Honestly this post was completely written on a whim! I was listening to my all-time favourite tracks on my phone recently. By the way, I LOVE music. I can't even begin to explain. So anyway, I was listening, and I got to Craig David's "Rise and Fall" featuring Sting, and I was like, "Where the heck is Craig David!" I even put it on twitter. I am one of those people who get intrigued by the "no-longer-happening-ness" of life. Businesses that fold up, TV shows that get cancelled (not the ones that suck though), singers who are no longer famous, you know, stuff like that make me want to find out why.
So I wondered, maybe I should start a new series on the blog about this-to be honest I will leave that decision to you guys.
But back to Craig David: My goodness. 2000 to 2006 I think? People LOVED that guy. "Fill me in, "Walking Away", "Rendezvous"...people were really feeling him! My fave tracks were "Rise and Fall", "Once In a Lifetime" and "Unbelievable". I think the video for "Unbelievable" is just so sweet, if you are patient enough to watch him walk miles for the most part of the video, just to get his lady who is still snoozing away in bed, some coffee-which is the sweet part of course. :-)

OK so he released an album -"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" in 2010....
But I am not into plagiarism, so here is an excerpt from www.juicymagonline.com,
"David’s debut album, Born To Do It, released in the US in July 2001 and has since went on to sell over 7 million copies, and Slicker Than Your Average, David’s follow up album, has sold over 3 million copies since its 2002 release.
David’s album, The Story Goes…, released in the UK in 2005, and in the United States in 2007,only was well received in the UK. That followed by lack luster American sales and record label changes impacted DAVID’s fourth and fifth projects, Trust Me and Signed Sealed Delivered resulting in a brief musical hiatus.
During his departure from music, David began focusing on leading people to a healthier lifestyle and went on to spread his knowledge through Twitter.
With a new found health consciousness and personal confidence, Craig David is currently gearing up to go on a UK and release a garage inspired album later this year."-Mar, 2013 [source]
So that's the deets on what happened with him. Still doesn't clarify much for me though. But I guess life is all about changes.And he really has been spending a lot of time at the gym!
I like a man who looks built and trim-but this kind is a little bit too much for me! Lol.
Did you ever like Craig David? If you did, what were your fave tracks?
