Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Craig David (vocals); Rickaardo Reid (keyboards, programming); Wayne Lawes (programming); Mark Hill, V. Hallett, F. Zargaroli (background vocals).
  • "Fill Me In" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
  • "7 Days" was nominated for the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
  • Audio Mixer: Mark Hill .
  • Recording information: Battery Studios; STrongroom; The Wharf.
  • The Southampton, England-born singer's US debut is a sultry foray into contemporary R&B, spanning the uptempo album-opening "Fill Me In," the sensuous "Rendezvous," and the pleading "Key to My Heart." Craig David has the sense to combine his pop leanings with his R&B roots, and the result is an irresistible mix of the sensual, the danceable, and the just plain catchy that recalls a millennial version of '80s UK R&B pretender Terence Trent Darby.
  • David's background as a London radio DJ serves him well--the mix of songs is seamless, gliding by as smoothly as a summer boat ride down the River Thames, and his vocal gymnastics are similarly aurally pleasing. Craig David is arguably the latest in a long line of British R&B performers who interpret the form at least as well as, if not better than, their US counterparts.
Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (7/20/01, pp.64-5) - "...It's music to grind to without spilling your Moet....a brilliantly market-tuned fusion of R&B elegance and all-ages pop sugar..." - Rating: B+

Uncut (10/00, p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Smooth-groove soul...he's a sweet, silky seducer of 'special laydeez'....David writes teen-love lyrics of wit and punch..."

CMJ (8/20/01, p.10) - "...It's one of the slickest, sweetest pieces of ear candy you're likely to hear this year..."
