With their greatest hits from 1993 & 1994: Slave to the music – Is it love – Take me away – Leave them alone
Twenty 4 Seven is a Eurodance and Hip House act, created by Dutch producer Ruud Van Rijen in 1989. Other members of the group were rapper Stacey Paton (Stay-C), and female vocalist Nance Coolen. The combination of male rap and female choruses was the main recipe for their success. The project remained dormant until 1993, when Stay-C (born Stacey Paton) joined the group. He played the role of the rapper as well as an additional role of the co-producer. In the late summer of 1993, Slave to the Music, was launched. It charted well in most European countries, being the first dance record to go platinum in the newly independent Czech Republic. The following singles, Is It Love and Take Me Away, peaked at #5 in Israel. By now, the group were famous worldwide, with the exception of America and the UK. They even played live in South Africa. The single Leave Me Alone included a Greatest Hits Megamix. “Slave To The Music” and “Is It Love” were their only hits in Australia, where both songs reached the Top 5 on the Australian music charts.
Although they were contracted until 1996, the group remained largely silent throughout the next two years. Nance then declared that the group had practically split due to personal issues. In 2000, plans to release a new album in the classical formula, with Stay-C and Nance, were rumoured in the press, but never eventuated.
