Can YOU feel the beat? Let the music play with the biggest superstars of the dancefloor, from great solo artists like Lisa Lisa and Stevie B to ground-breaking girl groups like Exposé, The Cover Girls, Seduction and Sweet Sensation.

With #1 dance smashes like “Two of Hearts” by Stacey Q and “Let the Music Play” by Shannon (perhaps freestyle’s biggest hit ever), Forever Freestyle compiles together the greatest freestyle songs from the 80s and 90s that crossed over from the Latin, dance and R&B charts over to the pop charts resulting in huge national radio and dancefloor hits.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Forever Freestyle could, at the least, use some Debbie Deb and Jenny Burton, and there's involuntary carpetbaggery on the part of Stacey Q, but it's hard to knock a compilation that, as of 2007, makes for the most ideal and widely available introduction to freestyle. Nearly every one of these songs could be heard all day and night on pop-oriented radio stations in cities with concentrated Latino populations, especially New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, cities that also produced the majority of the music. Most of them were released during the latter half of the '80s, with Shannon's 1983 hit "Let the Music Play" setting the rough template: electro's heavily syncopated drum programming, added Latin percussion elements, multiple bold synth patterns, and vocals that are melancholy (no matter how energetic), melodic, and often desperate. Much of the absolute best can be found here, including "Let the Music Play," Company B's "Fascinated," Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force's "I Wonder If I Take You Home," Nice & Wild's "Diamond Girl," and Expos?'s "Point of No Return." Just one of the "Latin explosions" that took place well before the mainstream popularity of Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez, it bleeds into electro, R&B, Italo-disco, house, and hip-house. For a lot of people, freestyle represents a blip in time, but its roots and lasting effects cover three decades. ~ Andy Kellman
