Place 54 (pronunciation: PLAHS cen-KAHNT KAHTR as it is a French-language title) is the third studio album by Nantes-based rap group Hocus Pocus, released in 2007.[1] The album title refers to a seat in a passenger train car.

Some of the tracks feature other artists such as Malik Mezzadri ("Quitte á t'aimer"), Omar ("Smile"), Fred Wesley and Stro the 89th Key ("Recyclé"), T-Love & The Procussions ("Vocab!"), Dalja and C2C ("Move On"), Elodie Rama and Tribeqa ("Touriste"), and Taïriq Keda, who produced "Je la Soul". The track "Quitte á t'aimer" is a re-recording of a song from Cesária Évora, a Cape Verdean artist, from her 1995 album Cesária.

Translations of song titles include "Quitte á t'aimer" (At the risk of loving you), "Recyclé" (recycled), "Tournée" (tour), "Touriste" (tourist), "Histoire d'une VHS" (story of a VHS tape), and "Voyage immobile" (unmoving trip).
