Dyo – “Real (2020)” music video
“Don’t you know that you gotta look like that. Better post pictures on your Instagram. Better look like you’ve been living life. Even if that sh*t ain’t in your life.” – lyrics
‘Real (2020)’ encourages listeners to live an honest life in 2020 instead of faking certain aspects of their reality via social media. The sincere tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and rich harmonies. Also, “Real (2020)” possesses rhythmic instrumentation scented with a warm afro-pop aroma.
“‘Real (2020)’ is about being honest with yourself and not living your life through other people’s lens.” – Dyo
Not too long ago, Dyo was nominated for an Ivor Novello award. So far, she has collaborated with a broad range of internationally renowned names including Maroon 5, SZA, Fifth Harmony, and Jacob Banks. Also, she has penned chart-topping tunes for homegrown icons Wiley and Chip.
‘Real (2020)’ is featured on Dyo’s debut EP, entitled, “Dyologue”.
“I wanted to put my best foot forward and make good music that people will hopefully enjoy and connect with.” – Dyo
‘Dyologue’ is the first chapter in the East Londoner’s career as a solo artist and chronicles her thoughts through song. The six-track project features previously released singles including “Papaya” featuring Lord Afrixana, “Go All The Way” featuring Mr Eazi, “Can’t Buy My Love”, and “Arena”.
