Pixie Lott has enjoyed success in the UK achieving a number one single and double platinum album sales, but it’s not enough for the popstar.
The 22-year-old, who appear on the next issue of Fiasco magazine, wants to crack America and play Madison Square Gardens like music legends before her.
In the accompanying interview she said: ‘The goal is to release this album in America definitely.’
She then added: ‘America is massive but I’m up for touring and seeing everywhere. I haven’t released there at all and (want to) play shows at Madison Square Garden. You gotta go for it!’
The singer has just finished filming her the new video for her next single which has surfaced online and the track itself is said to be called ‘Nasty’.
She tweeted after the shoot on Thursday: ‘Ahhhh loved today! Thank you sooo much everyone for all your hard work and hours :O!!! Can’t wait to see it #excited #ahhh.”
Talking to Fiasco she explains her as-yet-untitled third studio album, expected to follow in 2014, sees her going in a slightly different direction than her first two records.
She said: ‘My previous albums have been a mishmash but this is completely all that Motown sound and it gives me the opportunity to sing more, which is great’
And the Pixie confesses her new musical offering is very close to her heart.
She said: ‘My favourite songs are always ballads, I love singing them, listening to them. There’s one song that’s really personal.
‘My Nan passed away last year and I wrote about her, I’m going to be crying my eyes out every time I sing it.’
Her new single ‘Nasty’ was originally recorded by Christina Aguilera as a duet with Cee Lo Green for her Burlesque movie though was never officially released.
‘It’d be quite cool to get another No.1,’ pixie added. ‘It would be cool if that happened again but I don’t want to put pressure on myself.
But despite her ambition Pixie insists she doesn’t have a life plan. ‘Nah, I don’t have a plan like that. I just know what I want to achieve – to go for it until I can’t any more.’
Lott’s previous LP Young Foolish Happy peaked at number 18 in the UK in 2011 and spawned the number one single ‘All About Tonight’ and top ten hits ‘What Do You Take Me For?’ and ‘Kiss The Stars’.
