Jesy Nelson is working on a solo music career following her exit from Little Mix and has been teasing lyrics on social media, so what do we know so far?
Jesy Nelson is almost certainly looking to launch a solo music career after showing she is back in the recording studio, working with producers and songwriters just months after quitting Little Mix after nine years in December 2020.
Jesy, 29, has been hitting the studio, or as she calls it, her 'happy place' and everyone is desperate to see what she is cooking up as she begins to tease lyrics on Instagram.
But have they said anything to do with her potentially becoming a solo artist?
Let's take a look...
In mid-February, Jesy posted a snap saying 'let's go' along with music emojis and later that day posted a snap from a recording studio.
In the months following, the pop star has been teasing her return to music, from glimpses of rehearsals as well as a snippet of what appears to be her first single!
The biggest hint yet has been Jesy's clear-out on Instagram, which is a typical move from artists when they tease a new era.
Her blank Instagram page has given fans all the feels as they prepare for what's in store for Jesy's solo debut!
Jesy has recently removed all her Instagram posts and unfollowed everyone! Are you excited to hear solo music from her? 🤔🤔 pic.twitter.com/1WFFcKCwSH— Mixer Management (@MixerManagemen2) August 4, 2021
After her initial tease, the flood gates have opened and Jesy is posting up lyrics all over the place, including some saying:
"Trackies on and them tattoos."
She also commented on a producer's post of them in the studio saying:
"I wanna get freaky for yuuuu [sic]."
Her most recent post shared some more lyrics, as she penned: "I don’t want it if it ain’t bad enough," alongside a stunning snap of herself, and we're getting seriously impatient now!
Drop the track, sis!
The singer has been posting up on Instagram with two major Little Mix producers, Sunny and Patrick Patrikios, (responsible for the banger that is, 'Touch') making it clear she is staying with the same crew as when she was in the band.
She has since uploaded another snap from the studio, captioned 'my happy place' along said creators, producer Patrick Patrikios and producer/songwriter, Sunny.
So, whatever she is working on, it definitely isn't a secret and Jesy seems happier than ever about telling the world about her creative process.
Fans are overjoyed the singer hasn't fallen out of love with her passion and is pursuing her own path- even if they are going to miss her very much in the group they know her from.
They have been commenting words of encouragement under all her posts, with one saying:
"Seeing you happy makes me SO happy. i cannot wait to see what you have in store."
Another said: "So excited to see what's coming!!"
JN1 (Jesy Nelson 1) is already being discussed and people are discussing what her musical style could sound like, from RNB to ballads being hoped for!
Since Jesy quit the band, she and the girls have distanced themselves and not had any interaction, at least publicly anyway.
Jesy still follows the band's Instagram and all the girls and vice versa, but the band have moved on with promotional shots of them as a three as well as taking Jesy out of the official Confetti Tour promotions.
The girls have also not spoken about the former fourth member's plans to go solo or what they make of it, something fans are especially interested to know about as Jesy is using the same producers as the band.
Following Jesy's first clue she was back making music on February 16, she has been peppering her social media with clues ever since which shows us she is working very hard and excited about what she is creating!
Her latest clear-out on Instagram is getting fans geared up for her solo era - and if that's not exciting enough, it has been reported that we should expect to hear the first taste of her solo debut in September.
She's also been teasing that she's rehearsing for something, so maybe we'll be treated to a music video, too?!
