Better Off Alone by Alice Deejay (Universal, 1999)

In 1999 in Amsterdam, a Eurodance group, Alice Deejay was formed. In July 1999, they released their debut single Better Off Alone. It hit the top ten in the Netherlands, Australia, France, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Its best position was in the UK where it peaked at #2 and was certified Platinum. In the U.S., it only peaked at #27.

A follow up single Back in My Life still did relatively well in Europe — peaking at #1 on Norway, but did not eclipse the success of Better Off Alone overall. Back in My Life failed to chart in the U.S.

The other three singles off their debut (and only) album continued to fare less and less well — though all five singles were top 20 UK hits. In 2002, Alice Deejay officially called it quits.
