"Real Love" is a song by English singer-songwriter Lee Ryan from his debut solo album, Lee Ryan (2005). It was released as the fourth and final single from the album in 2006. The song was originally produced by Cutfather & Joe, Ash Howes, Martin Harrington, and Remee, and it was remixed by Brian Rawling and Paul Meehan for its single release. "Real Love" was not released in Ryan's native United Kingdom, due to the lack of sales for Ryan's previous singles. The track received attention for its use as the lead single for the film Ice Age: The Meltdown. The song peaked at #57 in Italy and #72 in Switzerland.[1]

In 2008, the song was covered by Katharine McPhee and Elliott Yamin for Randy Jackson's debut album Randy Jackson's Music Club, Vol. 1. The song was released on April 21, 2008 and served as the second single from the album. According to USA Today, the song has sold 8,000 copies as of June 2008.[2]
