Former Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards — who now goes by just Perrie — is gearing up to release her debut solo LP. The singer announced the title of her first solo single, “Forget About Us,” on Tuesday (March 12). “‘Here’s the truth of it…’ Wow [crying eyes emoji] it’s happening! My first solo single ‘Forget About Us’ is coming,” the singer wrote.

While Perrie had not revealed any additional information about the LP at press time, Official Charts 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. Though the song titles are being kept secret, the album’s first single was co-written by Ed Sheeran and was described as sounding like a “road trip with your besties, windows down, belting the chorus at the top of your voice” kind of track with a “Kelly Clarkson-meets-Katy Perry” vibe; Sheeran also co-wrote a second song on the album.

The album also features a collaboration with RAYE, who took home the album of the year award at the March 2nd BRIT Awards for her debut album, My 21st Century Blues. 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 put together 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, with the remaining members going on hiatus in Dec. 2021; their final show, an April 2022 gig at the O2 Arena in London, was livestreamed.
