Nicki Minaj scores her 2nd number one album in a row although Pink Friday- Roman Reloaded was met with harsh criticm by music critics.
In just it’s first week the album has moved 253,000 in the first week securing the Number 1 spot on the U.K. charts which in itself is a record because no other female rapper has ever done this.. That does not come as a surprise at all..
It looks as though Nicki Minaj is still breaking records..
Coming into the industry and breaking down all the doors she set out to conquer and open for future rap Diva’s Nicki knew this album would sale very well dispite what critics had to say..
She told DJ Clue -
This album is gonna sell so much more than Pink Friday. Ask me this question two years from today. With me, I’m never about first week and all that. I like to look at it for the long haul. I’ma travel, I’ma meet my beautiful babies, my Barbz everywhere, and this is my first time I’m gonna get to do a world tour, so the album is gonna do its thang.
While Nicki’s album is being brandished by many as a ‘Pop” slbum Nicki says that it’s a Hip Hop Album with some extra’s at the end.
“I like variety. And part of the reason I did so many songs is I know my hip-hop fans need their full–almost–album. So, if you think about it, if I were to do an album like most people with 13 songs, then those 13 songs are all hip-hop. Then, towards the end, I said, “All right. now that that album is done Imma do my dance stuff and the poppy stuff.
“The album alone–just the sequence, the order and the genre–that alone is a conversation piece. People keep talking about it. I didn’t know it was gonna be such a big deal. I just, you know, all the different personalities that I have, and I wanted to share it with the world.
