Nicki Minaj’s ‘Roman Reloaded’ Rockets to Top of Albums Chart

Nicki Minaj

All hail Nicki Minaj. The hip-hop queen paints the charts pink with her sophomore album, which debuts at No. 1 this week.

Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded lands on top of the Billboard 200 after selling 253,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The star-studded set, which features Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, and Nas, marks the Young Money rapper’s second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Her platinum debut Pink Friday opened at No. 2 in December 2010, selling 375,000 copies. It later climbed to No. 1 in February 2011.

A grateful Nicki took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support. “I’d like to thank you for making Pink Friday: ROMAN RELOADED #1 in the UK, US, Canada, and Japan. #LOVE,” she tweeted.

The album features the RedOne-produced single “Starships,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    @Patrycja, I am happy of her sucess but honestly her album wasn’t great. I wish she would perfect rap, istead of making Pitbull rap/dance music..

    @Patrycja,

    I Knew she was gonna go to number regardless of her low sales.
    She picked a date where no one big was releasing an album. So its not shocking to see her go to number one, she really didnt have competition.
    253K though? Thats not a good sign. Could it be the Pop? Dunno??

    @JussSayin, Madonna released and album just a week before Nicki did….who was that “No one big” you were talking about?

    @Really…, Totally!! I mean she’s doing this all on her own! Nobody is trying to give her short cuts! She’s been doing this for years! She never gave up! And now she’s one of the biggest stars on this planet!!!

    camylover Reply:

    @Jussayin, 253,000 the first week are actually pretty good sales, especially for a female rapper, these days. Todays artists on average are not selling over 500,000 in their first week (Gaga was only able to sell a million because she charged $1 for it in its first couple days just to boost her opening sales numbers). Other than that her opening sales are pretty good and consistent with female pop acts in this day and age of the music industry. Also, why are people so focused on first week sales? They are not a true indicator of how an album will do in the long run. I’d rather my sales have a decent open, but a consistent and steady sales as the year goes on then for my album to debut with high numbers and disapear off the charts in a couple weeks.@JussSayin,

    @yoo, Uh- that’s actually the correct reason for the decline in sales. Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the entire year. You would be an idiot if you said anything otherwise. I work in a music store, and the best time to release and album is November to mid March because that’s when everyone is Christmas shopping or getting their tax returns. Any business will tell you that.

    @YMCMB, First off nicki second cd has offically flopped. Kim has 4 platinum plus cds and several platinum singles. Nickis 2nd cd wont sell glass its stalled and falling off charts while kim is out building her buzz for the new cd on a succuessful tour she is doi g accross the country in her new multi million dollar tour bus. U fail to realize for female rap to have 4 huge cds like likm and a string of hits that were not sellout songs is why kim is Queen of rap and shes been doing this for 15 years at the top. Nicki will always be in kims shadow for her 3 minutes thats left of fame for her. Nicki is broke shes has not made no money like she has spent to keep her name out there . Kim is a Icon nicki is just a joke a artist that could not get past the sophmore jinx, kim is on her 5 th cd and it looks like Team Kim is winning as usual!! No bitch or dike can see kim!!!!!!!

    Honey bee Reply:

    @Truth, Hip Hop has changed SO MUCH !! If Kim came out the same year as Nicki Minaj I KNOW she wouldnt have sold as much to be honest!! This Generation of Hip Hop ain’t that interested in Female Emcees!! I mean look at how hard Kim tried making a solid comeback!! I’ve been waiting since 2008-2012 and still nothing -__- !! Nicki Minaj is the only Female doing “SOMETHING”!! Kim fans are gonna be salty because someone else is doing better than her!! I would be salty to if Nicki went Mia and tried coming back but flopped and watched some younger female doing better than her ;L

    @Honey bee, The reason why Kim is taking so long to release an album is because she didnt sell her soul to the devil. Nicki Minaj sold her soul for fame thats why shes releasing all this pop crap she COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. Kim hasnt sold out which means she has to fight and work that much harder to get her new album to come out. Dont you see the way the industry works?

  21. Truth

    Whats funny to me is that even though Pink Friday sold 375,000 in one week, Lil Kims debut sold way less and still went on to go 2x Platinum. Pink Friday isnt even Double Platinum yet. Its not about first week sales, its about how you finish. Roman Reloaded should have definately sold 400-500k though this album got heavy promo and her fan base has grown but she sells 130k less than Pink Friday?

    I’ve actually had a change of opinion on this album. I went out and bought it yesterday after taking the time to listen to the whole thing online. I see where Nicki is going with this album. I like it. It’s odd, bizarre and all over the place but she gives us pop, R&B, techno AND Hip Hop all of which I love. The fact that I found myself singing and dancing to some of her songs later in the day without realizing it proves her music on this album is catchy. It isn’t GREAT but good enough to rock out to, dance to or just be plain sexy to. There’s only a couple songs on there I’m not really feeling but the rest of the 22 track album makes up for it. Kudos Nicki and congrats. I’m still a fan. (She almost lost me for a minute lol)

  28. Prove Me Wrong

    Men Lie, Woman Lie, Numbers Dont. Nicki said this album would sell more than Pink Friday and it didnt. Nicki is all talk u cant take her seriously. Roman Reloaded sold 130k less than PF. Even Drake sold way more on his Second album than his Debut but Nicki couldnt do it. Fail. I dont want to hear about Kim stans are mad. About what??? That your fav couldnt surpass her Debut? lmaoo yall are so sorry.

    Why is everyone saying 200,000is small amount, how much do you expect a million have you seen an the music industry. Also Lil Kims album got half a star in a review so no comparisons PLEASE. AND the album is No.1 UK CANADA JAPAN AND US so please Haters shut up.

    @My Name U Dont need 2 kno dat, Half a star? Are u on drugs all kims albums have gotten a B+ rating or more. Kims debut got almost a perfect score by every magazine including Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone. An “A” rating is no half star stfu. Nicki aint seeing those scores in this lifetime.

    @My Name U Dont need 2 kno dat, The reviews for Roman Reloaded are only favorable. That ish got 1-3 Stars by almost every magazine.

She literally has the #1 album on bothe hemispheres of the planet. Lil Kim has never even had a #1 album in her entire career. Check the records I’m not making up shit.

Majority of artist coming out don’t pull those numbers, nicki is in the minority of artist that pull decent numbers like that. If kim or any other femaler rapper were to debut anytime soon there numbers are most likely going to be lower than first week sales from their previous releases.

    this album was more experimental then pink friday and it wasn’t put out in a shopping season so of course the numbers will be lower
    FYI she didn’t do nearly as much promo for this than pink friday…at the same time when this goes double platinum or more over time what yall gonna have to say then??
    if she flopped so did just about every hit pop star today

    Reasons why the album sales are “low” compared to pinkfriday(keep in mind the sales are pretty good and the album has longevity to gain another platinum plaque”

    1. PinkFriday had more Promo than Roman Reloaded(Nicki was on everyone’s song in 2010 and was all over)
    2. PinkFriday was released during the week of black friday(thats the biggest day in revenue for EVERY company some need that black friday sale to make it through)
    3.PinkFriday had an 1.99 amazon deal the same Thursday(again black friday)
    4.She had hard hitting features.

    Now with that said, Roman Reloaded did very well opening week(But its about how it will do in the next few weeks) and it seems to be on the track of being a platinum album in about…1 month.

    @kurtis_shane, I kind of agree but this is my reasoning

    Poor single choices and No videos hurt this CD’s first week sells.

    Stupid Hoe was a waste of time. It was a stupid song period and Nicki put a video out for it. WHY? But no video for starships.

    She had no urban single at all on the charts on the radio. All except for Drake and Rick ross single. She shouldve thrown on right by my side first since the urban songs are a slow burn up the charts. Then Starships and videos for these two singles shouldv’e been dropped two months before teh album dropped. Then she shouldv’e put out Beez in the trap and get ready for the next pop single after starships started falling.

    last year she had your love, right thru me, Moment for life, and a buzz single romans revenge with no video all out before the album dropped. Then did it on em and superbass came put to help push the album sales and she went over both kanyes and drakes album sales. Pop singles last longer than urban ones.

    Also the promo tours she did for pink friday were a hit. That wouldve gotten her a over 500K first week. Colleges, small clubs and venues.

    I feel all the first week promo was wasted. She better hope she can sustain these sales because it’s not a flop now but it could be in the end.

    One plus was her international sales. They were better this time.
