Leigh-Anne has kept her fans up to date via Instagram as she travelled to Jamaica to record solo music.
She also recorded two solo songs that were featured in her first film Boxing Day.
Leigh-Anne portrayed a pop star in the Christmas film and she explained exclusively to Tyla how it felt filming solo performance scenes without her bandmates Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall.
“It was really strange being on that stage in jazz café scene. I haven't sung on my own for like 10 years. So, that was like petrifying," she confessed.

“But I think it's also nice because I think people finally get to really hear me sing. And I don't think a lot of people have really heard me sing like that. Especially when you're in a group.”
She also shared what initially attracted her to the role of Georgia. “I think what attracted me was the fact that she is quite similar to me, in the sense that she’s a pop star, she's very relatable and it just made me think ‘Okay, I feel like this has come for a reason. I need to just give this a go’,”
In February it was announced by Warner Records that Leigh-Anne had signed a solo deal to release music.
The news was announced by Warner Records on Twitter, writing: “Delighted to welcome Leigh-Anne Pinnock to the Warner Records family!
“Sign up to her mailing list to hear about exciting news first!”
While there’s currently no news on when Leigh-Anne will release her solo music, Little Mix fans were quick to follow Leigh-Anne's Twitter account.
In December the Brit Award winning band announced they were taking a hiatus after their 2022 Confetti Tour wrapped in May.
Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade have been adamant that the tour is not a permanent goodbye and promised to be back on stage together as Little Mix one day in the future.
Perrie told The Sun in May: “Honestly, we haven’t even parted ways yet and we’re already talking about when we’re coming back! We’re like: ‘is two years away enough? Two and a bit years?’.”
We can't wait to hear Leigh-Anne's solo music!
