Jesy Nelson splits from record label Polydor; solo career over?

Jesy Nelson has split from her record label Polydor after 14 months and she has since been removed from Polydor’s roster on their website. A spokesman for Jesy said: “Jesy Nelson feels now is the right for her to move in a new direction. As a result, she has decided to part company with Polydor.” She signed a major solo deal with Polydor Records in May last year but has only released one single, the Nicki Minaj-assisted 'Boyz' which totally flopped and went nowhere despite the high profile feature. Her solo comeback was marred by black-fishing allegations and a public feud with her ex Little Mix band-mate Leigh-Ann Pinnock. 

But to be honest, this news comes as no surprise given that it is known she's difficult to work with. Her bad attitude alone was fully exposed when she kept criticising Little Mix in interviews and more so when she went on that Instagram Live with Nicki Minaj, embarrassing herself for no reason. Also, there were several reports circulating last month that her solo album was delayed due to record executives being 'unimpressed' with early versions of her songs. Of course she hopped on Instagram Stories to deny it, but there's never any smoke without fire. The album was obviously sh*t and her record label probably wanted her to scrap it and start over. So the real story most likely is that she had creative differences with them, and she realised their partnership just wasn't going to work once they told her it was their way or the high way.

Apparently they told her to stop trying to co-write stuff and let Polydor set up a writers camp/send songs over. She was reluctant and wanted to include Boyz with other similar songs.

Doesn't surprise me.

She should have just done a Beyoncé/Mariah, let people write the bulk of the songs and change a word here and there - Remi
