Craig David Talks Greatest Album Ever
The singer tells MTV about coming second in our poll to find the best album ever…
Thursday, April 9, 2009 - 12:15
The Seven Days singer was only beaten in the chart by Michael Jackson’s classic album Thriller.
Coming third in the vote was Appetite For Destruction by Guns N Roses, fourth was Radiohead Ok Computer and fifth was Nirvana’s Nevermind.
Speaking to us on the phone from his Asia tour Craig said: “To come just behind the king of pop is incredibly flattering, because you know what I grew up listening to that guy’s music.
“To know that it was a vote across the board as apposed to people who just listen to RnB or hip hop music is wicked. Joshua Tree by U2 is in there- I mean there are some massive albums in there.”
Asked why he thinks Born To Do It connects with people he revealed: “I guess looking back in hindsight it was a real movement at that period of time… It was just an absolute phenomenon.”
A very happy Craig added: “It’s incredibly flattering- I’m very honoured to have the record in that place, it’s wicked.”
MTV received over 40,000 votes in our Greatest Album Ever poll.
To see the countdown of MTV’s Greatest Album Ever tune in to MTV on Saturday 11 April at 9pm across MTV One, MTV Two, MTV Base, MTV Hits and VH1.
