Craig David has had some amazing songs in his time! Since we featured his latest track ‘One More Time‘ earlier this week, it seemed like a good idea to revisit some of his older songs for #ThrowbackThursday, coz man has the guy had some hits!
‘7 Days’ was released 16 years ago, back in 2000, and was taken from his debut album ‘Born To Do It’ and it reached Number 1 in the UK charts…that’s because it’s awesome! A true R&B song which shows off David’ vocal abilities well, this song was destined for success, with a modest video too!

It was then in 2002 that Craig David released the first single from his follow-up album, ‘What’s Your Flava?’ Many people might have found the lyrics a little cringy; comparing girls to ice cream flavours, but the song is catchy as hell!
It went on to reach Number 8 in the UK charts and saw him add a touch of dance to his R&B sound.

Then in 2003, Craig David released his second song from the album Slicker Than Your Average, called ‘Hidden Agenda’.
Although this song reached Number 10 in the UK charts (not as good as his previous releases), I have chosen to feature this as the third song, because I feel it was a bit of a hidden gem. It’s much less obviously catchy than his other singles but is one of my favourite songs of his.
Whilst the song still remains R&B at heart, its use of guitar is calming and unique and really captivates me every time I hear it. It also saw Craig David team up with previous collaborator and Artful Dodger producer, Mark Hill.
It was then in 2010 that Craig David appeared to take a break from music, but thankfully, he’s back and 2016 looks set to be an awesome year for him!
