Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock is making major moves.
Full story below…
The singer, who is a founding member of the chart-topping Pop group, has joined Tap Music – who will represent her solo activity across music, film, and television.
Pinnock is in great company on their roster, which includes Dua Lipa and Lana Del Rey.
Tap Music will work alongside Little Mix’s longtime management (Modest), who will oversee Pinnock’s continued work with the band.
Speaking on the deal, the performer said:
“I’m so excited to reveal I am now being represented by Tap Music for all of my solo projects. This is such an incredibly exciting time for me and my career and I can’t wait to show everyone what I’ve got coming up. I will continue to work on my solo endeavours alongside my Little Mix commitments”.”
Tap’s co-founders Ed Millett and Ben Mawson said:
“We are really thrilled to welcome Leigh-Anne to the Tap family for all her solo activities. She is an incredibly smart and talented artist with a strong vision and sense of purpose and has numerous fantastic projects across TV, film and music already in the pipeline. We’re really looking forward to working with Leigh-Anne to help realise and achieve all her goals and more”.
The latter was something the 29-year-old – who has also signed with one of the UK’s leading PR companies – was keen to assure fans was still very active. She took to Instagram to say:
“Perrie, Jade, and I are solid! Yal have nothing to worry about! Little Mix have a big year coming up and we’re super excited. Love you guys so much, thank you for always supporting.”
Her assurance will no doubt be welcomed by fans of the group, who are still processing the shock departure of member Jesy Nelson last December.
The news comes after Little Mix landed their fifth #1 single ‘Sweet Melody’; it also lands on the heels of confirmation that Pinnock will be starring in Warner Bros’ new movie ‘Boxing Day.’
