‘Roman Reloaded’: Nicki Minaj To Score UK #1

Published: Tuesday 3rd Apr 2012 by David

Despite being welcomed by so so reviews, Nicki Minaj‘s latest LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘ is well on its way to becoming the LP of the year.

Indeed, despite being released in the country yesterday, it has sold enough copies to secure it a #1 spot on this week’s UK Album Chart.

Details below…

With 20,000 units sold thus far, the album is perched at #1, set to remain there by the time the final sales roll in this Sunday.

One spot below her is Labrinth‘s ‘Electronic Earth‘ which sits three spots above Madonna‘s ‘MDNA’ which dropped four places to #5, after spending last week at #1.

    @delroy

    the reason the sales are s*** in the UK is because america’s population is 5x bigger.

    She’s selling less 1st week sales in the UK than Bionic but everyone went hard on Xtina with everyone & the media before binice was even released.

    Sam you sayimg its doing well by judging this 1st week sales but made fun of Bionic’s 1st week sales in the UK 2010.

    bye!

    the album is H.A.R.D. , but not to the point it is the “LP OF THE YEAR”.
    Quit it with that BS already.
    i’m satisfied though. the pop songs are GREAT. i will make sure my fav night club will play tracks like “whip it” and ” I’m you leader” cuz i LOVE them.

    good Job nicki and i like RR.

    Well If This Gimmick Can Use Her Hype To Sell More Than The Predecessor’s STALEMATE Gold Status In The U.K. , Australia And Platinum In The U.S. Then She Will Be Leaving Her LOCAL Status ! At Lease Platinum In U.K, Australia, Multiplatinum In The U.S And Gain Certifications In Other Countries Until Then She Will Be Labeled Local And A Flop If It Only Sells 2 Million WW Again ! 😉

    @Kat Deluna Fan
    Pink Friday sold less than 500k outside of the U.S. that is local

    @LTM i agree pink friday was local in the US. it was her debut and urban music flops here in the UK. PF only peaked at #16. whereas this is proof she isnt local anymore, having a #1 album in the UK.

    I’m not a fan but glad for her cause they have been tearing her and this new CD down in the American press! I find the fickleness of the FAKE American media to be hilarious. This time last year she was the “Female Hip Hop God” now they wish she would drop off the face of the earth. That Grammy performance has these rapid dogs out for blood! Oh well….

    **I do love that cut with Chris Breezy though, real talk! 🙂

    How the hell is selling millions of copies WW a flop for anyone? The majority of acts don’t put up number like that period. Again, I’m not a big fan but come on ppl. “She’s only a local act”? Some of you say that a lot yet folks are moving product WW!…SMDH & laughing 🙂

    LOL NICKI WAS LOCAL BECAUSE PINK FRIDAY WAS AN URBAN/ HIP HOP. RAP ALBUM. OF COURSE IT WILL ONLY APPEAL TO PEOPLE IN THE STATES. RAP MUSIC IS ONLY SUCCESSFUL IN AMERICA MAINLY!

    20,000 SALES AND ONLY ONE DAY AND IT IS GOING TO GO NUMBER ONE FOSHO!

    GO NICKI! DO YA THANG! HATERS ARE PRESSED AND FEELING THE BURN FROM NICKI’S SUCCESS HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA

    Where are the Kim stans saying Nicki’s album was gonna flop? Kim won’t even sell 20K in a week but Nicki did it in a day. Her first week sales will slay & snatch wigs. You can’t be local when your album is #1 in countries that would never give a female rapper the time of day. If Nicki wasn’t winning would you be this pressed?

    @LEGENDTINA THE GODDESS OF MUSIC

    can u READ?

    SMH tisk tisk tisk

    This is about SALES for The First day of PFRR release in the UK, not an entire week. I was not shocked to see a retarded ass comment like that from a FLOPTINA fan. Christina aguilera GODDESS OF MUSIC? HAAHAHA YOUR HILARIOUS B****! I can assure this album will SELL more copies and shift more units in its first week THAN THAT TRASH Bionic did up until now since its release !

    FOR YOUR INFORMATION:

    Bionic sold 24,000 copies in the UK in its first week and that is the lowest sales ever for a NUMBER ONE ALBUM IN UK HISTORY LMAOOOO #CRYIN

    CHRISTINA AGUILERA THE FAILURE OF MUSIC BAHAHAHA
