Second Cup Café: Craig David

Last year, Craig David two-stepped his way to international stardom.

The British-born singer infuses a mix of R&B, pop and dance into a sound that has proven to be irresistible. His debut album, "Born to Do It," sold more than seven million copies worldwide and earned him a Grammy nomination.

David stopped by The Saturday Early Show's Second Cup Café to perform acoustic sets, such as "What's Your Flava," "Hidden Agenda," and "World Filled With Love," from his new album, "Slicker Than Your Average."

The singer/songwriter partnered with a variety of producers for his new album, including Marshall & Trell, Soulshock & Karlin and his longtime studio collaborator, Mark Hill.

David also made a collaborative single with the familiar voice of Gordon Sumner, better known to the world as Sting. He says that working with this musical veteran was special.

David has traveled from Southampton's housing estate to full-fledged international pop phenomenon. At the age of 18, he became the youngest-ever British male artist to achieve a No. 1 single when "Fill Me In" topped the UK chart back in March 2000.

His debut album, "Born to Do It," went on to become one of 2001's most popular and acclaimed releases. Its sales exceeded more than 7 million worldwide — garnering gold, platinum and multi-platinum status in over 20 countries. The album featured two Top 10 singles in "Fill Me In" and "7 Days," plus a top 20 smash with "Walking Away."

David has won many awards and nominations — including a 2001 Grammy nomination for "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance" and a pair of MTV Europe Video Music Awards for "Best R&B Act" and "Best U.K. Act." Among his many triumphs, the "Fill Me In" video earned David two trophies at 2001's Billboard Music Video Awards: "Best Dance New Artist Clip" and "Best R&B New Artist Clip."
