Jesy Nelson has returned “to the drawing board” with her first solo album.
The former Little Mix singer hasn’t released any music since collaborating with Nicki Minaj “Boyz” last October and executives at her Polydor label reportedly sent her back to the recording studio to work more on the rest of her songs. .
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Jesy has worked incredibly hard on her solo music.
“After releasing Boyz last year, she let the label hear early versions of the songs she had dreamed up.
“The bosses thought there was potential there, but they wanted her back to the drawing board. They thought the tracks would benefit – so she did.
“She’s determined to only play them new music when it’s perfect, so they haven’t heard from her since.
“But she’s a talented girl and everyone is excited to hear more when she’s ready. There are high hopes for her debut album when it’s finally finished.
There is currently no set release date for the disc.
In February, Jesy revealed that she had been in the studio with Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am.
Sharing photos on Instagram, she wrote, “Studio with one of my favorite humans @iamwill (sic)”
In some of the snaps, Jesy could be seen posing behind Will as he looked busy working on a computer.
The 30-year-old star also revealed that she was recording in Los Angeles.
She told her fans earlier this year, “La la land – Late nights, lost voices, beautiful people, amazing sessions. I’ve never needed this trip so much in my life!
“I’m beyond excited for you to hear this next part of my journey, this record is all my heart and I know you’ve been so patient, but I want you to know it will be worth the wait and I I love you so much. (sic)”
Last year, Jesy revealed that the still-unreleased tracks were inspired by a breakup, and she never wants to “live that again.”
She said: “If you were to bring back RB and pop from the 1990s and 2000s and do it now, that’s what it sounds like.
“I went through a breakup when I was writing it; it was the first time I had a broken heart in my life. I cried for a month in the studio.
“I wouldn’t change it because I wrote the best album of it, but Jesus Christ, I don’t ever want to go through that again.
“A lot [is also about] what I experienced in the group and how I felt. Then there are only firecrackers!”
