Nomination: British Male Solo Artist
If I said spoke to you about Craig David in early 2015, half of you would have probably started singing one of his old-school classics like 7 Days, whereas some of you may have even asked Who’s That? You won’t be doing that anymore. Well some of you might.
In 2015, Craig dropped a Justin Bieber Where Are You Now cover which gained him some attention and then followed up the hype with a Top 10 single with Big Narstie called When The Bassline Drop. Craig David was officially back with a bang.
Since then, he’s upped the work rate massively securing another top 10 single with Blonde on Nothing Like This and working with Sigala on Ain’t Giving up which reached No. 23 on the UK Charts.
Craig David’s incredible comeback was official when he gained the Number 1 album spot for his critically acclaimed album Following My Intuition back in September 2016. It was his first number one album since Born To Do It, which came out in 2000.
The Southampton native has been a key figure in UK music since 2000 and it is nice to see him doing what he does best. Making good music for the people.
Between 2001-2006 he received 12 nominations for the BRITs but he hasn’t won yet. Maybe this will be his year?
