Nicki Minaj Reloaded Underperforms … At #1!!!

nicki minaj cleavage roman reloaded album sales

Yeah, don't order those celebratory balloons just yet!!

While Nicki Minaj's sophomore album is expected to land at the top spot, with 200,000+ sold on track, the sales are still 40-50% lower than her freshman album's first week.

Umm… what gives??

Pink Friday sold an astonishing 375,000 during its debut. So even though 200k is amazing for Roman Reloaded (congrats gurl), something's not sitting right here!

What do U think it is??

    It's the fact that she sold out and the album as a whole is awful.



  2. 2

    She sucks and her 15 is almost up?

    with the exeption of a few , and i mean FEW songs, like one or two, the majority of her songs are horrible, not to mention she has gone completly pop and hardly raps anymore and it just sounds horrible , she cant sing with out the help of autotune.



  4. 4

    She sold-out to mainstream/pop and completely ditched the hip-hop scene. Also, she didnt' focus on any one particular single to promote the album..it was delayed, then stupid hoe came out, then starships, yet no starships video..her promo team sucked this time around.



  5. 5

    It's going to underperform because starships is cheesytarded and the beat is so everywhere. The sound of it should be a Ke$ha song, I might like it more if she did it because it IS way to pop for nicki. Then again I read in a magazine that she purposely made songs on Pink Friday pop influenced on purpose to sell more records. Sell out pick a genre.



  6. 6

    If by sell-out you other commenters mean that she turned herself into a blowup doll, then yea, I agree. She is a sell-out.

    It's a horrible album that has nothing but negative reviews. Was anyone expecting it to sell well?

    I am so disappointed in the album. I'll just keep listening to Pink Friday and pretend this album doesn't exist. Perfect examples when good artist go mainstream. Stop singing just rap.

    The album is so dissapointing, the single sucked, and she sold out. she's trying to be the next lady gaga and katy perry when she was doing Nicki MInaj so well.

    Trash. next!

    She sucks, She's FUGLY, She's a Douche and She Looks like the most studpidest person in the world, She looks like a HO. Can't she go crawl up a hole and die. Bi+ch



  11. 11

    lil' Kim? is that you?



  12. 12

    I never heard this chick before, I don't really listen to pop. Caught her on idol and she was barely walking around. Not stumbling like she was intoxicated, but some boring track like usual was blaring in the back ground and you could hear her talking quietly in the mic, but it was SOOOO low budget. I thought she was a big star? It's like it was produced by a basketball wife?

    she sucks … thats why … it all started with that HORRID VMA performance .. she lost me there …. if you can't sing without auto tune YOU CANT SING HUNNY



  14. 14

    girl needs to stop it with that STUPID face she always makes - she's not "quirky", i mean really - google her pics from before all of this lady gaga/katy perry wannabe bullshit. yeah. exactly.

  15. bcm75 says – reply to this

    she might be losing some of her urban fans and street cred… but more than that i think she is a singles artist… like rihanna and katy perry, among others. most of her album tracks are selling individually. taylor swift is the biggest exception when it comes to selling both singles and albums in huge numbers.



  16. 16

    Maybe she needs to stop trying to be white and go back to being herself and rap again? She looks and sounds ridiculous. I used to like her before she turned into a Lady Gaga wannabe… Now she annoys me.



  17. 17

    P.S. What is going on with her wig? It looks like a blonde version of Kim K's hair. Where's her forehead? lol



  18. 18

    To be honest, I tried to listen to her new album, but I couldn't bring myself to finish it. I think I stopped at the fifth song. I couldn't take it anymore. She really did sell out. I used to like her because she was somewhat different, but now after Stupid Hoe and that crazy Grammy performance, I lost respect for her. She should go back to rapping. Dare I say it, but can Lil' Kim or Missy Elliot come back and make music?

    cuz she sucks…. like she is suppose to be a rapper but looks like she is being produced by the same people that procuded S Club 7



  20. 20

    Re: ed69 – hahaha



  21. 21

    I cant take her seriously because I dont know who she is trying to be and also all I ever see her doing in videos and on tv is trying to grind her crotch into the camera and be about as raunchy and profane as she can possibly be without getting kicked off tv. I have no respect for her for that. It's sad how many female artists think they have to be profane, obscene, raunchy, and pornographic to be liked and accepted. That does nothing to further the cause of women's rights. What is our goal in life supposed to be? Be a "ho"! How inspiring!

    Because everyone torrented/downloaded it illegally.

    Maybe people finally are realizing that Black Gaga is a talentless woman.



  24. 24

    The cd is terrible. Nothing edgy or new, just blah. I am personally tired of the schtick. Really disappointed that as a strong, creative woman she chose to duet with the beater of women Chris Brown. Every other male artist was busy? What message are you sending?



  25. 25

    she's ridiculous with all of her "look at me, look at me" antics. People are sick of that crap, and it obviously shows. Too much over exposure made those 15 minutes run out quick. On to the next pop tart.

    What you dumbasses failed to realize is that she is still number one in terms of sales. The majority of the album are throwback tracks similar to her mixtape days and are very edgy and different. From day one she has presented herself as a multi-facited artist with "split personalities." Shes simy exoloring and showing off the many sides of nicki. You cant be too surprised that someone who is the self-proclaimed barbie is exploring the pop realm. She should want to give young kids something to listen too also. Just check out the episode of her on ellen too see how diverse of a fan base she has. HATERS

    The time of release plays an important part in sales numbers. Nicki Minaj release Pink Friday the week of Black Friday in the United States and that is one of the busiest shopping days in the country. Sales are always higher that week. 200K is very solid for an album not released during a holiday. This is why Rihanna has no #1 album in the U.S. - she releases them during the holiday weeks when holiday albums sell the most. Had she released in Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, or pretty much any month other than November (which she always does) and December, she'd have at least 3 #1 albums by now (Rated R, Loud, and Talk That Talk). None of you people understand anything about the music industry, so stop with worthless posts like these trying to downplay someone's success.



  28. 28

    Good! Her stupid Grammy performance was enough for me. Why buy her songs if they play them on the radio? That's cause I don't listen to the radio! No, I'll support true artist not skanky trash!



  29. 29

    Re: pradagirl7 – Bitch I bought it!



  30. 30

    God can this nasty attention seeking hoodrat put her disgusting stretch marked tits away?



  31. 31

    She released it as a re-release instead of a brand new album. Why does everyone have to follow GaGa's Fame/Fame Monster concept? It only worked for her!



  32. 32

    Re: BeezJay – For one, it's a series of albums a la Jay-Z's Blueprint series or Lil Wayne's Tha Carter series, not a re-release. Another thing, Lady GaGa didn't popularize re-releasing albums. Mariah Carey did it with The Emancipation of Mimi and it proved popular and scored her her 17th #1 single (Don't Forget About Us). Rihanna also did it with Good Girl Gone Bad (which scored her her 3rd and 4th #1 singles Take a Bow and Disturbia). Lady GaGa scored no #1s from her re-release and her album never reached the top spot on the Billboard 200 so I don't see how you can say it actually worked for her anyway when others have done it better.



  33. 33

    This chick definitely bleaches her skin, she gets a shade lighter each year. Surprised no one has mentioned that.



  34. 34

    if she put out a straight rap album i would like her again i thought this was gonna be rap i didnt expect hardcore rap but at least her giving it to the other bitches,but no shes talking about all her performances or basicly giving a recap on what she did this last year " 2012 im at the superball" yea i saw that bitch it wasnt about you boo boo and "Im at the award shows with the vatican" i think i can speak for most of us when i say that shit was dumb just dumb and its like bubble gum pop shit with a little a very little rap mixed in i dont like most of the songs i should take the ablum back and tell them i was not satisfied with nickis wack ass can i have my money baaaaacccckkkkk bbbbbiiiiiiittttttcccchhhhhh!!<nicki minaj voice!



  35. 35

    oh and i for got to ask why does she call herself a female rapper?
    and why does she say " i am the female weezy" bitch wayne is the female weezy!!!



  36. 36

    HER MUSIC SUCKS



  37. 37

    thats still pretty good…. higher debut then katy and rihannas albums.



  38. 38

    Who is that clown?



  39. 39

    Maybe because it leaked a full week before it officially dropped. They should have released it when it leaked, instead of waiting that whole time. Who wants to pay for something if they have already downloaded it?



  40. 40

    Re: Plentii – I've definitely noticed that. It's obvious she wants to be white.



  41. 41

    Yeah, Nicki completely sold out. She was cool when she first came out as she was different from everyone else at the time. Now her music sucks. I'm so bored of all this dance music. It all sounds the same!



  42. 42

    Re: it-is-what-it-is – I don't think she even "has" a forehead haha. That's why she's always wearing wigs with bangs that start on top of her head!



  43. 43

    Basically people where excited to see a female artist in the spolight again so they bought her 1st album. But soon they realized she was trash and wont be fooled again. I called my local radio station n cussed them out for playing that Beez in the trap garbage tryin to force it down peoples throats. Can't wait for Missy elliot to come out to show this clown how hip-hop-pop is really done. True rap kool-aid. Not that drink-aid Nicki pushing.



  44. 44

    i think everyone hates her i think shes disgusting and i think shell blame u when her time is over
