It’s the number Pop culture has been waiting for.
Yes, the first week sales of Nicki Minaj‘s new LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ were published by Hits Daily Double.

Chart position: #1
Total US Sales: 251, 551
Let’s be honest, for an act of Nicki’s stature this isn’t a good look.
Almost 100,000 units less than ‘Pink Friday‘s first week figures, we doubt Nicki will be too pleased with this number- especially considering the mammoth campaign she launched in its aid.
However, with the clip for ‘Starships’ set for release in coming days, the LP may remain at #1 next week and will no doubt outsell ‘Friday’ in the grand scheme of things, helped by a plethora of smash hit singles and her upcoming world tour.
We should also note that ‘Friday’s debut number was partly down to its release date, launched in the heat of the ‘Black Friday‘ mass buying spree and further boosted by Christmas spending some weeks later.
As well as this, with the #1 spot in the UK, #5 spot in New Zealand and now the top spot in the US, Minaj can look forward to topping the United World Chart tally for the very first time this Thursday.
So, if you think about it, she’s doing much better holistically than this time than she did the last.
But what do you think?
