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

I was checking this girl next door
When her parents went out she'd phone
Say 'hey boy, come on right around'
So I knock at the door, you were standing
With a bottle of red wine, ready to pour
Dressed in long black satin and lace to the floor
So I went in, then we sat down, start kissing, caressing
Told be 'bout Jacuzzi, sounded interesting so we jumped right in
All calls diverted to answer phone
Please leave a message after the tone

I mean me and her parents were kind of cool
But they were the fine line between me and you
We were just doing things young people in love do
Parents trying to find out what we were up to
Saying why were you creeping 'round late last night
Why did I see two shadows moving in your bedroom light
Now you're dressed in black, when I left you were dressed in white
Can you fill me in
Calls diverted to answer phone, red wine bottle half the contents gone
Midnight return, Jacuzzi turned on
Can you fill me in

Whenever the coast was clear and she'd ask me to come out
I'd say 'hey girl, come on right around'
So she knocked at the door, I was standing
With the keys in my hand to the 4x4, jumped in my ride
Checking that nobody saw
The club we went in, we got down bounce, bounce to the rhythm
Saw it was early morning, thought we'd better be leaving
So I gave you my jacket for you to hold
Told you to wear it 'cos you felt cold

I mean me and her didn't mean to break the rules
I weren't trying to play your mum and dad for fools
We were just doing things young people in love do
Parents trying to find out what we were up to
Saying why can't you keep your promises no more
Saying you'll be home by 12, come strolling in at 4
Out with the girls, but leaving with the boy next door
Can you fill me in
Wearing a jacket who's property, said you'd been queuing for a Taxi
But you left all your money on the TV
Can you fill me in

All they seem to do, is be checking up on you, baby
Watching your every move
Think some day, they might approve, baby..........

Why were you creeping 'round late last night
Why did I see two shadows moving in your bedroom light
Now you're dressed in black, when I left you were dressed in white
Can you fill me in
Calls diverted to answer phone, red wine bottle half the contents gone
Midnight return, Jacuzzi turned on
Can you fill me in
