Former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson has signed a solo record deal with Universal Music’s Polydor label.

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

Co-President of Polydor, Ben Mortimer, adds: “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”.

Nelson announced that she was leaving Little Mix in December last year, following a break from the group. She then signed a management deal with YMU in March. Her debut solo album is expected later this year.
