Nicki Minaj is a bit upset that no shops in America will sell her ‘new’ album thing

Nicki Minaj has blamed the poor US sales for her ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up’ album on the fact that fans can’t actually buy it anywhere.

(Apart from on iTunes of course but that’s not the point right?)

“It’s hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn’t want to take a chance,” the ‘Stick In My Bun’ chanteuse explained to Power 105.1 (as quoted here).

“So Target and Walmart [are] not selling the album. And Target is actually my biggest retailer,” she continued. “They’ve sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever; thank you Target, but I wish you could have sold this one.”

“Best Buy only took limited because they’re like ‘Oh no, we want to play it safe,’ so it’s very difficult and it kind of sets you up to fail,” she moaned.

Perhaps it would help to release a proper new album album rather than one whose title suggests the majority of music is two years old but there you go.
