Jesy Nelson wiped her entire Instagram feed in the run-up to the release of her new music album, but now she’s back with an absolute banger of a debut snap.
The former Little Mix member, who parted ways with the X-Factor-born band in late 2020, shared a polaroid-style image of herself in a tiny bikini, simply captioning it with the name of her first solo song “Boyz”.
The majority of fan comments are about the new track, but several have drawn a comparison between the star and noughties icon Christina Aguilera.
“Christina Aguilera during the Stripped era vibes,” says one, while another responds: “Is Strippedtina with a modern twist.”
A third writes: “This very Christina Aguilera ‘dirrty’ hair and I am living for this look!!”
When Jesy’s fans say “Stripped era”, they’re referencing Xtina’s 2002 studio album Stripped. It has some iconic tracks that all millennials will remember with nostalgia, like Can’t Hold Us Down and Dirrty – where she wore her waist-length blonde and black hair in feathery, braided waves.
Jesy’s hair in the newly-uploaded grid image does indeed ring a bit of Dirrty, as she’s sporting a similar light and dark hair colour, and there appears to be a few braids added to really give a retro look.
Xtina isn’t the only noughties icon Jesy is being compared to. Fans have also clocked the singer’s patriotic Union Jack bikini and drawn a comparison to one very famous Spice Girls member – Geri Halliwell.
“You can’t deny her getup is 100% inspired by Ginger Spice,” comments one.
“We going Geri,” says another.
Our favourite comment though comes from one user who made a funny Love Island comparison, writing: “Lol thought this was a love island pic at first with the bikini and men with weights.”

Jesy has been experimenting with plenty of new looks in the past few months. In May she debuted an edgy bob which showed off her gorgeous features. Before that, she favoured a lengthy ginger look. She also channelled Game of Thrones' Daenerys with a dramatic braided bleach blonde hair transformation earlier this year.
We can’t wait to see what she does next.
