David’s earliest exposure came when he worked on a B-side to British group Damage’s cover of “Wonderful Tonight”, on the track “I’m Ready”. He then started doing vocals for the English garage duo Artful Dodger, on tracks such as “Something” and “What Ya Gonna Do”.
The song “Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta)”, from the Artful Dodger album It’s All About the Stragglers, hit number two on the UK charts in 1999; thus, paving the way for a solo career. David’s first single, “Fill Me In”, released on Colin Lester’s and Ian McAndrew’s Wildstar Records, topped the UK chart and was the first of a string of four top 10 singles from his debut album Born to Do It, which eventually sold more than 8 million copies worldwide, earning multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries.The song “Key to My Heart”, taken from the US version of the album, was also featured on the award-winning Warner Bros. animated film Osmosis Jones.

It reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Born to Do It was released in the United States on 17 July 2001, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold over 1 million copies. The single “7 Days” hit the top 10 in the U.S.; although “Walking Away”, which had reached number 3 in the UK and number 5 in Australia, missed the top 40 in the U.S. and was the last of his singles to chart there.In April 2009, MTV viewers voted Born to Do It as number 2 on their “Greatest Album of All-Time” poll, behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
