No. Those productions by Full Force are really R&B/pop, not freestyle. I don’t even consider the tracks they did with Lisa Lisa freestyle, although some people do. They were massive records that were more R&B flavored and even though Lisa Lisa is Latina that doesn’t make themBut Naughty Girl from Samantha Fox and Full Force has a freestyle sound , right ?
Freestyle. The sound of the music is what makes a track freestyle, and freestyle (especially NY freestyle) had a very specific dark, underground sound. Not all of it made it to radio, and most never became the kind of global hits like the Full Force tracks did. Gloria Estefan is Latina too, and her music isn’t freestyle. Brenda K. Starr did have some freestyle tracks in the beginning, like “Picking Up Pieces”, but her sound quickly went to mainstream dance/pop.
