Initially to be Queen's debut full-length English-language studio album, it featured collaborations with hip hop and fellow reggaetón artists Hector El Father, Fat Joe, Getto & Gastam, La India, Gran Omar and Mickey Perfecto. The album was primarily produced by Rafi Mercenario, and included guest production by American producer Swizz Beatz, Puerto Rican producers Ecko, Noriega, Monserrate and DJ Nelson. The executive producers were Goguito "Willy" Guadalupe, Gran Omar and Queen.
Real is Queen's only record with a Parental Advisory label. The album departs from the lyrical content characterizing Queen's musical style, detailing hood life in Puerto Rico and love. It alternates musically between reggaetón and hip hop, experimenting with electronica, funk, dancehall, pop, R&B, and acoustic ballads. The wide range of styles and musical exploration earned Real mainly positive reviews from critics. Many praised Queen's raspy vocals and production quality, whilst others criticized the lack of instrumentation.
Spawning three singles (" Chika Ideal", " Rociarlos" and " Dile"), Real peaked at number twenty-five on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart, number four on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart and number six on the Billboard Tropical Albums chart.

Several other tracks, including "Tócame" and "Baila Así", received airplay on Anglophone and Hispanophone radio stations in the United States.
Real is regarded as a factor in 2004's reggaetón exposure to mainstream English-speaking markets, along with Queen's previous album (her 2003 studio recording, Diva) and albums by Daddy Yankee and Tego Calderón. It became one of the best-selling albums of 2005 (along with her fifth studio album, Flashback), with sales of both going "through the roof". Queen then embarked on concert tours of Latin America and the United States; she also promoted the album with a network television-news segment detailing her career and struggle for respect in reggaetón, performing "Chika Ideal" on Don Francisco Presenta. The album was re-released on September 25, 2007 by Machete Music, but failed to impact the charts.

During the time of Sharq al-Andalus a real (from the ArabicRiyad) was a kind of orchard or garden, with some kind of building as summer residence that used to belong to a member of Andalusian urban oligarchy, located around the cities or large farmhouses.
In this sense, in other areas of Al-Andalus it is also used the word Almunia. An example would be Real Palace of Valencia, although the term '' Real '' continues within the Catalan to Arabism, present in many place names like Secar de la Real in Palma de Mallorca, the Montroy and Real de Gandia, or the same Pla del Real in Valencia. It is very common to confuse etymology with a derivative of royal or relating to the king, which is more explicit in the case of the Real Palace as it was royal residence.

early 14c., "actually existing, true;" mid-15c., "relating to things" (especially property), from Old French reel "real, actual," from Late Latin realis "actual," in Medieval Latin "belonging to the thing itself," from Latin res "matter, thing," of uncertain origin. Meaning "genuine" is recorded from 1550s; sense of "unaffected, no-nonsense" is from 1847.\n\nGenerally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.

Especially in reference to the real de plata, which circulated in the U.S. till c.1850 and in Mexico until 1897.

[Bartlett, "Dictionary of Americanisms," 1848]\nHe adds that, due to different exchange rates of metal to paper money in the different states, the Spanish money had varying names from place to place.
