Nicki Minaj Pushes ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ to April

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is breaking hearts this Valentine’s Day. The “Super Bass” rapper has delayed the release of her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Originally scheduled to drop on February 14, it will now arrive on April 3, she announced via Twitter.

“New Album Date: April 3rd. Pink Friday: ROMAN RELOADED. But have no fear. Tons of surprises before then ;). Love Always, HB,” Nicki told her Barbz.

The album has spawned the singles “Roman in Moscow” and “Stupid Hoe,” for which a Hype Williams-directed video premiered on Friday.

Nicki hinted at a surprise guest on the follow-up to her 2010 debut Pink Friday. “Just got some heron from one of ur fave artists. In the studio shakin my fuckin head right now. WOW. Roman Reloaded,” she tweeted.

To promote the release, she will perform a new song live at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on February 12 and travel overseas to London (Feb. 19-25), Paris (Feb. 26-27), Berlin (Feb. 28), and Tokyo (March 1-4).

    @Yeah, Stupid Hoe and Roman in Moscow were two whack singles…. She realised that no one wants to hear a whole album dedicated to dissing Lil’ Kim. Nicki needs to get a life.

    @andy, Buzz singles turn into real singles, she saw that nobody was paying attention so she had to push the album back. Due to lack of success. I guareenteed those songs will be on the deluxe.

    This had to be done. Stupid Hoe and Roman in Moscow FLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOPED badly. Feb 14 is literally in 4 weeks. First week sales would have been low.
    I hope her album is better than these two singles because i dislike the singles with a passion.
    I hope ego hasn’t watered down her lyrics.
    Try again Nicki.

    [Reply]

  15. sigh

    Her singles, SH & RIM, are performing horribly. But this happens every album – she always gets saved by her features, other people’s co-signs, and songs that other people have creative control over. Her first single ‘Massive Attack’ failed miserably, but she was saved by Ester Dean and ‘Super Bass’. Now it looks like she’ll be saved by this Madonna feature and the David Guetta track.

    I guess.

    Mike Reply:

    @sigh, She only did good with Pink Friday because the hype around her (which expectations she didn’t meet) and Taylor Swift singing SuperBas..

    [Reply]

    sigh Reply:

    @Mike, Right. If she really wants to be this ‘pop superstar’, then she needs to quit trying to play up to the hood chicks who bootleg her music and cater to the 18-25 Caucasian consumer group. Focus on tracks with Madonna, David Guetta …. make a song with Gwen Stefani. IDK. But yeah; most of her success has been luck, IMO.

    I’m beginning to think these music websites are paying people to comment stupid shit because it’s like hearing a broken record when a hip-hop album is pushed back and the release of the first two singles.

    First off, real hip hop is no longer commercial yet rappers still feel obligated in giving a song that is not an obvious pop hit to appease fans. Hence the reason why Nicki released “Stupid Hoe” and “Roman in Moscow.” Of course these songs are not meant to be pop hits. They are their to wet the appettitte of the fans who have been with her from the beginning. Stupid Hoe is basically Itty Bitty Piggy 2.0 and I love it for its zaniness and randomness. I swear kids today can’t appreciate the fun of something left of center. It has to be a big ass chorus sung by Justin Beiber in order for them to like it.

    Second, I’m pretty sure Nicki has a big pop hit that is ready to be released to appease you “pop” Nicki fans and the rest of the masses who only know her for “Super Bass” and the likes.

    Seriously, you people do this shit every time an artists starts another cycle for a new album. It’s like clockwork.

    OMG it’s a flop. OMG I don’t understand. OMG what are they wearing. OMG where is the hit.

    You guys sound like dumb wanna be music executives.

    Not surprised. I’m guessing because the singles aren’t doing to well, she’s making the album from scratch again. Probably will make Super Bass 2.0. SMH..I want real hip hop to come back…the times of Missy Elliot, Biggie, 2pac, Nas and Kim when artists didnt feel the need to have to crossover.

    Haters will always be hating but it’s all good. Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion. But, on another note! I knew Nicki would push the release date back but I understand because we all know she likes to make sure her shit’s perfect! It’ll be worth the wait. Definitely excited for this album! PS. I wonder if the special guest is Madonna on the album in exchange for Nicki featuring on her upcoming track! Hmm, we’ll see!

  29. Phoenix_Wright

    SMART decision. Honestly the album was coming too soon. Sure she released singles more than a month before release but they haven’t been able to do much on the charts yet. pushing it back about 2 months could either help or hurt the sales but it provides more time for promotion, and finalizing.

    ugh, for the last ummp somethin time, Roman In Moscow and Stupid Hoe are not singles from her album! her 1st single has not dropped yet and i’m guessing her 1st single is what she’s gonna be performing on the Grammy’s! as a true fan of Nicki Minaj, i know she can bring something better to the table but with everyone saying her career is over and what not is very INVALID and i just feel like if you haven’t liked Nicki from the jump, why are you even here. only her TRUE fans understand the music like “Roman In Moscow and Stupid Hoe” and i just feel like if you haven’t been riding with her since the beginning you can’t start now! 4.3.12 <<—— Pink Friday : Roman Reloaded
