Perrie Edwards has hinted that her debut solo album will include a song about her former Little Mix bandmate, Jesy Nelson. The “Forget About Us” singer, 30, along with her fellow bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 32, and Jade Thirlwall, 31, lost touch with Jesy after she left the band in 2021, citing mental health concerns. Although Edwards hasn’t explicitly named Nelson, she revealed that she has an emotional track on her album about a friendship she deeply misses.

Speaking on “The Zach Sang Show,” Edwards shared, “There’s a friendship that I no longer have. I wrote a song about that. That song – I can’t even listen to it without crying. It is about them and how we didn’t see eye-to-eye. It’s a really sad song. We don’t talk any more. They were a big part of my life so it’s sad how it all ended up.”

When asked if she believes there’s a chance for reconciliation, Edwards responded, “I’m open to it. I don’t know if they would be after they hear the song.”

Jesy Nelson has previously opened up about the lack of communication with her former bandmates since her departure. In an interview with The Sun last year, Nelson discussed the pressures of being in a girl band and how it affected her mental health. “Being in a girl band, you are a machine going all the time. You don’t have a minute to breathe and take time out if you just need space. That was something I struggled with. For me my mental health issues were an ongoing thing while I was in Little Mix. I was struggling with my body issues, I was constantly being trolled and I really, really struggled. I was in it for nearly 10 years. I think I was never prepared for what was to come. I didn’t have social media or any of that. I was just a barmaid working in Dagenham.”

Nelson emphasized that she has no regrets about leaving the band, stating, “Never say never, but I honestly wish them the best on their solo journeys now, which is so exciting. That is what is so exciting about all of us. We are all musically different. We will all go in our own lane. I’m rooting for all of them. I honestly do wish them all the success as they are all crazy talented.”

Little Mix, who gained fame on “The X Factor” in 2011 and went on to sell 60 million records worldwide, has since pursued individual projects. Fans are now eagerly anticipating Edwards’ solo album, curious to hear the poignant track about her lost friendship.
