Tinashe won’t be satisfied until she sees insurmountable mainstream success.

Her definition of it isn’t being the wealthiest or richest in music. Rather, her success is measured by upping herself.

“I don’t really care about making a lot of money,” she tells here about commercial success, “but I care about being the most successful. I don’t necessarily consider dollar signs the most successful. You shouldn’t get into the music business because you’re trying to get rich – there are so many career goals that are way easier, way less work, way less stress, and you’ll make way more money.”

They mention if she feels pressure aligning with producer Dr. Luke, who’s crafted music for superstars like Katy Perry and Britney Spears.

“In a way, yeah, because you know they’ve done so many amazing things,” she tells me. “But I’m not easily intimidated. I’m never satisfied, even though I’m super-happy with the success I’ve had. I’m always thinking, ‘How can I take this to the next level? How can I step this up?’ With them, it was the opportunity to be like, ‘This is when I make my number one.’”

Speaking of Britney… Tinashe longs for the good ol’ days and hopes she can bring that electric excitement back to pop music.

“Growing up, that performance element was half the reason I loved music!” she exclaims. “Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Britney… I loved watching videos and learning the choreography. I want little girls to see my video and say, ‘Oh my God, I wanna learn those steps!’ All their friends would have a sleepover and try to figure out the routine, like I used to!”
