In the first shot, Nelson posted a pic of herself on set. The “Shout Out to My Ex” hitmaker stunned in a white bra top that displayed her decolletage and toned midriff. She paired that with matching bottoms that had long fringe hanging off them. Nelson is a fan of body art and displayed the numerous tattoos inked on her arms. The singer styled her long wavy brunette hair down with a side part and painted her nails with white polish.

Nelson was captured in front of a green screen in a filming studio. She was snapped sitting on the edge of a white surface with her hands placed beside her. Nelson raised her left leg and gazed in front of her with a fierce expression.

In the next slide, the X Factor winner attached a recent paparazzi photo of her on a night out. The entertainer wowed in a long-sleeved patterned crop top made out of silky material with matching high-waisted trousers.

For her caption, Nelson insisted that she looks nothing like herself in the first frame and admitted that she has gained some weight.

“I’m a stone heavier since making this video from eating whatever the f*ck I’ve wanted and living my best life,” she said.

“Remember we’re all human and we all have our good days and bad days and days when we feel banging and other days when we feel absolutely rotten and that’s ok.”

“You’re all beautiful in you’re own unique ways and there is no one in the world like you and that is what makes us special,” Nelson continued.

In the span of 15 hours, her post racked up more than 550,000 likes and over 8,000 comments, proving to be very popular with her 6.9 million followers.

“You’re so inspirational, I love you,” one user wrote.

“I love you so much, you look gorgeous no matter what!” another person shared.

“You are so beautiful,” remarked a third fan.
