Dork’s all-new podcast Chart Attack is back with a new episode, out today (Wednesday 30th August). This time round, we’re heading back to the turn of the millennium for Craig David‘s huge chart-topper, ‘Fill Me In’.
In season one, we jump in our big pop time machine and revisit ten iconic number ones from the turn of the millennium onwards. Exploring the highs and lows of the 21st-century UK chart, we’ll be dissecting cultural milestones, iconic pop stars, telling classic pop stories, and taking a trip down memory lane ourselves. Most importantly, we’ll be asking the crucial pop question: is this a good song?
This week on Chart Attack, we fill you in on the beginnings of Craig David’s career, his meteoric rise to the top and almost immediate fall. Episode 4 sees us dig deep into the music press of the millennium and the notorious treatment of a star on the rise as he hit number 1 with his debut single ‘Fill Me In’, plus a look at his grand return many years later as he was embraced as a true British icon.
