She painted an interesting tapestry of sound on an album that included carefree, upbeat tracks, mid-tempo chillout songs and sweet soulful ballads. Natalie returned to the studio to record the 2003 Holiday album entitled "A Cool Christmas", a 10 song Cool R&B/Pop influenced collection of Holiday favorites. The album included the beloved "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", the soaring chime of "Silver Bells" and the quietly understated "I'll Be Home For Christmas". Natalie pulled Ray Charles' "Christmas Time" out of the archives and gave it a light, airy spin that served the tune well. Up-tempo numbers included a Swing infused "Let It Snow" and a contemporary pairing of "Winter Wonderland" and "Sleigh Ride".
A mellow-groove rendition of "Give Love on Christmas Day" rounded out the sure-to-please Holiday offering. In the Spring of 2004 the digital singles 'I Wonder' and 'Queen of Me' were made available on Natalie's official site. The songs garnered tremendous attention and In July 2004, 'Queen of Me' was released by Avex, Inc. Japan on the "Soul Essentials 7" series with songs by Rahsaan Patterson, Earth, Wind & Fire and others. Much to the delight of fans eagerly awaiting new material, January 30th, 2009 saw the release of the long awaited sophomore album "Random Thoughts". The album features a selection of songs with varying themes (Natalie's Random Thoughts) that range from the inspiring "Hold Your Head Up High", the girl power anthem "Queen of Me" and the uplifting "It's A Beautiful Day", to the thought provoking "What's Going on Next Door?", the unity rallying call of "Come Closer", the sultry "How I Love 2 Love U", the soulful "You're Mysterious" and signature love ballad "I Knew You Were The One", and more.
