Overview

Opening the album Trust Me with the very identifiable intro to David Bowie's "Let's Dance" which was sampled throughout the song "Hot Stuff (Let's Dance)," Craig David released his fourth album of the 21st century. After the '80s style pop of "Hot Stuff," the next two tracks were "6 of 1 Thing," a funk/soul highly infectious song, and "Friday Night," which reminds one of Kool & the Gang at their early-'80s funky peak. "Kinda Girl for Me" extensively but subtly used a sample of the song "You Are Everything." There was a variety of styles on Trust Me, none of which detracted from its overall sense of cohesion, "Awkward" was a soulful ballad, "Officially Yours" and "Top of the Hill" had the backing of an acoustic guitar, but "She's on Fire" relied heavily on an electric bassline. "This Is the Girl" was a hip-hop number, and "Don't Play with Our Love" (subtitled "Trust Me") was a Latin influenced salsa track which was more in keeping with the ambience of the album which was recorded in Havana, Cuba and produced by Martin Terefe. Trust Me charted at number 18 in its first week and began a rapid descent downwards, but might have performed better had it been released at a less competitive time of year.
