A source told Daily Star: ‘It’s no secret Jesy has been hitting the studio recently but she’s no longer with RCA. It looks almost certain that she’s parted ways with Sony as a whole as well.
‘She’s looked for a whole new team and since splitting with Little Mix Jesy has been pitched around for a new PR to head up her upcoming projects. All signs point to a clean break and totally new direction.

The artist commanded the music charts with bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards for nine years, before she left the group for the sake of her mental health.
Jesy confirmed her permanent departure, just weeks after revealing she was taking a temporary hiatus from all work commitments.
Her emotional statement read: ‘To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life.
‘We have achieved things I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold out shows at the O2.
‘Making friends and fans all over the world I can’t thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never ever forget it.
‘The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.
‘There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.

‘I want to say thank you to everyone involved in our journey. All the hard work and dedication that went into making us a success.
‘To every single fan who came to see us in concert, who listened to our songs and sung their hearts out, sent me messages and supported me along the way I want you to know I love you all so much and I could never have done this without you and I appreciate it endlessly.
‘Most of all I want to say thank you to Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne for creating some of the most amazing memories I’ll never forget. I hope that you’ll continue to fulfil all of your dreams and keep on making music that people love. Love Jesy x.’
