“I cannot wait for you guys to hear what I’ve been working on,” added Jesy.

The songstress was inundated with messages of support from fans as well as fellow stars including Kamille - a singer songwriter who has notably worked with Little Mix a number of times.

Kamille wrote: “Wooooooo!!! Yassss babe so excited for u!!! [sic],” alongside a string of fire emojis.

This comes after Jesy confirmed that fans can expect to hear her new music this summer, after spending months teasing her followers with clips in the recording studio.

Polydor is home to an array of talented artists including Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Raye and Selena Gomez, to name a few.

It’s fair to say we’re all excited to see what Jesy has in store!
