Twenty 4 Seven is the concept/name of Producer, musician, composer and DJ Ruud van Rijen. Ruud started Twenty 4 Seven in 1989. And made his first single "I can't stand it" with Mc Fixx It. This was the start of an international success. Since this version only had rap and a vocoder chorus, Ruud decided to make a commercial Hiphouse version of it. And to make use of female vocals. Ruud discovered and approached Singer Nance at the age of 15 in the Freebird in Asten (NL) where he worked as a resident DJ. With this, Twenty 4 Seven was the first rap act, using female vocals in the chorus. What would later develop into the beginning of the Eurodance.
