Nicki Minaj is having the best week ever! Her sophomore album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ has debuted #1 on the Billboard 200. The album, selling 253,000, may not have out sold her debut album, ‘Pink Friday’, which sold 375,000 in his first week, but the accomplishment is something to be commended. It is her second #1 debut on the charts. No female rapper before her has had two consecutive #1 albums on the chart. The album has also debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and the UK R&B Albums Chart and is the first album by female rap artist to chart at number one in the United Kingdom, with first week sales of 47,462 copies.
I wonder what the critics will have to say about this? Congrats Nicki.
