Little Mix have reportedly hit back at their former band member Jesy Nelson in their new single, Cut You Off. In the new track, it has been reported that the trio sing about how it is “too late” for their friendship to be salvaged, adding that they “cut her off” to “protect their energy”.
Last week, the trio spoke about writing their new single on an Instagram Live chat.
The three women told their 14.9 million followers that the process was “like therapy”.
Jade Thirlwall said: “Cut You Off was written a couple of months ago in a session with Lost Boy and Lauren Aquilina.
“It was kind of like a therapy session writing Cut You Off actually.”
“I love Cut You off because it’s just a really good solid manic pop song,” Jade confessed.
Agreeing with her, Perrie Edwards added: “You let it all out and it’s a safe space.”
Their single is featured as a bonus track on their greatest hits album Between Us, which is set to be released next month.
However, some of the band’s fans believe that the name of the song and its lyrics are a swipe at Jesy.
Jade goes on to sing about how it’s “too late” for their friendship to be repaired, after seemingly asking whether the star is “happy now”.
She sings: “Don’t think I believe ya, is the grass out there really greener? Are you happy now?
“I know you think you’re all that, it’ll be so sweet when you crawl back, but it’s too late now.”
Jesy left the band last year after revealing that her time in the group had affected her mental health.
Earlier this week, the star released her debut single Boyz, which features Nicki Minaj and P Diddy.
Following the release, Jesy’s former bandmates appear to have unfollowed her on social media.
The move came a day after the star hit back at allegations of blackfishing in her new music video, stating she’s “very aware that I’m a white British woman”.
Critics noted the star’s very tanned complexion before accusing her of blackfishing.
