On this day in 2003, Craig David released ‘Hidden Agenda’ as the second single from his ‘Slicker Than Your Average’ album.
The UK Top 10 hit was produced by Artful Dodger member Mark Hill.
Although the song doesn’t officially credit Jon B. as a songwriter or acknowledge the use of a sample, ‘Hidden Agenda’ has long been compared with Jon B.’s ‘Don’t Talk’, which was released two years prior.
The music video was shot in Mexico and features Roselyn Sánchez, who is known for starring in ‘Without a Trace’, ‘Devious Maids’ and more.
