The Real Roxanne

It took her until 1988 to release an album, by which time the Roxanne fad had run its course; still, the self-titled release packed a wallop thanks to producers Jam Master Jay, Howie Tee, and Full Force, plus the Real Roxanne's own forceful, sassy personality. She attempted a comeback in 1992 with Go Down (But Don't Bite It) without much success.
