Rapper Nicki Minaj is not a fan of Wal-Mart at this point in time. She recently gave an interview where she blamed the low sales of the re-release of Pink Friday 2: Roman Reloaded on Wal-Mart not carrying the album.
Before Nicki Minaj went postal on radio show, The Breakfast Club, for not having seen her new video, she was blasting Wal-Mart. The radio show hosts asked her if it was hard to pick up a copy of her album’s re-release and Nicki answered, “, “It is 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 is not selling the album. Target is actually my biggest retailer — they’ve always been my biggest retailer. They’ve sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever, so, thank you, Target. But I wish you could’ve sold this one.”
She went on to say, “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.”
Although she could blame the retailers for the the re-release tanking, we think it had more with the music not being that good. After all, a lot of artists say their freshest album is their greatest work only for it to sell triple steel.
Why do you think Nicki’s album isn’t selling?
