"Real Love" is a song by American singer Jody Watley from her second studio album Larger Than Life (1989). "Real Love" became one of the biggest pop and R&B singles of 1989.

History

The single reached the number-one spots of the US Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart and Dance Club Play chart. On the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, "Real Love" rocketed into the Top 40 from #51 to #37, the week of April 1, 1989. The single lingered in the Top 10 for six weeks, peaking at #2 for two of those weeks, on May 20 and 27, 1989, during which it was the final peak position before Paula Abdul's "Forever Your Girl".

During the summer of 1989, Watley's "Real Love" video, directed by David Fincher, was nominated for six MTV Video Music Awards including Breakthrough Video, Best Art Direction, Best Dance Video, and Best Female Video at the 1989 award show. That record was held until Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson's video "Scream" received eleven VMA nominations in 1995. The song was also nominated for a Soul Train Music Award for Best Female Single. The music video premiered in March 1989 on Cable television networks.
