If you'd made a list of what artists were on the comeback trail in 2016, Craig David probably would have been pretty far down the pecking order. Spice Girls? Possibly. Gorillaz? It's all but been confirmed. Janet Jackson? It's happening.
However, Craig David surprised us all late in 2015 when he began turning up on Trevor Nelson's BBC Radio show, at one point unleashing a new, updated-for-the-millennial-generation take on his song 'Fill Me In' which incorporated Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber's 'Where Are U Now' and subsequently went semi-viral. He's been gathering momentum ever since – appearing on X Factor, releasing a new track with Big Narstie and putting his own garage spin on another of Bieber tracks.
Could 2016 be the Year of the David? Can he finally leave those Bo' Selecta! jibes behind forever?
He releases new album 'Following My Intuition' later this year – his first album of original material since 2007 - but whatever the outcome, here's a brief look at the highs and lows of the garage musician's career. (We'll let you decide for yourself which ones are considered highs and which are lows.)
