In 2004 Natasha, now 42, released her debut album Unwritten, which sold more than 2.3 million copies worldwide.
It included hits like These Words and Single, as well as the titular track, which earnt her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
She was also nominated for Best British Female Artist at both the 2005 and 2006 Brit Awards.
Her last album, Roll with Me, was released in 2019.
However it’s one of her most iconic tracks, Unwritten, that has recently jumped back into the charts two decades later after being featured in rom-com Anyone But You, which stars Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell.

The song was previously known for being the soundtrack to the reality TV series The Hills when it ran from 2006 until 2010.
This week Natasha made an appearance on Lorraine to speak about the song’s renaissance, and the meaning it still holds for her years later.
Speaking to the host, Natasha spoke about how the song had reached a whole new generation, with it also being used widely on TikTok in recent weeks.
‘The message really is about releasing your inhibitions, so I am happy that has got through,’ she said.

‘I love it. I am so enjoying it [its renewed popularity].’
Referencing the recent popularity of Murder on the Dancefloor in Saltburn, Natasha said she agreed with Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s sentiments that they could now enjoy the success of the song ‘more this time around’.
The performer, who lives between the UK and New York, said despite being through ‘ups and downs’ in her career, she was at her happiest in recent years.
‘Music does that. You can talk through real things you’ve gone through. Now I’ve had more experiences I can really…when I wrote Unwritten, I didn’t know how much it would apply to me now, but I really try to live by it,’ she said.

She added her six-year-old son ‘loved’ listening to her music, adding she was ‘lucky’ he was at the age when he wasn’t embarrassed by his mum’s work.
When watching the interview, many viewers pointed out it looked like Natasha hadn’t aged since she first became a household name.
‘Natasha has hardly aged a day. God, I loved Unwritten growing up,’ Matty posted on X.
‘How on earth is Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten 20 years old?!’ Lauren Trueman shared.
Earlier this week Natasha shared a hilarious image of herself edited onto a wave after the song started hitting charts in countries including the UK and Germany.
‘Surfing back to your ears. This #anyonebutyoumovie stuff is still going strong,’ she wrote.
‘Thank you all so much. It’s kind of intense.’
She later added she was ‘touched by the love’.
Lorraine airs weekdays from 9am on ITV1.
