Former Little Mix band member Leigh-Anne Pinnock just signed a pretty major solo deal with Warner Records, and we are beyond excited to see where it takes her. Back in December, the girl group announced that they’d be taking a break following their 10-year anniversary to “recharge and work on some other projects”, which we now know includes solo music careers.
The initial announcement was shared by Warner Records on Instagram on 2 Feb., with a caption that read “Delighted to welcome @leighannepinnock to the Warner Records family”, to which Pinnock replied with “So excited for what’s to come.” Pinnock isn’t the only one planning to be making solo music either, since fellow band member Perrie Edwards was also recently spotted in the studio, working with one of Ed Sheeran’s producers, Fred Again.
Outside of the band, Pinnock has had a few different projects up her sleeve over the years, so we’re not surprised to see her taking her solo career to the next level. In December of last year, the singer made her acting debut in Aml Ameen’s “Boxing Day” film, shortly after releasing her very own documentary on colourism and racism in the music industry, titled “Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power”.
As a result, we’re very excited to see what’s next for Pinnock, and we’re even more excited to see that whatever it is, it will definitely involve her making music.
