Jesy Nelson ‘delays release of debut single so P Diddy can cameo in music video’

Jesy Nelson has reportedly delayed the release of her debut single so that P Diddy can appear in the music video.

The Sun reported that fans will have to wait a little longer to hear the long-awaited single Boyz from the 30-year-old singer, which samples P Diddy's classic Bad Boy 4 Life.

Speaking to the publication, a source said: “Boyz has been pushed back by a couple of weeks due to unforeseen circumstances but it now means that P Diddy himself will make a cameo in the clip, which is incredible for Jesy.”

They added: “Jesy is determined for everything to be perfect and won’t cut corners when it comes to the release.

"The delay is not ideal as they had already started teasing the track on her socials, but Jesy and the team are making things work.

“The track is still planned to drop next month, though the second half is more likely – especially as releasing on September 10 would put her up against Ed Sheeran’s next single, so she wouldn’t stand a chance when it comes to the charts.”

Teasing the track, Jesy said: “This is the music that I’ve always wanted to make. I don’t think that anyone’s gonna expect this. This is the new chapter for me.”

The new song had been expected to have to go up against the new music from Jesy’s former band Little Mix, as Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock celebrate their tenth anniversary with the album Between Us.

Jesy left the band last December, citing the negative impact on her mental health.

At the time, she wrote on Instagram: “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 core of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.”

The Daily Star has approached Jesy's representatives for comment.
