Jesy Nelson, Formerly Of Little Mix, Signs Major Solo Album Deal With Polydor

Published: Friday 21st May 2021 by Sam

Jesy Nelson is embarking on her next musical chapter.

Almost six months after leaving Little Mix, the singer has announced that she has signed a solo deal with Universal Music’s Polydor Records.

Full story below…

Posing at the offices of the super label, she revealed that she’ll be joining the roster – which includes Lana Del Rey, HAIM, and Ellie Goulding.

As Universal’s UK equivalent of Interscope, the label is also at the helm of releases from US superstars such as Billie Eilish and breakout names like Olivia Rodrigo.

It was earlier reported that Nelson was at the center of a fierce bidding war.

Per the announcement, the 29-year-old is readying her debut album for release later this year.

She said:

“I’m so excited to finally announce that I will be signing to Polydor Records. I cannot wait for you to hear what I’ve been working on and to start this new chapter with the Universal Music team.”

Ben Mortimer, Co-President of Polydor added:

“As soon as I met Jesy I knew Polydor had to become her label partner. She’s developed the sound for her next music beautifully. It’s true to her. And she has an authentic vision about what this next stage of her already incredible career should be.

There’s a huge appetite for what music she comes with now, and a huge platform to launch it from. I’m proud she’s chosen Polydor to be her new home.”

Tom March, co-president of Polydor continued:

“Jesy Nelson is an incredible artist and I’m delighted she’s chosen Polydor for the next phase of her extraordinary career.

I have enormous respect for Jesy and the way she’s able to communicate and connect with her fans globally.”

Nelson has sold over 60 million records as part of Little Mix. And while she expressed gratitude for her time in the band, she has been vocal about the pressures she felt being in a girl group – specifically online bullying and comparisons.


Jesy is such an undeniable talent. So we’re excited to hear what she’s cooking and see how she’ll create a musical identity now she’s riding solo.

    Wait a minute. She used the bullying excuse to jump ship? Does she not think she’s going to be bullied as a solo artist?

    I thought she wanted to leave music. This seems sneaky

    • Adele May 21, 2021

      It is weird isn’t it?

      • Shayla Queen 👑 May 21, 2021

        yup 😒

    • Mack May 21, 2021

      That’s exactly what she did. She was saying her mental health was at risk but yet your going to go solo. I knew that was a lie the minute she put it out

      • anonymous May 23, 2021

        Don’t go about saying s*** like you know what she was passing through. Even if she didn’t have a problem with her mental health I don’t see how it’s your f****** business . She’s old enough to make her own decisions and she’s well aware of the damn consequences that come with them. Learn to respect people’s decisions.

    “Jesy is such an undeniable talent.”

    What does she know how to do well?
    Is she a good singer? NO
    Is she a good dancer? NO
    Is she beautiful? NO. She a white woman doing blackface

  3. Sascha Baron May 21, 2021

    Jesy can sing very well…

    But the blackfishing will definitely get her cancelled immediately…

    She needs a therapist. She hated how she looked so she got plastic surgery then she was still mad she was BIGGER than the other girls.. n would cry and s***
    News flash, ur a big boned woman and NOW ur gonna be compared to skinnier, solo artist..
    She didn’t even need all that surgery, just a more defined jaw line n she would’ve been a cute pasty white girl

  4. Clarks0o00ñ May 21, 2021

    It’s like ally brooke thinking she can have a successful solo career.

    I didnt even notice her when she was in little mix.

    These girl look at Camila and her sucess and they think they can replicate it. Poor things

    They dont know Camila is gifted with a unique voice, strong song writing skills and a good ear for a hit.

    Camila was literally a solo superstar while she was still in 5th harmony.

    • Nicky May 21, 2021


      Solo Superstars of groups stand the test of time.

      Diana Ross. Beyonce. JT.

      Camicky is a fluke who has yet to have a solo top 40 smash or hit without remixes or assistance. Accept it. 😂😂😂😂

      • Nicky May 21, 2021

        Michael Jackson

        Camicky The Clown career is toast.

      • Clarks0oñ May 21, 2021

        The last time normani appeared on the billboard hot 100 was November 2019

        U have better things to worry about.

        Never be the same, a solo song, peaked at number 6, higher than any f******* song ever released.

        Even motivation had a remix with 21 savage and the song still flopped. 😂😂
        Now RCA records has shelved the girl.

    This beeetch is full of liessssssss💅🏿💅🏿 Flop ass c u n t

    Jizzy Gulpson will never make it as a solo star.

    An artist? What instrument does she play?
    Songwriter – usually teamed with 8 or 9 other writers for one song?
    Someone else crafts & producers a track, melody, overall song concept. She shows up and adds a line or two…at best.

    These girls are only as good as the people who find the good songs/tracks.
    Doesn’t Matthew Knowles need a job?

  8. Adonis May 21, 2021

    I think what she’ll do is make music that’s kinda like Billie Eyelash, Lana Del Rey et al music that doesn’t focus on her sexuality, her body, looks etc meaningful music. Good for her.

  9. Clarks0o00ñ May 21, 2021

    The funniest part is, this girl is going to release an album before normani.


    4 years of going solo, no album out. So shameful and Embarrassing

    Normani has been in the industry longer than
    Olivia rodrigo
    Megan thee stallion
    Billie eilish
    Ella mai
    Doja cat
    And they have all released albums before her.

    God dont like dirty. Go against Camila its gonna cost you.

    Saweetie, chloe bailey are going to drop their albums before normani. Lol
    We love to see it 😍

    • akathexfactor May 21, 2021

      It doesn’t mean that normani isn’t good. Cassie and Tinash also don’t have solo projects out. At this point Normani should just release an EP like Ari & Jorja then build up to an album.

  10. Tt May 21, 2021

    Made the other girls feel bad for being attractive only to — never mind.. good luck

  11. Tt May 21, 2021

    And the way Normani gets brought up in every post with nothing to do ….. you can’t buy that kinda attention…

    • Clarks0o00ñ May 21, 2021

      Go back to Twitter u delusional f******* stan.

      Continue waiting for that delusional album.
      Continue spreading your conspiracy theories about how everybody is sabotaging normani because she is dark skin..

      • akathexfactor May 21, 2021

        It is true tho. 👀.

  12. Keeping it real 💯💯 May 21, 2021

    She will flop.
    Just like the rest of the girls from fifth harmony did when they disbanded
    What is she gonna bring to the table that we haven’t already seen or heard from the likes of Ariana, Dua, Demi, Selena etc…

  13. Susan May 21, 2021

    Shes the least interesting from the group. This is going to be such a flop. Then she’ll go back to the group. Girl gone

  14. AnonymousTruth May 21, 2021

    I mean ….. her best bet was being in a group – as I can’t see any of them as solo artists , hence why they were thrown together. I know she felt how she felt , but she was given the
    opportunity of a lifetime and let insecurity eat her up. So many solo stars get the same s***; or if not …. more as they are the sole focus , wish she could’ve just ignored the media and stories – because if she now flops solo … then sux 4 herrrr.

  15. truthteller May 21, 2021

    Surprised Mixer4Life or whatever username they are using now hasn’t posted yet about how Jesy is a Queen and going to slay. This girl has even less chance than Normani of being a solo success.
