Released in 1999, this new musical production offered Lynda Thomas the opportunity to branch out and experiment with different genres and musical styles. Lynda released seven singles from the album, and at least four singles from "Mi Dia De La Independencia" became smash hits. During the promotion of MDI, Lynda tries to convey the message that not all teenagers use drugs, alcohol and are depraved; on the contrary, she said that there are many teenagers who are interested in Social Welfare, Sustainable Development or Environmental Protection; she expressed her desire to become a spokeswoman for the teenagers.
Lynda first launched the single "No Quiero Verte", which reached the number one position in Spain, and remained 7 weeks at the top in Mexico, this single and Maldita Timidez, was the official beginning of a new pop-rock musical direction by Lynda; In "No Quiero Verte", Max Di Carlo (who worked before with Giorgio Moroder), co-wrote the song alongside Alissa, Di Carlo also was a recurrent producer (alongside Lara) and collaborator of Lynda, No Quiero Verte also was one of the biggest end year chart hits of 1999 in Ibero-America; her second physical single was "Maldita Timidez", it was an Ibero-American No. 1 and one of her biggest hits, the single received in Spain the Los 40 Principales award (the maximum recognition in pop music); when Lynda filming the promotional music video for the song alongside Mexican actor Héctor Arredondo, on locations of Lomas Verdes in the west of Mexico city, a high intensity earthquake occurred; then came the hit "Mi Día de la Independencia" and her smash hit " Corazón Perdido", that songs helped Lynda Thomas to reach new levels of success in her young career.
Subsequently, came the successful single "Mi Día de la Independencia", which also was the opening theme from the album of the same name, it also became a strong hit all over Ibero-America, mainly in Spain, Argentina, Chile and Mexico; the track was released as a psychical single in 1999, the song talks about the misconception that adults have about teenagers, but mainly, the musical theme made strong complaints against animal cruelty and the extinction of the whales.
"Corazón Perdido" was her last single and number one hit of the nineties for Lynda, it reached the number one position in Spain and remained at the Mexican charts over four months, and became the biggest hit single from "Mi Día de la Independencia". The success of her 1999 album, would prolong its promotion over two years. Lynda also recorded in Argentina an special acoustic version of the song for MuchMusic Latin America, due to the prolonged success of the single in Ibero-America.
In 2000, Lynda launched officially "Ahí Estare"; first, the single obtained a lot of airplay in 1999, but due to the prolonged success of her previous singles, the psychical release of "Ahí Estare" was delayed almost one year. Then, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lynda made an acoustic version of "Ahí Estare" (alongside Corazón Perdido), for MuchMusic, this, because the single got a huge success in such country.
In the year 2000, Lynda Thomas was involved in the production of a telenovela with the title Primer Amor: A mil por hora a remake of the 1987 smash TV-hit Quinceañera. She was hired to perform two musical theme songs for the teen melodrama, "Laberinto" and "A Mil Por Hora", the main theme, which climbed to the top position at the Mexican, Uruguayan and Argentinian charts. The music video which was filmed in 35 mm, was one of the most showed videos in the early 2000s all over Ibero-America due to the 2003 Brazilian re-released. The single sold over 500'000 units in Ibero-America and won a Gold certification, it also was included in the "A 1000 X Hora" EP and the 2000 international edition of her 1999 album Mi Día de la Independencia.

Incursion into new musical genres and setting new musical trends - Polen - New image and musical maturity, sudden and unannounced retirement (2001-2002)
In 2001, the world saw a new album titled "Polen". It was oriented to the acoustic rock, folk rock, alternative rock, Pop punk and Brit-rock music style, the last album by Lynda Thomas was a predecessor and pioneer in the alternative-rock international teen music scene, it was even released a year earlier that artists such as Avril Lavigne debuted in the music scene or months before Pink released Missundaztood. It also would be a fundamental musical and public image reference for the teen idol Belinda Peregrín, who made her musical debut as "Belinda" two years after "Polen" was released. Lynda's influence can be seen on the Belinda's smash hits Lo Siento or Boba Niña Nice from her 2003 debut album Belinda.
"Polen" counted with the participation of the American musician Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and production, who worked before with artist such as Frank Zappa- (Watermelon in Easter Hay) or Duran Duran-(Breath After Breath). The album went to number one in Mexico and other countries. It included 11 songs, most of them written by Lynda Thomas herself. This album included the international hit single "Lo Mejor De Mí", it was the last Ibero-American number one hit by Lynda; a music video filmed in Mexico city was made for the song, it was about a female Secret Agent who works for the U.S Embassy in Mexico, it was directed by Pedro Damian. Subsequently, came the hit singles "Para Tí", "Polen", "Mala Leche",(it also was the last music video made by Lynda) and "Estoy Viva". "Polen" was her last album in her career as a singer and showed Lynda with a new image and an advanced musical maturity. At Festival de Viña Del Mar held in Chile, Lynda was selected as part of the internacional jury, she also had an acclaimed performance and received positive reviews by critics and audience. Polen was certified Gold and Platinum in several countries.
Subsequently, also in 2001, Lynda released an ambitious an innovative Funk-Alternative metal single called "Polen (Todas Las Mujeres)", a theme dedicated to the human rights of all women, the song talks about gender discrimination, child sexual abuse, poverty or domestic violence, however, instead of receiving positive criticism, Lynda received harsh criticism and poor airplay due to the social complaints of the song and because the audience at the time, were not used to the thematic and rhythm of the single. Vinnie Colaiuta collaborated on drums and the co-production of the track; the song was influenced musically by Led Zeppelin (Immigrant Song) and Faith No More (Epic), mainly.
Then, Lynda released her third single from "Polen", an alternative-rock song called "Estoy Viva" (I'm Alive), written and produced by Lynda Thomas herself and recorded in Los Angeles, California. It was officially released as a psychical single in 2001; the song showed Lynda in a new musical facet, influenced by the Brit-pop and the Seventies rock, the song was dedicated to the oppressed women; it had a lack of commercial promotion due to the bad relation of Lynda with her record label, however, the song would become a musical reference for the upcoming pop and rock teen-idols in Ibero-America and others parts of the world.
Still in 2001, Lynda continued releasing innovative and uncommercial singles, even though her record label was against the decisions of Lynda Thomas, her fourth release from "Polen", "Ay, ay, ay", is a Andalusian-Flamenco Folk rock single, which was presented on the Mexican tv-show Hoy in that year, the world-music theme was a commercial failure in Ibero-America, except in Spain and Portugal, where the song obtained a moderate airplay and had a promotional tour in such countries.
In late 2001, Lynda released the teen pop-rock single Mala Leche, for this single, Lynda recorded what would be her last music video in her career, it was filmed in February, 2002, and was released in March in the rest of Ibero-America. It became a top three hit all over Ibero-America. At the time Lynda was suffering from Bulimia, but still, she continued with her extensive tour in Ibero-America.
She also released what would be her last single in her career as a singer, "Para Ti", a semi-acoustic song that reached Top ten in various countries. It was the international single in years without any promotional video, due to personal and contractual problems of Lynda.
A new world music-alternative rock album in English language by Lynda, which had already been finished, was originally scheduled for release in 2003 for the English-speaking and international markets, but due to disagreements with her record label, and her retirement, the album never was released.
Retirement, legacy and influence on others artists
In 2002, she retired temporarily to begin recording her new album in English language, but in 2003, she retired indefinitely as a singer, due to unknown reasons, personal and legal problems with her record label EMI MUSIC, Lynda had to pay an unknown amount of money to break free from her contract. She later continued her career as a song-writer, producer and devoted herself to charity work and animal protecting.
Lynda has been considered a pivotal artist and pioneer in the teen music and pop scene in Ibero-America, artists such as Belinda Peregrín, Natalia Lafourcade, Paty Cantú, Maite Perroni, Eiza González, Anahí, Irán Castillo, Paulina Goto, Dulce María, Danna Paola and Litzy Domínguez among many others have been influenced by her legacy.

She also provided the studio vocals for several songs of the band, and according with the journalist Horacio Villalobos and others press publications, she provided the lead studio voice for many hits of RBD, including the Ibero-American number one hit "Sálvame" (2004), under the uncredited pseudonym "Polen Thomas". Afterwards, she continued her career as composer, manager and producer of many other artists such as the teen-bands Eme 15, Uff!, RBD or Kudai among others.

Since her public absence, Lynda has been participating anonymously in projects about poverty, animal rescuing and other global problems.

During the early 2000s, Lynda suffered from Bulimia, Lynda claimed she lost large amounts of hair, she said "Weight became an obsession for me, I was wrong" actually, in her hit single "A Mil Por Hora", she talks about this disease.
Ibero-American Press has had speculated without fundaments or reliable sources about her personal life. Press has been publishing false information about she actually died in the mid 2000s, anorexia, residence or relationships. Since 2003 to 2013, she only has appeared one time in public life, to clarify such media speculation; it happened in January, 2005; Also, since 2003, it has been speculated about her musical return to the stages, but until 2013, never happened.
