Clean Bandit teamed up again with Jess Glynne for this song. The London songstress previous sung on the Baroque-pop group's international hit "Rather Be
," which topped the iTunes charts in over 25 countries worldwide. "It's weird, because after 'Rather Be,' I didn't think we'd do another song," Glynne told USA Today
. "But I kind of started 'Real Love' and was going to have it for me, and it turned out we decided to do it as a joint single."
"I think with 'Rather Be,' it worked so well the way the music and the vocal and everything came together," she added, "and with 'Real Love,' it was the same thing."
