In March, Thirlwall, 29, signed a solo deal with RCA Records and signed to Full Stop Management, which also represents Harry Styles and Lizzo. Yep, we'd say that's a pretty good start. While no release dates have been revealed or hints of the musical direction she's likely to go in, we can't help but dream of just how good a Thirlwall and Lizzo collab could be. We're manifesting it as we write.
There have also been teasers from DJs Calvin Harris and Jax Jones. As Harris announced his long-awaited new album, "Funk Wav Bounces Vol 2.", on Instagram, Thirlwall was one of the first to comment, writing "We're ready" with a flamingo emoji, leading fans to speculate about that collab is in the works. While Jones told The Sun, "I was in the studio with Jade and she is mega-cool and super-talented. She is also such fun to be around. We wrote something really cool so hopefully that can come out too."
We also think there could be more TV work in the pipeline. She has previously fronted her own series for MTV Digital called "Served! With Jade Thirlwall," where she competed with drag queens to cook dinner.
And she launched an eyeshadow palette with Beauty Bay last year full of bold, bright colours that oozed sass. We know we'd love to see more in the beauty sphere from her.
When she's not performing on stage, it's likely you'll find her hanging in her own bar. She owns Arbeia in her home town of South Shields, too. Giving us Girlboss vibes, Thirlwall, who is dating Rizzle Kicks's Jordan Stephens, is sure to be kept busy with her solo career and business ventures.
