JackEL’s remix of Jenna Jay’s “Someone Real” brings a new energy to a song about heartbreak.  It’s an upbeat, danceable version of Jay’s original, more somber song. 

While Jay sings about making a change, DJ JackEL does just that with the music, giving it more of an uplifting vibe.  The track focuses on looking for something new after experiencing a bad relationship.  Jay wrote the song after being deceived by her ex.  Her vocals naturally connect to the lyrics and emote the desire to move on.  She wrote on her Facebook page about the cathartic experience she had while creating “Someone Real:”

Its about wanting someone real and genuine for once. I think alot of us can relate to people putting on a fake mask and pretending to be something they’re not to get what they want. I wrote it about my ex after going through lies and betrayal. I thought I knew who he was, but I didn’t. And that shattered me. This song helped me to get through and I hope it helps others as well.

Adding the beat to the serious lyrics gives the song a sense of relief from the toll that the relationship took.  With JackEL’s beat and Jay’s lyrics and vocals, the song can please a variety of listeners.
