Now or Never is the second studio album released by British ten-piece hip hop group Blazin' Squad. The album was released on 20 November 2003 in the United Kingdom, and peaked at #37 on the UK Albums Chart. The album spawned the singles "We Just Be Dreamin'", "Flip Reverse" and "Here 4 One". It features the rap version of "We Just Be Dreamin'", running at 3:28, instead of the vocal version, running at 3:37. The album cover was photographed in Queensborough, on the Isle of Sheppy.[1] Following the album's commercial failure, the band split in 2004, and Now or Never became their last record to be released as a ten-piece band.
