It's been a little over a year since Anthony Hamilton released his latest album Love Is The New Black, and if you thought he was done promoting it, you thought wrong. After taking some time away from the project to join Eric Roberson on the star-studded remix to "Lessons" alongside Raheem DeVaughn and Kevin Ross and duet with American Idol alumna LaToya London on her single "On Everything," AHam revisits the album with a music video for the Rick Ross-featuring, 9th Wonder-produced cut "Real Love."

Director Timmy Shawley's camera follows Hamilton as he rides around town in a classic whip. While he's behind the wheel lost in song, life goes on around him and we're introduced to a young boy.

We watch as he skips down the street with his toy airplane and goes to the barbershop to get a fresh cut, and, lo and behold, Anthony is his barber (in a bit of art imitating life). We then see the boy as a young teen meeting up with a girl and going for a bike ride through the park. At the same park, the boy grows into a man who is now in a couple and on a fun date. They frolic and have a play shootout with bubble guns before falling out together in the grass and staring at the sky as an airplane flies by.

Ricky Rozay isn't present in physical form, but his bars soundtrack the pivotal moment in the visual when the teens exit the screen and the young lovers enter the frame. The camera pans out to show Anthony looking on while seated on a park bench. In other scenes, we also spot AHam on a date with a real love of his own and serenading her over champagne.

Anthony calls "Real Love" one of his favorite songs on Love Is The New Black, and it's easy to see why. The head nod-inducing Ahmad Jamal "Swahililand" sample employed by 9th Wonder is the bow on top of this musical gift.
