Craig David begint zijn muzikale loopbaan als hij meewerkt aan een single van Damage, waarna Artful Dodger hem vraagt om vocalen te leveren. Hoewel hij geen vermelding krijgt op Re-Rewind The Crowd Say Bo Selecta wordt het in 2000 wel een top 4-hit in ons land. Later dat jaar wordt Fill Me In zijn solo-debuut dat op nummer 5 weet te komen. Van zijn debuutalbum Born To Do It worden ook 7 Days en Walking Away top 10-hits.


In 2002 verschijnt zijn tweede album Slicker Than Your Average, waarvan de eerste twee singles What’s Your Flava? en Hidden Agenda minder succesvol worden. Ook Rise & Fall, een samenwerking met Sting, komt van dat album en groeit in ons land uit tot zijn grootste succes. Pas met zijn vierde album, Trust Me, scoort David in 2007 weer een Top 40-hit via Hot Stuff (Let’s Dance), hoewel dat nummer na twee weken weer verdwijnt uit de lijst.

In 2016 levert hij verschillende samenwerkingen af met Blonde, Katy B, Major Lazer en Big Narstie Ook werkt hij samen met Hardwell op de track No Holding Back, dat blijft steken in de Tipparade. Op 30 september verschijnt zijn zesde studioalbum Following My Intuition. Daarvan is Ain't Giving Up, zijn samenwerking met Sigala, de openingstrack.




Songtekst

You know what?
Got something to say
Craig David
7 days
Check it out

On my way to see my friends
Who lived a couple blocks away from me (oh)
As I walked through the subway
Must have been about a quarter past three
In front of me stood a beautiful honey with a beautiful body
She asked me for the time
I said, it'd cost her name
A six digit number and a date with me tomorrow at nine

Did she decline? No
Didn't she mind? I don't think so
Was it for real? Damn sure
What was the deal? A pretty girl aged twenty-four
So was she keen? She couldn't wait
Cinnamon queen? Let me update
What did she say? She said she'd love to rendezvous
She asked me what we were gonna do
Said, we'd start with a bottle of Moet for two

[chorus]
Monday
Took her for a drink on Tuesday
We were making love by Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
We chilled on Sunday
I met this girl on Monday
Took her for a drink on Tuesday
We were making love by Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
We chilled on Sunday

Nine was the time
Cause I'll be getting mine
And she was looking fine
Smooth talker
She told me
She'd love to unfold me all night long
Ooh, I loved the way she kicked it
From the front to back she flipped it
(back she flipped it, ooh the way she kicked)
And I oh, oh I yeah
Hope that she'd care
Cause I'm a man who'll always be there

Ooh yeah
I'm not a man to play around, baby
Ooh yeah
Cause a one night stand isn't really fair
From the first impression, girl hmm, you don't seem to be like that
Cause there's no need to chat, for there'll be plenty time for that
From the subway to my home
Endless ringing of my phone
When you're feeling all alone
All you gotta do is just call me call me

[chorus]
Monday
Took her for a drink on Tuesday
We were making love by Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
We chilled on Sunday
I met this girl on Monday
Took her for a drink on Tuesday
We were making love by Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
We chilled on Sunday

(Break it down, break it down)
Since I met this special lady
Ooh yeah
I can't get her off my mind
She's one of a kind
And I ain't about to deny it
It's a special kind of thing
With you, oh

[chorus]
Monday
Took her for a drink on Tuesday
We were making love by Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
We chilled on Sunday
I met this girl on Monday
Took her for a drink on Tuesday
We were making love by Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday
We chilled on Sunday, Sunday Sunday Sunday...
