Talk to Me, Pt. II
by Craig David (featuring Ella Mai)

Album: This Time Is Now (2018)


  • This song features Ella Mai. David told how he contacted the English singer-songwriter through social media:

    "Sometimes you don't even have to put a call in now, you can just do an Instagram post tagging in the person that you're feeling, and if you get a response all of a sudden it's direct. That's how the Ella Mai track happened on the album as well, with a song called 'Talk To Me, Pt II'. I was literally just listening to one of her songs before a session, I tagged her in with the video, she tagged back going 'I can't believe you even messaged me!' So we start messaging and next thing we're in the studio recording the song."
