"Natural" is a song by English pop group S Club 7. It was released on 11 September 2000 as the single. It is a slow R&B oriented ballad with Rachel Stevens singing lead vocals. The track was written by Cathy Dennis, Jean Fredenucci, Norma Ray and Andrew Todd. It is an English cover of French singer Norma Ray's late 90s hit Tous Les Maux D'Amour,[1] both which sample Gabriel Fauré's Pavane.

Song information[edit]

Natural, S Club 7's fifth single, features Rachel Stevens as lead vocals. It describes love for an individual as a natural occurrence.

There are also three different versions of the song. The album version, included on the original release of 7, features a R&B style production. The single version is mixed with heavier pop music themes, including the use of a vocoder, and the male vocals are more predominant. The video version is identical to the single version, except it features extra adlib vocals from Rachel. The video version has never had a commercial release.
