Product Description

Product Description

Still only 26 years old, Craig David has earned a reputation as one of the UK's foremost talents, as well as one of the nation's most successful musical exports. He's now poised to return with a new album `Trust Me' on November 12th, already being heralded as his finest since the 2000 debut set `Born To Do It'.

`Trust Me' will be previewed by the release of the single `Hot Stuff (Let's Dance)', which combines Craig David's inimitable vocal gift with irresistible funk-infused beats and a sample of David Bowie's classic track `Let's Dance'.

Recorded in Havana, Cuba with producer Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, James Morrison) and writer/producer/mixer Fraser T. Smith (Craig David, Kano, Beyonce, Plan B, Jamelia), the track `6 of 1 Thing' emphasises how Cuban musical culture influenced his new work, whilst the ballad `Awkward' (highlighting guest vocals from a female west London star-to-be) features some of his most evocative lyrics to date. Other highlights include the infectious hook and insistent rhythms of the title track, and `She's On Fire' which combines sublime bass with Craig's fluid lyrical flow.

Since becoming a global phenomenon with `Born To Do It', Craig David has become a huge UK superstar with two #1 singles (`Fill Me In' and `7 Days') and a further ten appearances in the Top 10. All three of his albums have been chart hits: `Born To Do It' (#1), 2002's `Slicker Than Your Average' (#4) and 2005's `The Story Goes...' (#5).

A multiple-award winner who has earned three Ivor Novello Awards (including Songwriter of the Year and Best Contemporary Song), four MOBOs (one of which was for Best UK Act) and two MTV Europe Awards, Craig David has worked with a talented array of artists including Sting and Artful Dodger's Mark Hill and Pete Devereux. Craig David also recently featured on Kano's Top 20 single `This is The Girl'.

BBC Review

Upon picking up the physical copy of the appallingly-titled, Trust Me, you immediately realise there's something different about Craig David. He's beefed up, lost that goatee and that hat and opted for a sharper suit. Frankly, he's back and he looks the business.

Like a DJ dropping a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, Trust Me opens up with the floor-filling "Hot Stuff". David Bowie's "Let's Dance" has been tinkered with before, but this is its most ear-catching interpretation for sometime, proving that Craig is matching up his sharp image with an equally incisive sound.

The big band pop feel of "6 Of 1 Thing" and "Friday Night" continue to warm you up nicely before the album launches into its soft centre. "Officiallly Yours" is an cheesy instant chart pleaser while "Just A Reminder" possesses a breezy calypso feel, no doubt a flavour of studio time spent in Cuba. "Kinda Girl For Me" - feauturing a motown hook from The Stylistics' "You Are Everything" - also deserves plaudits; if only for the lyric: 'She's so sick like a dope melody/ sitting nicely on top of the beat'. Make no mistake ladies, Craig's still got it going on.

Right on cue, Craig then builds towards a decent finale. The reggae-hip hop mash-up of "She's On Fire" demonstrates his ever-dextrous vocal ability, while his collaboration with Kano on "This Is The Girl" is clean UK hip hop fun, even though its role as the record's final track is confusing.

This album wouldn't be complete without a paragraph dedicated to the hugely impressive "Awkward". With a classic soul feel that hark backs to the Temptations era, slow-pop doesn't come much better. Featuring the dazzling vocal talents of Rita Ora, a 17-year-old discovered by the album's producer Martin Terefe, "Awkward" is evocative and tender in a way that those familiar with Craig's garage days, wouldn't know existed.

The key to Trust Me's immediate appeal lies in the charming powers of David, who uses all eleven tracks to pull you in like a man possessed. It's as if he's on the last date of his life, and he's not going to let this one go awry. 26 years-old and 13 million worldwide sales under his belt, Craig has matured into the real deal for a flagging UK R 'n' B scene. With an album that's a cert to be lavished with awards come 2008, it seems like Craig really was born to do it after all. --Tom Young

Craig David will always have to go some way to beat the brilliant debut of Born To Do It, however with Trust Me he has come very, very close.

The album starts with current single 'Hot Stuff' which admittedly I hated upon first listen, is catchy, vibrant, R&B/Pop crossover. Craig's smooth vocals on the frenetic beat, laced with the 80's style and panache.

Next up comes '6 of 1 Thing', a phrase known to many British citizen no doubt, sums up women with precision one minute here, then they are there, telling you six of one thing, then half a dozen of another. The vibrant brass adds to the tempo of this track, giving it a welcome kick, while Craig clicks along nicely with casually bouncy vocals.

How many of us have been stuck at home on a 'Friday Night' waiting for something to happen, noone out, you're hyped, want to hit the club. Wrong side of ten noone picking up the phone. A smoother beat to this track, with Craig asking what's going on, painting a vivid picture of being stuck watching Have I Got News For You.

'Awkward' situations are something we all find ourselves in from time to time, whether it be the awkward silences in conversation or awkward meetings with an old flame. On this track Craig realises he may have made a mistake letting his girl go when he see's her with a ring on her finger, gone from the shelf. This track is very soulful, and definately not something you'd associate with Craig, but I think that is typical of this album. It's new it's fresh, and Craig is all the better for it. 16 year old Rita Ora features, with sultry vocals she will go far.

'Just A Reminder' is truly that, sections of the track make Craig sound like a youthful Michael Jackson, crossed with the two stepping R Kelly.

Craig David returns with a new look and a fresh new sound with his 4th studio album "Trust Me" which includes his most recent top ten hit "Hot Stuff (Let's Dance)" and brilliant collaboration with Kano, "This Is The Girl".

I loved "Hot Stuff" upon release and was expecting big things from "Trust Me". And, it's safe to say that it doesn't disappoint! "Hot Stuff" is by no means the only song on the album which will make a successful chart single. The album is full of clever, catchy songs (with its perfect blend of soulful ballads and upbeat dance floor-fillers), the majority of which are more than capable of being chart hits.

For me, it's almost impossible to choose a favourite track, however, some of the highlights of the album include, "She's On Fire", "6 Of 1 Thing", "Officially Yours" and "Kinda Girl For Me". The first two, in particular stand out and should definitely be released as singles in the near future.

Although there aren't many, it annoys me to see negative reviews of this album - which all compare "Trust Me" with Craig's last 3 albums. I know that any album that Craig releases will always be compared to his debut, "Born To Do It", but in my opinion, "Trust Me" can't really be compared because it's so different (but in the best way possible). "Born To Do It" was released in 2000 - we're now in 2007. Not only has music changed in these last 7 years, but obviously Craig has too. This album proves just how much he has grown and matured as an artist - demonstrating his unbeatable, flawless vocals, exceptional music writing abilities and touching, soulful lyrics - showcasing Craig perfectly, proving that he's in it for the long-haul.

All I can say is 'Buy it'! You won't be disappointed.

Having not heard much from CD for some while, he has suddenly burst back onto the scene with this pleasant mix of ballad and dance. I got this on the back of hearing the opening track while having MTV on in the background and, for the first time this year, suddenly looking up with a 'Whoa, what's this?!' moment.

There are no disappointing tracks here, and CD's voice is as smooth and soulful as ever. He's the X-factor winner Cowell and co could only dream of finding in their annual trawl of the hopeless and talentless. Trust Me has current pride of place on my iPod and likely to be for some time

Been a fan of CD ever since 7 days, but felt that his music was better at this time, more so than his new stuff. Since moving to America (which seemed a shame as he forgot about his roots), his music has dipped and he seems to have dropped off the radar.

I went to see craig david at ronnie scotts and heard him sample his new album and I gotta say this is some of the best stuff we have heard from craig for a long while. I was very disappointed with his last album however this new album hs restored my faith in him. A variety of different vibes to the album. A little something for everyone!

Craig David comes back with a new look, looking all buff, and a more grown up sound yet still being a step ahead of the rest! this album is full of clever catchy tunes while displaying Craig's amazing vocal abilities. On some songs his voice sounds very deep and sexy quite Prince like. This is the kind of album you listen to once and pick up on the hooks of each song and when you listen to it the second time you feel like you have heard it dozens of times.It is very accessible and Craig has embraced a slightly more musical approach this album it is full of proper instruments instead of the synthesized garbage a lot of artists use. I cannot recommend this album highly enough. it is the ideal Christmas present for any Lady in your life or any man who appreciates decent music! And I don't recall him saying his own name over and over last past albums!
