"This Is Not Real Love" is the second single from George Michael's second greatest hits album Twenty Five. The single features Mutya Buena, the ex-Sugababe and was released on 6 November 2006. Due to the busy work schedules of both Michael and Buena, a video was made; however, it featured actors and scenes of the singers in the studio. The song was also featured in a remixed form on Mutya Buena's solo debut album, Real Girl. The song peaked in 2006 at number fifteen in the United Kingdom. On 25 March 2008, it was released in the United States and reached number eight on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart.
