Big Time Rush Wiki

24/Seven[1] is the third studio album by American boy band Big Time Rush. The production process of the album started shortly after the release of the group's second album, Elevate and finished around March–April 2013. Most of which was during their touring process. The band is also finishing the filming of the fourth season of the series. The album is preceded by the promotional single "Like Nobody's Around" which saw its premiere on VEVO during the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards.

The album will act as the soundtrack to the Nickelodeon television series Big Time Rush, which will feature songs that appear in the series’ upcoming fourth season. Motivated from songwriting that took place on the previous album Elevate the group became heavily involved in the songwriting process for the album. Kendall Schmidt confirmed that the group had recorded 40 - 50 new songs for the album a majority of which were written by Big Time Rush.

On the 2013 MTV Movie Awards Carlos announced that the album will be released somewhere in June 2013. The album will be available for pre-order on April 30, 2013.[2] The track list and the album release date (June 11, 2013) were revealed on April 29, 2013, on EW while the cover photo was revealed on Cambio.

According to the Billboard Website 24/Seven has sold around 35,000 copies and will debut #4 on the billboard top 200.[3]


The name of the album was revealed between hints from the guys in interviews and in their own tweets which gave rise to many rumors stating that the album is going to be called "24/Seven". The guys officially announced the name of the album on April 15, 2013, on Cambio's Live Chat.[4][5]

Two songs have hit the internet (She Drives and Words Mean Nothing) in the past couple of months creating a lot of talk about the possible release of a 2012 album. Adding to the anticipating the ASCAP (American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers) added “Blink” to BTR’s profile this week. The song was originally recorded by UK duo, UVUK. None of the songs have been confirmed for the 3rd album. This is all speculation, but it doesn’t hurt to get a little excited!"
