With speculation already underway about whether "American Idol" winner Kris Allen's future in the music industry will go boom or bust, the singer wants everyone to know that he's defining success on his own terms.

"The only thing I really want to do is just be respected in the music industry," Allen tells "Whether that means selling albums or winning Grammys or just people liking my music, that's all I really want to do."

Allen may not be selling albums just yet, but he certainly is selling singles. His recording of "Heartless" was at No. 4 on iTunes Top Songs chart Friday afternoon (May 22), and his first single, "No Boundaries," which was co-written by "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi, tops the list.
