Style is the sixth track on the third disc of Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third album to be credited to SymbolSmallerBlue.png.

While exact recording dates are not known, it is likely that initial tracking took place in March 1996, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions where Scrap D. recorded raps for I Rock, Therefore I Am, Mr. Happy and Da, Da, Da). The song contains a sample of Atomic Dog performed by George Clinton (written by Garry Marshall Shider, David Lee Spradley and George Clinton Jr.).
