Brooklyn soul maven Johnny Burgos shared the official music video for his new, upbeat pop/soul number “Picture Perfect” yesterday (7.17.2018). Co-produced by Johnny, Ben Lindell (credits include MGMT, 50 Cent, Wale, J Cole, Ryan Leslie, etc.), and Rob Grimaldi (credits include Queen Naija, Alyson Stoner, etc.), the brand new single is now available on all streaming platforms.
“’Picture Perfect’ is about me coming to the realization that ‘real love’ is flawed, and despite what pop culture and society tells us, it’s supposed to be. It’s about acknowledging how dope it is to be 100% down for someone, through the depths of life’s lows and most complicated times, simply because what you feel for that person, makes them worth the sacrifices. To me, that feeling is love.” –Johnny Burgos
Directed by Johnny and shot in one night, on-the-fly by Max Skaff and Jermaine Clark, the video captures the creation process of the song: “I started the production on this one way before I had any lyrics and wrote to the beat in my headphones, while walking through the hood,” says Johnny. “The groove always made me wanna dance.”
“Picture Perfect” serves as the second single from Johnny’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Love Through It All‘, due out later this summer via Roc Nation.
