Ex-Little Mix Singer Perrie Edwards Starts Solo Career With ‘Forget About Us’

Perrie Edwards is making sure no one forgets her.

The former Little Mix star (who now goes by the name Perrie) takes a stride forward as a solo recording artist with “Forget About Us,” the first single lifted from her debut album.

While the British pop artist has kept schtum on information about the LP, Official Charts last month reported that she recently hosted a series of private listening parties for fans and industry pros in London where the singer previewed six new songs while telling the stories behind each.

“What I wanted to make sure of was that every song [from] a different genre had a sister or sibling on the album, so it’s not completely mismatched,” she tells the NME of her forthcoming album. “It makes sense when you listen to it as a body of work.” Expect it to include “Motowny” moments, “guitar-led ballads” and tracks with “Mariah Carey vibes”. 

The album also features Little Mix collaborator Jin Jin, and RAYE, who took home the album of the year award at the March 2nd BRIT Awards for her debut album, My 21st Century Blues.

And, as previously reported, Ed Sheeran co-wrote “Forget About Us,” a polished pop ballad with country sensibilities. A spokesperson for her label confirmed the details of the report from the listening event, though no release date has been announced for the album yet.

Perrie burst onto the music scene in 2011 when she, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Jesy Nelson were assembled on the British X Factor. The group released six albums before Nelson left the group in 2020 after the release of their final album, Confetti.

Little Mix made history at the 2021 Brit Awards when they became the first girl group in its four-decade-plus history to collect the best British group honor. Later that year, in December 2021, the remaining members went on hiatus; their final show, an April 2022 gig at the O2 Arena in London, was livestreamed.

Leigh-Anne has already made the solo leap, with 2023 debut single “Don’t Say Love” and followup “My Love,” a collaboration with Ayra Starr.
