8 reasons to be delighted with Craig David's return to music

He stopped making love this Thursday to release new music.


Yes, it is indeed, the return of the mack. R’n'B lothario Craig David today released a new song, and it’s literally music to our ears. The British singer has been off our radar since his last original album in 2007.

But now, he’s back, with a single about MDMA. Erm, yeah.

Here’s why we’re delighted this is happening, and you should be too.

1. He looks like this now


Doing what I love and loving what I do... Eating Clean and Training Dirty. A special thank you to @WorldClassClubs for allowing me to workout and shoot at your state of the art facility here in Moscow. Now time to hit the studio. Source: craigdavid

We mean, really.

Eating Clean & Training Dirty! My respect goes out to everyone of you who has kept to their new years resolutions whatever they may have been & are seeing results!!! Source: craigdavid

2. His glorious lyrics can be revisited

And no guilt will be felt.

They’re legit chat-up lines again.

7. The possibility of a gig

Imagine. Craig David, SIX nights in Croke Park. The campaign starts here.

Thank you so much to everyone of you who came to see me perform at Festas do Mar, Cascais, Portugal! 17,000 amazing people singing every word of my songs! #Blessed #Grateful #Happy Source: craigdavid

His only upcoming gig is Vestival in Holland next month, which is quite frankly, a travesty.
