Seduction was a female dance music trio from New York assembled and produced by David Cole & Robert Clivillés (later of C+C Music Factory fame), consisting of members April Harris, Michelle, and Idalis DeLeon.
Originally intended as a studio project, and prior to any assemblage of the aforementioned trio, the first track produced, "Seduction" (later renamed "Seduction's Theme"), featured vocals by Carol Cooper, and was released to dance clubs. Against its producers' expectations, it ended up becoming a hit. Envisioning a potential hit phenomenon, Cole and Clivillés set to the task of assembling a group of girls who displayed talent, sex appeal, and multiformat potential. Visage, DeLeon and Harris were chosen and assembled for the recording of the album Nothing Matters Without Love and subsequent singles. Their biggest hit came in early 1990 with "Two to Make It Right", a No. 2 pop hit. In mid-1990 DeLeon left the group and was replaced by Sinoa Loren. After a pair of hits with this line-up, the group disbanded in 1991.
Heartbeat was originally recorded in 1981 by Taana Gardner. It was arranged by Dennis Weeden and Kenton Nix, and released by West End Records, with the more famous club mix created by Larry Levan. It reached US Billboard R&B at no.10, US Billboard Dance charts at no.6.
In 1990, Seduction recorded the song which peaked at number two on the dance charts. This version also peaked at no.21 on the soul chart and number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100.
