Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall ‘is in talks with record label to sign lucrative solo deal’
Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall is in talks with a record label to sign a lucrative solo deal after impressing them with her own new tracks, according to a new report.
The 28-year-old pop star is said to have met Atlantic Records, the label that represents Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora and Charli XCX.
It comes after earlier this week it was claimed that Jade had recorded solo music and signed with Harry Styles’ management company following Jesy Nelson’s departure from Little Mix.

“Jade has met with Sony before to discuss things but has been really impressed with Atlantic – and all signs point to her going with them.
“She had top secret talks with them and everything is really positive.

“It’s well known that Little Mix will be taking a break from touring next year and it’s no surprise that Jade is already working on solo songs.”
A representative for Jade has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Jade had recorded solo music and signed with Harry Styles’ management company following Jesy’s departure from Little Mix.
The singer has signed a deal with Full Stop Management – which is also home to Lizzo, Mark Ronson and Saweetie – and is set to have huge solo success like the 27-year-old former One Direction star.

Under his guidance, Harry has enjoyed massive global chart success – including Grammy nominations – with his two solo albums, launched an acting career and, most recently, founded his own beauty brand, Pleasing. .
Alongside music, Jade is said to be keen to appear more on the small screen after proving popular as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
An insider told The Sun: “Jade had a series of meetings with Full Stop Management earlier this year and she has now signed on the dotted line.
“They think she’s going to be a big star, just like Harry became after One Direction’s hiatus.
‘Jade has plenty of ideas for her solo music and she’s already recorded some amazing songs that have impressed industry bosses.
“In addition to music, she is putting plans in place for more television appearances and there is no doubt that she can become a mega-star in her own right.
“Jade is still incredibly close to her Little Mix bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards and they all support each other behind the scenes.
“It will be a really exciting time for the three of them.”

Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, is already making strides on her own after signing with Dua Lipa and Ellie Goulding’s TaP Music Management.
As well as starring in the celebratory film ‘Boxing Day’, the star is set to co-host the MOBO Awards on Dec. 5 in Coventry with Munya Chawawa.
Little Mix – completed by Perrie, 28, following the exit of Jesy, 30, in December – have played down rumors that they will be taking a break from their ‘Confetti’ tour next year.
After Jesy’s departure, there was speculation that the Sweet Melody hitmakers would go their separate ways.
But Jade quashed the rumors, saying, “10 years.” I do not know. Well obviously I think Little Mix will always be around. We will always have each other. I think when you have that kind of connection… I’ve spent my entire adult life with girls and that’s probably never going to change no matter what.
Ex-boyfriend Jesy released her first solo single, ‘Boyz’, last month and is set to release her debut album next year.
