Jade Thirlwall in talks with Atlantic Records for solo deal

Jade Thirlwall is in talks to sign a solo record deal.

The Little Mix star has been meeting with Atlantic Records, home to stars including Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora, to discuss a new deal.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Jade’s been working super-hard on the new music and those who have heard the tracks say they sound amazing.

“Jade has already met with Sony to talk things through but has really been impressed by Atlantic — and all signs point to her going with them.

“She has held top-secret talks with them and it’s all really positive.

“It’s well known Little Mix are going on hiatus after their tour next year and it’s no surprise that Jade is already working on solo songs.”

This comes after Jade, 28, recently signed to Harry Styles' management.

The star inked a deal with Full Stop Management - also home to the likes of Lizzo, Mark Ronson, and Saweetie - and is tipped to have huge solo success like the former One Direction star.
