The Dance Moms alum decided to drop the song on her 16th birthday!

“Birthdays are usually focused on the presents you receive. However, I wanted to do something a little different this birthday,” Nia told us. “I am so proud and happy to share my new music and video with my fans, family and friends. I appreciate people supporting me over the years and I want to give a gift back to everyone as a thank you. This is the perfect way to celebrate my birthday!”

Listen below and check out the rest of our interview with Nia! Stay tuned for the video too!

JJJ: Happy birthday! How are you celebrating?

Nia: Thank you! I’m throwing a really big party at Bucca Di Beppo and Mixology! There will be dinner, dancing, henna, a candy bar, a caricaturist, performers…so excited.

JJJ: This is your 16th birthday. Did you imagine having a huge Sweet 16 party when you were younger?

Nia: I always dreamt of turning 16 when i was younger so i could finally drive… but I don’t think I could have imagined a party like the one I’m having.

JJJ: What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten for your birthday?

Nia: That is a tough question!! I have received so many cool presents over the years, but I think one of my most memorable gifts was my dog, Henry Rhinestone!! I got Henry on my 11th birthday and it was a huge surprise from my parents and my friends on Dance Moms.

JJJ: Can you tell us the story behind the song?

Nia: “You Don’t Really Wanna” is a song about girl power! I love the mature sound and message of the song. The fact that a girl can call a boy out on his games and silly behavior makes a bold statement. I am proud that the song showcases a girl using her voice to tell a boy she is not going to put up with any games. I love the confidence and attitude in the song.

JJJ: Tell us about the music video. Are you happy how it turned out?

Nia: Mikey Minden was the director of the music video and we discussed every aspect of the video. The video is a collaboration of what we both envisioned for the song. I wanted the video to debut my new style especially because I have matured quite a bit since the last video Mikey directed for me. I am extremely proud of this video!

JJJ: What do you want fans can take away from the song?

Nia: The most important lesson fans can take away from the song would be to know your worth. The fact that a girl can tell a boy that she likes that she is not going to put up with his silly games is a strong and bold statement. You might like a boy but you need to love yourself first and not compromise your standards.

JJJ: Do you have a favorite lyric in the song that just really speaks to you?

Nia: It’s super simple, but I love the lyric, “I can’t wait for probably.” You hear that word all the time, and its often used so people can back out of whatever they are saying. By taking a stance and letting it be known that you can’t wait, it really shows empowerment.
