Jesy Nelson ‘will release her debut solo single in September’… nine months after quitting Little Mix
Jesy Nelson‘s first single as a solo artist will be released in September, according to reports.
Her new track will arrive nine months after Jesy, 30, left Little Mix and is said to be ‘more upbeat than some might be expecting’.
The hitmaker – who is signed to record label Polydor – has spent ‘the last three days’ rehearsing alongside 20 dancers for the music video shoot and the process has been ‘so refreshing for her’.

A source told The Sun: ‘Jesy spent several months at the beginning of the year working on the music and it has all come together quite quickly.
‘Her new record label Polydor are keen to strike while the iron is hot, so they are throwing everything at her project and want the first single out in a matter of weeks.’
They added: ‘Jesy has been working hard and is feeling really positive about this new chapter of her career.’
MailOnline has reached out to representatives for Jesy for comment.

Jesy won The X Factor alongside Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall in 2011.
Together Little Mix sold over 60 million records, making them one of the biggest girl bands of all time.
Jesy confirmed her permanent departure from the band last December, just weeks after revealing she was taking a temporary hiatus from all work commitments.
Her emotional statement read: ‘To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life…
‘The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.
‘There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.’
She has since been recording solo music after signing with a new global management firm.
