Oh no! Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s first solo track since the disbanding of Little Mix has been leaked online
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 fiancé 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.
