Jade Thirlwall ‘holds top secret talks with record label for solo career’

Jade Thirlwall is said to be in talks with a record label about launching a solo career.

Rumours of a Little Mix hiatus have been circling after Jessy Nelson left the band last year and Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock became mums this summer.

But fourth member Jade, 28, is thought to be eyeing up her own music as her next step.

The star has reportedly been in talks with Atlantic Records to release new music, the label which also represents artists such as Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora and Lizzo.

A music insider told The Sun that Jade has “been working super-hard” on her new music and that the new tracks “sound amazing”.

They said: “Jade has already met with Sony to talk things through but has really been impressed by Atlantic — and all signs point to her going with them.

“She has held top-secret talks with them and it’s all really positive."

The source also claimed it was common knowledge that Little Mix were planning a hiatus next year and that it was “no surprise” Jade was planning solo music as her next move.

OK! has contacted reps for Jade Thirlwall for comment.

However, despite some band members pursuing other projects, Jade previously squashed any rumours Little Mix were planning to split.

Speaking to Gay Times, she said: “I think no matter what happens, Little Mix will always be there. I think in the past couple of years, we have started to delve into doing our own little things. That's been really beautiful to see.”

Jade continued: "I think initially in the first few years, all of us were terrified at the thought of doing something for yourself. One, because you just get so used to having each other and two, you know what the press are like, the minute one person does something they say, 'Oh, what's happening?'"

The brunette admitted that as a result, the three of them were "scared of any of us doing anything individually".

However, it was "really lovely actually" when they started to branch out and pursue things on their own as well as their Little Mix commitments as they wanted to show the public "a bit more about themselves individually".

Jade said the three of them have "really managed to get that balance right" in the past year, and they will want each other to "win".

Jade added: "There was not a doubt in our mind that we would continue as a three. Obviously so glad that we have because what a year we've had, and will continue to have years and years to come."

Little Mix recently released a greatest hits album called Between Us to mark their tenth anniversary.

Meanwhile, Leigh-Anne has presented a BBC documentary about colourism and race, while Perrie has launched her own clothing brand, Disora.
