Little Mix appeared to take a hit with their former bandmate Jesy Nelson in their brand new song Cut You Off, where they sing about cutting someone off to “protect their energy.”
Little Mix appeared to take a hit with their ex-bandmate Jesy Nelson.
The trio are preparing to release a new song called Cut You Off, which explains how girls should “protect their energy” and would gladly cut anyone who didn’t add to their positivity.
They gave fans the name of the track on an Instagram Live last week, where Jade Thirlwall described writing the track as “like therapy.”
“Cut You Off was written a few months ago during a session with Lost Boy and Lauren Aquilina. It was kind of like a therapy session writing Cut You Off actually,” she told fans.
“I love Cut You because it’s just a really good solid manic pop song.”
While Perrie Edwards added, “You let it all hang out and it’s a safe space.”
Some of the lyrics have now been revealed by The Sun and fans are convinced the song is about Jesy, who left the girl group last year after saying her membership in Little Mix took its toll on her health. mental.
In the song, the girls sing, “How did we get here? We used to be so cool. Nothing lasts forever but I really thought we could.
“I know there will be tears but it’s worth a broken heart. If I can’t protect my energy, I have to cut you off.”

The new track comes after Jesy gave an interview explaining how there were “disagreements” between her and her band mates over how they wanted to carve out a career.
“I had times and times when I really liked it, but I felt like there were a lot more times where I was sad than happy,” she told the Reign With Josh Smith podcast.
“I don’t think people realize how hard it is to be in a girl group. There are a lot of things that come with it that people don’t know.
“And obviously I can’t make my own decisions. Three people also have to agree, so there would always be disagreements on some things.”

And in another scathing interview, Jesy – who will be releasing her first solo single Boyz this month – said she hasn’t spoken to her former band mates since deciding to quit the band.
She told the Guardian: “No, not as much. Not now. I think we all need time. It’s a great thing that has happened.
“I think they’re as sick as a three. They always do it for the power of the girls. I still love them in pieces. They were like my sisters.”
