Craig David, early 2000s crooner and he of the 7 Days strategy, has hit number one in the official UK album charts for the first time since 2000. Craig’s comeback album Following My Intuition is his second chart-topping album after his debut Born To Do It, and his first to hit the top 10 since 2005’s The Story Goes.
‘The last Number 1 I had was with Born To Do It 16 years ago so to have another and to share it with so many amazing people – it’s surreal,’ said Craig. ‘I’m seeing two generations connecting – the people who have been with me since 1999 and the crew who are just discovering me, both connecting on the same music, it’s the most amazing feeling,’ he told Official Charts.
‘Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I don’t know what’s going on right now!’
Craig’s comeback was also cemented earlier in September when he garnered nominations for Best Male Act and Best Song nomination for When The Bassline Drops at the upcoming MOBO Awards.
