Is Her Minajesty being hand-fed some sour grapes by her beloved Barbs?!
Apparently, Nicki‘s latest album, the re-release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded called The Re-Up hasn’t exactly had the warm reception she had anticipated, as it’s suffered from low sales since it dropped on November 19th!
But according to her, it’s by no fault of her own!
During a recent interview, the Trinidadian rapper revealed that many retailers, like Target and Walmart, simply will NOT stock it!
“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. So Target and Walmart [are] not selling the album. And Target is actually my biggest retailer. They’ve sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever; thank you Target, but I wish you could have sold this one… it kind of sets you up to fail. At the end of the day I’m happy that I was able to put the music out. The real reason for me to put out The Re-Up is because I wanted to have a bridge between this time and the third album. I wanted people to have music that I really stand by.”
We’re glad to hear that at least she’s proud of what she accomplished, even though the rest seems to be out of her control!
Such a shame, though!
There’s some really good shiz on her latest, so we sincerely hope that Target and Walmart wise up and start stocking The Re-Up for the remainder of the holiday season!
The Barbs will be coming, whether they’re ready or not! LOLz!
*UPDATE* Target has released the following statement:
“We carry Nicki Minaj├óΓé¼Γäós re-released album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded Re-Up, at Target.com. Target will continue to evaluate guest demand to determine if the album will be carried in store at a future date.”
