  • When you are getting older, peace of mine is something luxurious. Not all can have it. If you can, grab it.

  • Dear! I has been waiting for this video for so long. :)

  • Awwww liaaammmm

  • I don't understand that she left Little Mix due to the abuse of social media pressure of being in a girl group. Now she'll have no support system but will still be dealing with the same pressures of the industry and comparisons to other female artists. I hate to say it, the music industry is vicious. Being solo won't make it better. I wish her well. She's beautiful and very talented.

  • We love you Jesy , we hope you keep doing what you doing again we love you 🥰 you mean everything to us stay healthy and safe

  • There's just a sense of freedom when watching her now. Her skin glows differently too. Do your thing Jese!

  • Jesy is so gorgeous. I love her hair in this video.

  • She just seems so happy and I'm so happy for her.

  • omg Jesy i love you so much

  • ❤️

  • Love you Jesy I hope you're okay ❤

  • I just love her, love, love, love! 😍💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  • Jesy is really goin' solo, i'm gonna wait for her single featuring little mix^^

  • She's a really lovely person..🥰

  • We love you Jesy Nelson❤

  • I am sorry if this is rude but I think thats u should come back to LM

  • Jesy you are just great ❤️❤️❤️

  • im happy for u but how could u move on so fast

  • No one wants her solo stuff

  • I wonder if she will ever comeback? (?)


  • Such an intelligent, gorgeous and inspirational woman filled with potential ❤ ✨

  • Anyone else feel like her whole little mix career was a lie???

  • She smiles now when she gets interviewed , you can see she’s finally happy. ♥️

  • queen of prioritising mental health

  • Minger


  • Please get help! I finally had to make that call. Dealing with childhood trauma 6th move in 5 years grandmother died etc etc. I know I couldn't handle it anymore. Getting the right medication and talking about things saved my life!

  • I will support your solo career, but i won't leave the Mixers community. If someone did made threat against you or Little Mix, I'm still here for all of you.

  • I really love jesy💕

  • Awwww yay! she's bck

  • Im so happy for her. But why it hurts so bad watching her alone.

  • I love her so much, she’s amazing and I’m excited for her


  • Looking gorgeous, fresh and ready, and HAPPY So proud of you

  • are jade and jesy sisters

  • I can't stop thinking about how that's not as true as she wants us to think... She already confessed how jealous she was about her band mates, and we all know how that affects her self esteem, ok. But... Leaving a band because she felt awful with herself, and then launching a solo career almost immediately?! When no one was expecting? Well, that doesn't smell good to me, it seems like some thing's being hidden from us 🤔 maybe I'm being unfair but........ She didn't convince me that much. Oh well 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Wow the difference in her. She seems happier and more focused on the right things. I wish her all the luck in the world as she comes across a beautiful soul. Still love little mix too 😍😍

  • 😁😁😁😁😁😁🥲😁😁😁😁😁😁😆😆😆🎊

  • I wish her all the best 💚

  • I ᴄᴀɴɴᴏᴛ ᴡᴀɪᴛ ᴛᴏ ʟɪsᴛᴇɴ (ᴀɴᴅ sᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ) ʜᴇʀ ᴍᴜsɪᴄ ❤️❤️

  • Let's take a moment to admire this great lady right here!! She sure isn't perfect, no one is. But just because you aren't perfect doesn't mean you're bad. And also she looks so cool in this hairstyle I'm literally drooling lol. I fuckin love her accent and her voice. Lysm Jesy 💓

  • I'm glad she's back in music! Get it girl!!!💋

  • Jest, you are gorgeous inside and out. No one else’s opinion matters but yours.

  • been.❤️

  • You are such a strong person, we are so proud of you! Thank you forsharing you're thoughts even though it must be very hard to talk about all this. I hope you are happier now

  • I was expecting that she would say Friendship when she was ask what the best part of being in the girl group. Nonetheless, I'm rooting you the best of luck Jesy. You deserve what you become right now. Hope you're doing fine.

  • Jesy, are you going to make your own HRwiki channel

    • She seems so happy now. I’m glad for her and wish her nothing but the best 💜

  • Showing the other side of such a sad situation 👏👏👏, so happy you had the support you needed and finally asked for it. This beautiful woman is such a talented, bright star, and other people tried to put out her light... but they failed. Excited for her future. Stay safe stay well everyone x

  • Is it just me or with this look she perfectly matches the original description of Hermione Granger from Harry Potter books?

  • "Mah 3 girls around me "... My heart..

  • 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍 Also me lowkey thinking she used an excuse to get out of the group for her solo career. Note: Everyone is allowed to have an opinion .

    • @S K go hiss at other people. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion. The opinion might be wrong or subjectically right. But I'm still allowed to have my opinion. You don't have a say in that. And by the power vested in me you may get lost and f*** off

    • Lol... Don't you people have any better excuse before coming at someone.

  • She was asked about the best part of being in the girl group and I’m disappointed she didn’t say acquire three best friends were the best thing


  • I’m so happy that Jesy did what was right for her.

  • Love you jessy ! Cant wait to hear ur new single

  • For anyone struggling with mental health. Please seek professional help, you won’t regret it 😘

  • I’m so sad that she isn’t a part of LM, but this is the happiest I had ever seen her. And that is enough for me

  • health.

  • can anyone please tell me her real insta and twitter please

    • Instagram: @jesynelson she doesn't have a Twitter account because when she was in Little Mix any of them used to use it individually

  • I wonder if she still talks to the other girls

  • I love Jesy so much and I hope she does whatever she thinks is best for her

  • She seems so happy now. I’m glad for her and wish her nothing but the best 💜

    • so long makes u very at the point u do cry an alot of other emotions u don't even know u had or have! So this is the best advice any one can give anbyeah 100% we do need to

  • love her positivity

  • So happy that you look so happy x so at ease, my daughter has followed you from the beginning and still adores you at 22.

  • Little Mix is in my opinion, the healthiest girl group there is. I am happy for Jesy, I hope they all continue to uplift each other whether they're in the band or not.

  • we love you Jesy, you do not have to worry if they compare you with the others you are perfect like this. I m happy that you are better and I wish you the best or, and remember, always be yourself

  • Thank you so much Jesy! I love you so much! We love you! You do genuinely make me feel happy and have such positive advice. ;)

  • It was nice a good interview

  • Jesy Nelson, in my opinion, is literally the best singer ever. I love her (literally I'd date her) and I can't wait to here her own music and see her at her OWN concert and if she doesn't win a Brit imma die

  • I LOVE LOVE her comments on tools she was spot on. If you are happy and content with your life why will you have time lashing out on someone and just being plain nasty...they definatepy have deep scars that they need help with

  • I am sooo happy shes continuing to release music because I just loove her voice so much. Have followed the first since day one so my heart broke when she left little mix because I thought she was leaving music all together even though I still would have supported her devision whatever best for her metal health. But the fact she is continuing with a solo career im even more happ to still hear her beautiful voice!

  • Please come back Jesy to little mix! But you don't have to come back, I just really want you to come back because you are amazing and Jesy remember keep focusing on your mental health!

  • Hola🥺alguien sabe donde está en Español??

  • I can she how jesy is so much happier now love you so much jesy 🥰 we will always support you 😘 From Philippines here

  • OMG i love her sooooo much!!!! I mean can u imagine what she’s been through ... blessing to u my love !!!! So exciting to hear some new music shit in the future! If u would do a early listing party .... I would be down for it 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽😋😋

  • Pm

  • She is absolutely 💯 right on that emotion we are human an we do hold it in, an then she also right the best mental health is talking to some I am doing that now holding it in for so long makes u very at the point u do cry an alot of other emotions u don't even know u had or have! So this is the best advice any one can give anbyeah 100% we do need to train our mind to think positive positive because it is very easy to think negative about our self as humans so again ty 😊 for sharing this, this here is empowering woman to grow in our self an not just woman but all of the human race!

  • Can we notice that her makeup has changed for a more natural look?? She no need to try to be on the spot now is only her

  • Thanks Jesy ❤ I turned 50 a few months ago and sat here crying because I've made a hash of my life mostly through my anxiety and depression and now fibromyalgia. A lot of young people will look at you and think they can make it and they probably will because your their Role Model xxx

  • Is she still moaning?

  • Happy for you and we will expect many things from u

  • God I love this woman...

  • i just hope she is still in contact w/ the 3 girls....bc it doesn't look like it...

    • she's still in contact with her 3 girls (and ofc, their best friends).

    • jesy loves girls more than u stop it

  • Jesy has been my role model since 2011 so I will always support her!

  • I stan this queen I can’t wait to see her future music and other endeavors

  • you are an inspiration i thought you was the best girl in the band the prettiest and the nicest loved you from audition,s on x facter xxx

  • We love and always suport you to be happy 🥰🥰🥰🥰

  • She's spot on about internet trolls. Also I cannot WAIT for her solo stuff ✨

  • obviously we only see what is shown to us but you know they never did a statement together or anything like that...

  • True mixers will support Jesy's solo career! Can't wait to hear her new music ❤️❤️❤️

  • It's such a good thing that she uses her voice & platform to advocate for mental health! Love the part where she talks about the trolls. People who spend their energy into trying to bring other people down and just like to be mean for no reason: these are the ones who truly need help.

  • @SimonBoyle87 guys its the one who writed shit about jesy and the girls. we found it . lets cancel him . again simon things. lets go to twitter and cancel him

    • Miss you and will never stop supporting you and Little Mix

  • @SimonBoyle87 guys its the one who writed shit about jesy and the girls. we found it . lets cancel him . again simon things. lets go to twitter and cancel him

  • The part where she talks what advice she'd give to her younger self made me so emotional 😭😭😭 Jesy is so strong, she's been through a lot and I'm soooo happy that she seems to be in a better place and is looking foward to this new phase in her life & career. She deserves all the success and happiness in the world!

  • I'm so happy you're happy. The change in your face and expressions and voice from last year is incredible. So proud of you and happy for you ♥️

  • I'm so glad that you are doing great. I'll support you forever. I love you Jesy.

  • Glad she's happy, Its clear she doesn't like pop music and now get to do what she wants, RnB. I just hope she learns to love herself and take responsibility for her own triggers and insecurities instead of projecting them onto the other girls. Also a bit of empathy towards those offended by the black fishing and "Nword" situations would be nice instead of blocking them.

  • Liam being the kindest heart that he is😭❤️

  • I knew it, she just wanna go SOLO why using mental health to get away from your group? Cause girl for sure you'd still gonna get bully 🤭
