Leigh-Anne Pinnock is reportedly working with hip-hop producer Chauncey Hollis to create her first solo music.

The 30-year-old Little Mix singer is delving into the hip-hop by working with the chart-topping producer, who goes by the name of Hit-Boy, according to reports.

The songwriter is a heavyweight in the genre, having worked with Kanye West, Beyonce, Rihanna and Jay-Z in the past.

According to The Sun, Leigh-Anne recorded several tracks with the hitmaker in LA earlier this year.

A source told the publication: ‘Leigh-Anne has been working out what sort of music feels best for her, and she’s been making great progress.’

‘A lot of the songs have a heavy R&B vibe and others have strong hip-hop influences. It’s the music she listens to the most so it makes sense to follow that path.’

‘Leigh has great names working with her so she is on to a winner.’

Earlier this year, Leigh-Anne’s record label launched an investigation after an early demo of one of her songs was leaked.

Warner Music acted fast in removing the links to the recording, and the clip was replaced with a notice of copyright claim by the owner.

It read: ‘This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.’

A source told The Sun: ‘This track is an extremely early demo. Bosses acted quickly and are determined to get to the bottom of how it appeared online because only a handful of people had heard it.

‘They are taking it extremely seriously. Leigh-Anne is working hard to give fans the music they deserve.’

Since Little Mix’s split, Leigh-Anne has been busy writing solo music with Tayla Parx, one of the co-writers on the girl group’s hit single Sweet Melody.

The star – who has 10-month-old twins with fiancĂ© Andre Gray – is also reportedly set to drop her last name for her solo career.

The Shout Out To My Ex songstress has bought the domain Leigh-Anne.com, which is currently ‘under construction’.

It comes as Leigh-Anne is reportedly not only sinking her teeth into new music, but is also interested in writing a memoir. 

According to reports, she is negotiating a seven-figure book deal which will focus on her identity and her experiences in Little Mix.

The singer was said to have been spurred on by the success of her BBC Three documentary Race, Pop And Power and now wants to put pen to paper. 

A source told The Sun: ‘This is stuff she’s passionate about – it isn’t going to be an expose on life in a pop band, more an insight into her feelings about who she has become in that time, what she stands for and what she believes in.

‘The reaction to her documentary really spurred Leigh-Anne to want to do more. She knows her platform can help other people too and she wants to represent as many young women like her as she can.

‘This is about stepping out from a band and defining who she is going to be as an independent woman and as an artist going forwards. She’s very excited at the prospect of working on it and getting it out to fans.’

The insider added that Leigh-Anne has a ‘clear vision’ of where she would like her solo career to go and has already got a record deal.

She has also been working on her acting career, having recently starred in the Christmas film Boxing Day.
