As much as it pains me to acknowledge this, the truth must be brought into the light. Nicki Minaj‘s Roman Reloaded album is a huge fucking hit!
The talentless sack of silicone is on course to score her second consecutive No. 1 album in the US, with Roman Reloaded headed straight to the top with sales of around 200k-225k. The album’s also set to top the UK charts too, proving that Nicki’s got a considerable fanbase outside of the United States now.
On top of the album sales, “Starships” (otherwise known as the worst single of 2012) is a certified smash. It’s already Platinum in the States, has reached No. 2 in the UK and Australia, and the top 10 in France and other parts of Europe.
The success certainly won’t be lost on Nicki, who boasted earlier this week about how Roman Reloaded will surpass the sales of the two-million selling Pink Friday when questioned about the sophomore slump during an interview.
“Hell no! This album is gonna sell so much more than Pink Friday,” she said. “Ask me this question two years from today, Clue. With me, I’m never about first week and all that. I like to look at it for the long haul. I’ma travel, I’ma meet my beautiful babies, my Barbz everywhere, and this is my first time I’m gonna get to do a world tour, so the album is gonna do its thang.”
Well, at least she didn’t refer to herself in third person there, which is one thing Nicki loves to do. All the time. All the time.
What is the world coming to?
