In 2003, at the age of sixteen, Thomas released her debut single "Why (Does Your Love Hurt So Much)", which reached number forty in the German Chart (and went Top 4 in the airplay chart).
"Save Your Kisses For Me" was released at the beginning of June 2004, meeting great success, while her second single "It's Over Now" reached #12 on the charts. The mid-tempo love song, which features the Tobagan reggae artist Sugar Daddy (who also worked with Buju Banton, Sizzla and Capleton), also made it into the top twenty of the airplay charts.
Thomas was later selected to represent one of the world's best-known and most important fashion labels, "Lacoste". As the new worldwide face of "Lacoste", Thomas was seen from May 2004 onwards in a pan-European print and TV campaign alongside the French tennis ace Arnaud Clément. The advert was directed by Bruno Aveillan (Nissan, Perrier, Nintendo, and others), who previously worked with top stars such as Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, and Gisele Bündchen.
Thomas was also seen worldwide in the Lacoste's Touch of Pink fragrance print and TV ads. One of Thomas's song fragments that appeared in the TV ads was "Let Me Show You (The Way)". Touch of Pink won two FiFi Awards in Berlin in April 2005, including "People's Choice' Award for Women".
Later, Thomas broke her worldwide recording contract with Sony Music and has started her own record company along with her management crew. The result of this new artistic choice was her second album "Playin' With Fire", released in 2006 and re-issued the following year to include the single "Real".
Save Your Kisses, Natasha Thomas' first album was a minor hit in some South America Countries, such as Argentina and Brazil (where it was released by Epic Records in 2004). Thomas' song "It's Over Now" was included on the Brazilian soap opera "Senhora do Destino" (English: "The Owner of Destiny") international soundtrack. Her second album "Playin' With Fire", was not released there.
In 2008, Natasha Thomas was about to release the new single "Stereotypical" and was working with D'Klay Produktionz and Gabriel Flies. She stated on her official MySpace that the album would be released in early 2009 but no further information was given and the album is still unreleased.
