"Spanish" is the fourth UK single from Craig David's second album Slicker Than Your Average. The song became his tenth top ten hit in the UK (including his Artful Dodger collaborations), peaking at #8 and spending six weeks inside the top 75. "Spanish" saw David incorporate a Spanish element into his music for the first time, including on the track with Spanish rapper Duke One. In Australia, "Spanish" was skipped and "World Filled with Love" was released as the fourth single instead.
