The Scott Storch-produced record finds Kel wanting to connect on a deeper level with his significant other (“I promise that I won’t hurt you/And baby I won’t break your heart/And girl I know you’re hurtin’ too/So baby let me heal your scars”), with the video featuring shots of the singer and his girl.
“I think a lot of people can relate to that in between of being so in love with a person and not knowing if they’re as invested as you as you are in them. It’s something I’ve had some first-hand experience with,” Luh Kel explained. “Working on ‘Real’ with someone like Scott Storch was pretty unreal. I worked with him while I was in L.A. and had a lot of fun with it—both recording the song and shooting the video.”
