Jesy Nelson is launching the ‘next chapter’ of her career by signing to new management.
Some of YMU’s music clients include Common, Take That, Steve Aoki, James Arthur and Years & Years, and they have bases in both the UK and America.
The publication quoted the Shout Out To My Ex singer saying in a statement: ‘I am so excited to join YMU and can’t wait to start my next chapter.’
CRO Mary Bekhait said: ‘Jesy has enjoyed incredible success as a recording artist and performer and is well placed to further her remarkable career.
‘She is a hugely talented, versatile and authentic artist with a strong creative vision, and we are looking forward to helping her realise that.’

It comes after the X Factor winner revealed on Instagram that she had met up with Brit-nominated producer Patrick Jordan-Patrikios to work on a mystery project.
Patrikios had previously worked with Little Mix on their albums Glory Days and LM5.
She has also been working with multi-platinum selling producer and songwriter Sunny, posting a snap on social media of herself in the studio with the producers at mixing decks.
Revealing her decision to leave the group, which was formed on The X Factor in 2011, Jesy stated she needed time out to focus on her mental health.

Jesy explained in a statement at the time ‘The past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life…
She continued: ‘There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focussing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.
‘The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.’
Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade are continuing on as a three and are preparing to embark on their postponed Confetti tour in 2022.
