Leigh-Anne Pinnock has signed a major recording deal for solo music in the run up to Little Mix's hiatus.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock is gearing up to a solo career after signing a lucrative recording deal with Warner Records.
As Little Mix’s hiatus approaches, the three stars are focusing on their independent ventures – with the mum-of-two planning to further expand her discography.
The girl group confirmed the long-whirring rumours in December that they were in fact going on a hiatus following their Little Mix Confetti Tour, concluding in May.
The 30-year-old singer took to Instagram to share her excitement over the career milestone, she posted to her story: “So excited for what’s to come.”
The official UK Twitter page for the label announced the news on Wednesday (February 2), writing: “Delighted to welcome Leigh-Anne Pinnock to the Warner Records family!”
Leigh-Anne has already dipped her toe into the solo music pool with the original soundtrack to festive feature flick, Boxing Day – which was also her acting debut.
An insider spoke to the tabloids, stating: “A number of labels were keen to bag Leigh-Anne but Warner seemed the best fit.
“She’s already been in the studio working on tracks for months,” revealing that new music could be on the horizon.
The 'Between Us' songstress has been carving out a solo career for herself as she also landed her first hosting gig last year for the MOBO Awards.
