Former Little Mix star Jesy Nelson is returning to music nine month after leaving the band as she reportedly prepares to launch her solo career with a new song and music video.
Her return to music comes after splitting from former bandmates Jade Thirlwall, Leigh Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards to focus on her mental health.
While Jesy said the pressure of being in a girl group was tough on her mental health, she hadn’t sworn off a music career entirely and it seems she’s looking for a fresh start on her own terms with this new move.
An insider at The Sun said: “Jesy spent several months at the beginning of the year working on the music and it has all come together quite quickly.
“Her new record label Polydor are keen to strike while the iron is hot, so they are throwing everything at her project and want the first single out in a matter of weeks.”
The insider spoke about the turn to a solo career being a benefit as Jesy wont be “comparing herself to her bandmates” from now on.
They continued: “It is more upbeat than some might be expecting and there will be plenty of choreography in the video.
“The difference this time is that she is not comparing herself to her bandmates. It’s been so refreshing for her.
“Jesy has been working hard and is feeling really positive about this new chapter of her career.”
Jesy’s new music video sounds very different from her last experience on set, as last October’s shoot for Sweet Melody was the “breaking point” for Jesy.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan earlier this year, the 30 year old said: “The last music video we did was the breaking point.
“Whenever we had a music video, I put an enormous amount of pressure on myself to try and lose weight. I have a fear of looking back on the camera.
“If I don’t like what I see, I find it so hard to be in front of the camera and feel amazing and perform.”
While Jesy left Little Mix to focus on herself outside of a girl group, she held no negative feelings towards her former bandmates in her exit post.
Posting about her departure to Instagram, she finished: "Most of all I want to say thank you to Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne for creating some of the most amazing memories I'll never forget.
"I hope that you'll continue to fulfil all of your dreams and keep making music that people love."
