without a story line. I think that’s what a lot of artists don’t understand. It’s quality over quantity. Even for remix tracks. Stop dropping music videos for everything looking crazy and you don’t always need a story line long as the visual looks good.
I did find it very comical that shorty in the orange twerked the ENTIRE video!! Kudos to you for the energy lol. Make sure you check out the video for yourself and tell us what you thought in the comments below.

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!
