Nicki Minaj Readies International Campaign For Album #2

Published: Thursday 13th Oct 2011 by David

It has been eleven months since ‘Pink Friday‘ , the debut solo effort by Rapper Nicki Minaj, was made available for release in all major music markets.

Now, the song bird has revealed that she intends to turn her second album into what can only be described as a ‘global affair’.

More information below…

Speaking to members of the press at the 2011 American Music Awards press conference, she revealed:

There’s been so many countries that have been sending requests and I haven’t been able to go out there.

As soon as the new album comes out, we’ll be going back on the road- that’s why I’m excited about right now. I want to be done with recording process and go overseas.

Here’s to hoping these plans materialize in the way Minaj is hoping they will.

For though global sales of ‘Friday’ have now commendably surpassed the 2 million mark, there is no denying that the handling of the project overseas was lacklustre to say the least.

Her bid overseas  stretched only  to a week of promotion  in London and an even shorter stint in  the rest of Europe.

Now that she is a much bigger star  in the US than she was this time last year, let’s hope that her management and label have a realistic plan put in place to boost her celebrity  in the mainstream media of  all markets.

    She’s gonna Flop this next go round. She no longer has a new artist hype, and so many were disappointed with Pink Friday once they got it.

  2. Love on top October 13, 2011

    Did she even promote the album Worldwide? O_o The Us wasn’t even that great they rely to much on her Name! Over 2mil No bad for a Fem rapper

  3. Love on top October 13, 2011

    @truthTeller The only ppl that was “dissapointed” with the album was Kim stans so bye Her Barbz and Kenz aint going no where !

  4. Robbie October 13, 2011

    I really hope she comes to Europe >> Netherlands next year. I’ve been such a fan of her and wished she performed with Britney on the EU leg of the Femme Fatale Tour.

    Anyways, can’t wait for her next album, I’m sure it will be great, I’ve been playing Pink Friday on a daily base, love love love it!

  6. thetruth October 13, 2011

    Is this the damn Nicki Minaj fansite? How many times are y’all going to post about her within a 24 hour period?

  7. LOVE4BEY October 13, 2011

    kinda excited about this new album….but i want it to be more urban…*crosses fingers* but knowing Nicki its probably gonna be more pop again…*yawns*

  8. Nicki Minaj #2 Fan October 13, 2011

    Damn all those hit singles and features and Pink Friday only sold 2 Million Worldwide..Flop! Lil’Kim’s ‘Hardcore’ sold more in the states alone.

  9. Nicki Minaj #2 fan October 13, 2011

    Wow only 2x worldwide…after all those features, hit singles and promo..Lil’Kim’s First LP ‘Hardcore’ sold over 3x…and thats just in the states with 2 singles.

  10. lovely October 13, 2011

    How is her album going to be a global affair when Pink Friday is sitting at 1.5 million a flop to me considering how she was overhyped. An artist can only utter such nonsense if they are known for breaking records. These words should be coming from someone like Lauryn Hill not this gimmick.

  11. Erm October 13, 2011

    Erm, it has taken over ten years for any of Lil Kims albums to move over 2 million units so how can her fans can sit her and mock Nicki selling 2 million in less than one year is beyond me.

    Nicki is a Pop star.

    Lil Kim was a gangster rapper who achieved SOME notoriety in 2001, Nicki has already broken more ground in three years than Kim has in 15, so you Pay Pals will just have to deal.

  12. Erm October 13, 2011

    Hey Pay Pals, Nicki is the third highest selling female artist in the US to release album between the 2010/2011 period, third only to GaGa and Adele.

    You Kim fans have convinced yourselves that there has ever been a time that the wrinkly h** was a top seller, she has never seen first week sales higher than 200,000 units and has NEVER achieved a billboard #1.

    We ALL know that Mya, Aguilera and Pink were the reason behind Lady Marmalade’s sucess, Kim just tagged along for the ride.

    Was Kim influential? Yes. Did she have great lyrics? Of course. Did she achieve what Nicki is going to achieve. HELL NO.

  13. Army Of Queen A (Aaliyah) & Queen Bee (Lil Kim) October 13, 2011

    @Erm Excuse Me But Step Your Cookies up Cus Kim Has Had Sales Over 200k She Had 230k sales For Notorious K.I.M, & Aguilera Asked For Kim on Lady Marmalade & At The End Of The Day Nicki Is Never Going To Touch Lauryn Hill

  14. Erm October 13, 2011

    A Lil Kim fan use Nicki terminology to diss a Nicki fan?
    And people say Minaj isn’t influential.

    Kim was washed up A LONG TIME before Nicki came on the scene.

  15. shadentea October 13, 2011

    @thetruth you mad that Nicki slayed Kim the Asian dragon when she was underground . Well if that plastic melting pot you stan for would have stayed out of jails and surgery maybe she could have used that time to be in the studio , giving BJ’S for beats

  16. beyoncititus October 13, 2011

    Get Roman back and kill these b******

  17. Nicki STAN October 13, 2011

    What I don’t understand is WHY everyone who was saying she’s gonna flop with Pink Friday is saying she’s gonna flop with this 2nd album ? If she hasn’t proven herself to any of the doubters now then they’ll never realize she’s the S***. I am a Nicki stan but I also enjoy Lil Kim’s early work. Nobody can deny she originated it, but to be bitter at someone being inspired you is nothing short of unflattering. Oh, and I’m from South Jamaica Queens like Nicki 😉

  18. Nicki STAN October 13, 2011

    & if nobody enjoys the constant Nicki post, there’s always an address bar for other sites. Hang it up, FLATSCREEN !

  19. jaytuenchi October 13, 2011

    @Armyofqueen but who is talking about Lauryn? You cant compare Nicki success to Kims so you drag Lauryn into the mix? Chile sit. Nicki is slaying Kims career. Daytime tvs shows like Ellen, a movie role voice over, MAC Pink Friday lip gloss, several awards and nominations, i mean her list just goes on and on like Rihanna this Nicki Minaj reign just wont let up.

  20. jaytuenchi October 13, 2011

    And for those complaining about how many Nicki post are on TGJ why keep clicking on them reading then commenting on each and every one of them i mean i dont get it …pressed clearly

  21. Those That Cannot Do, Stan October 13, 2011

    Like I said, chick is business smart, she’s gonna be killing them in 2012.

  22. jaytuenchi October 13, 2011

    Nicki eating these rap b****** do any Kim stans got a dinner mint?

  23. DaHotNig October 13, 2011

    Is lil kim still alive? That botched face b**** and her botched face fans are so BITTER! Like Nicki said, is it my fault that all of you b****** GONE?? It’s not Queen Nicki’s fault but these rap b****** pigeon holed themselves and their careers and are now suffering for it.

    Nicki just shot 4 videos for those features released last week and kim is struggling to find ONE hot song. Nicki is obvioiusly winning and you kim fans know that kim tried to go pop quite a few times but it didn’t work. I will henceforth refer to kim and her fans as “The Botchy Bunch”.

  24. jaytuenchi October 13, 2011

    And that single snippet sounds so dated what look like money chile who works with rockwilder anymore lmao Kim somewhere in bed with the heat on high under a heated blanket smelling like Bengay cause that arthritis is killing her

  25. fake October 13, 2011

    U nelly queens no nothing about a real female mc..all y’all care about is “commercial” sucess ie selling out..I give ikki props for “selling-out” so well but she’s a fraud..fake..non m-f factor when it comes to real female mc’s..mia x would tear her lylte..Nikki D..selling out to whitey dosent mean ur the means that u have no morals or dignity..yeah that discribes ms pink chicken wing to a tea!

  26. jaytuenchi October 13, 2011

    @Fake so did Lil Kim sell out when she did There She Goes or PCD reality show? Or when she did a song with Christina? H** sit down your pressed and bothered and im a Mia X fan but chile i have not heard her name in like 13 years i bet you over there with Moesha braids and doorknockers

  27. Auntie Jackie October 13, 2011

    Nicki is trying to become a global pop star that raps—rapping is what made her different. She used a lot of Kim’s steeze, missy’s crazyiness, gaga’s outrageousness and her OWN cartoon-ish expressions (not to mention being brought out by Wayne who is now HIMSELF a pop star). She’s a big combination of everything that’s hot right now, and was hot in that past.

    I don’t think she’s going to have a long career, but I’m not hoping she flops out of existence. I’ve always had mixed feelings, especially since she’s clearly sold a lot her soul.

  28. WTF October 13, 2011

    Cut it out. SHE IS THE B**** YOU LOVE TO HATE

  29. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE IS A STAR-RA. October 13, 2011

    S***** Friday was a flop flop flop

    The H** has only sold 1.5 million ww

    this h** is a GIMMICK

    Anywho, Ri’s album is gonna SLAY Your flop faves 😉

  30. QueenSize October 13, 2011

    Currently Nicki is not on tour. Is there a reason why she wasn’t at the BET Hip Hop Awards. All that success she has achieved for “female rappers” and she’s a no show? She showed up for Ellen. Wassup with that?

  31. jaytuenchi October 13, 2011

    @greatlacefront LMAO but yet the single your fav jumps on does what sit your corroded bodied ass down and @auntjackie you would be a kim fan save all that trying to plead your case for a job interview

  32. RDK October 13, 2011

    Army Of Queen A (Aaliyah) & Queen Bee (Lil Kim) omy you people really is running out of thing,s to use to try and tear down nicki,you really using that old a-ss angle that nicki will never be Luren hill,come on now no one will ever be lauren hills…the world knows that,and nicki never said she wanted to be luren hills,she only stated she would like to be on a level as her….and who would want to be something even clost to the best that is luren hills….so stop with you hating sh-it and fall back nicki is doing her thing…so live with it.

  33. >U Mad. October 13, 2011

    yes nicki people over seas bin rooting for you for sometimes now,do that go over seas asap,can’t wait for that new single off the new album….keep doing your thing Roman is out of boarding school now,ready to cost more chaos on the game.

  34. >U Mad. October 13, 2011

    QueenSize what are you trying to do make something out of nothing,Nicki always bin at the B.E.T. awards and the one time she is a no show you making a big thing out of it….as the saying go,s you please people 100% of the time and the one time you do 99% they Amplify the 1% to start sh-it…she had things to do…on another note my be she just straight up didn’t feel like going to the B.E.T. awards this year,whats wrong with that she have a free will like everyone else,anyways i am waiting on that sean,ross and will collab videos.

  35. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) October 13, 2011

    We will see her worldwide sales after all that ….

  36. Angie October 13, 2011

    I like Nicki, but I’m not sure I’m really checking for her this time around. I’m a bit disappointed in her gimmicks. First she’s bisexual, then she’s not. Next, she’s talking about how she wanted to kill herself outta nowhere. Her music is seriously gonna have to be on point to interest me. She’s falling off.

  37. RDK October 13, 2011

    Angie not because she seems like she is falling to you don’t mean she is to everyone else,wt were have you bin under a rock what part of nicki is falling she is building her self up more and more everyday little by little.

  38. KIM FAN October 13, 2011

    First off, to discredit kim to build up nicki is bananas, nicki is doing it BIG no doubt, but just because she’s hot now DON’T THINK she will not be 1 album away from being JA RULED. say what u want but kim is BATTLE TESTED, when she came out she had brat, sNp, boss, QL, foxy, left eye, missy, eve, remy to compete with, who is nicki competition…. KREAYSHAWN?!. Hell, when nitty scott Twitter was blown away asking why she ain’t on, she will crush nicki. As 4 accomplishments, kim had endorsements with candies, MAC glam, royalty luxury watches, AOL, the superbowl intro, movies, tv shows (should I go on) & kim was a HARDCORE RAPPER. She shared the stage with Diana, patti, sung with cyndi. so before u barbz talk check your research… Lil kim is an ICON.

  39. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    Nicki the only female rapper doing big things so it makes sense the TGJ would promote her. She’s constantly in the news. TGJ reports the news, gossip, media, etc. Why would that person above ask such a dumb question of why nicki constantly on TGJ? Trust me, when kim’s new stuff comes out next year yall will be happy TGJ is promoting it on this site so if you don’t like nicki don’t come to her post.

    BTW, big ups Nicki! Teamminaj is proud of your success regardless of what haters think.

  40. KIM FAN October 13, 2011

    And another thing. Let’s not act like nicki is doing it that BIG!. QL has had 2 tv shows n an Oscar nom, Eve has a syndicated tv show. So lets stop acting like nicki is queen of all when female rappers exceeded yrs before nicki came out.

  41. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    I agree w/ erm. Let’s not forget ALL female rappers wanna gain popularity past the hood and they want their music to reach a wider audience so if nicki is now considered a popstar I have no problem with that. That means her music isn’t limited to one demographic. And I think any artist WHO IS like that is closeminded and selfish.

    @Kim fan take your bitter ass home. No one is talking about tv shows. This is MUSIC. And nicki has done it big in that area as far as we’re concerned.

  43. Malibu Barbie October 13, 2011

    @KIMFAN i agree with u , the nicki fans cant respond to the truth thats y they continue saying ” take ur mad ass home or why are u mad ”
    Lil’ Kim BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. and she was GANGSTA RAPPER. she wasnt even POP. she didnt even SELL OUT to get fame like nicki, Kim had to compete with 7 other high profile female rappers and she still slayed. who is nicki competing with NOBODY that is why shes getting all these awards cuz there is no1 else to give it to. real talk.
    when u pinpoint nicki as an artist shes GARBAGE. shes just an image. shes the barbie. shes the chick with the plastic ass who wears clownish outfits. not to mention she has to steal other people’s ideas and style just so she can excel

    Once Again B**** nicki Dont Own those Words & B****** been saying STEP YOUR COOKIES UP !!! Way Before Nicki So F*** You Mean O o ps ! Take A SEAT

    RDK & Y.U.MAD please STFY|U We All Know You H*** Are The same person That CANT TYPE FOR S*** !

  45. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    Lil Kim been there done that. And that’s why she isn’t important anymore. Now nicki is doing that and she is doing it better. The kim naysayers are obviously jealous and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that. Nicki not doing anything wrong. She is living her dreams. You stay mad at someone busting subliminal shots when they are just words and that’s why nicki keeps doing it cuz she know kim get mad over stupid s*** and that’s why she keep winning. Sticks and stones break your bones but if you getting sensitive over trivial disses that are like throwing pebbles then you are weak. HAHAHA.

    When kim’s albums sells over 300,000 copies first weeks AND is platinum number one on billboard then you can talk. Til then, your comments are marked as null and void.

  46. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    *kim’s album that comes out next year. Not albums.

  47. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    Actually @moron barbie, nicki won a underground hiphop award for best new artist in 2008 and she hadn’t branded the barbie image like that yet soooo…*POOF* be gone.

  48. Queen Kim “The Black Modanna” October 13, 2011

    @I’MA HAVE TO SEND HER TO HER MAKER When kim’s albums sells over 300,000 copies first weeks AND is platinum number one on billboard then you can talk?Bytch When Nicki sales over 12 million albums and a 5 mic album then you can talk.It doesn’t even matter what Nicki sold cause the reception was horrible even some of her loyal fan base say there never going to buy another one of her albums again.All I hear is how Nicki fans want the old Nicki back.Kim stays true to her fans.All her albums are classics and can still be played to this day.So holla at me when Nicki have at least one classic album under her belt that I can play 16 years from now.

  49. Deontay October 13, 2011

    If yall thought Pink Friday did good for a female artist, watch this album…&& of course kim fans,we wouldn’t forget about you and your master…you guys are sure 2 b targeted..i mean once Kim released black friday, didn’t yall see how wen nicki was asked what egos would b on this album,she instantly said ROMAN…(the evil,talk s***,hater slayer)LMFAO!!!so hopefully kim’s new album will be better than her last mixtape..but um back 2 topic,i see yall talkin bout people were disappointed wen pink friday was released,um NEGATIVE..i think you guys are refering to black friday,i know i know..the names sound alike(figures)…PF was higlhy anticipated & greatly appreciated…i mean she had to break records for female artist somehow!!! Lol!! You kim fans need to just sit on ya couch,eat ya crackers and cheese & keep prayin that kim get her cookies up!!
    “You win the battle but b**** i win the war;it’s time 4 roman 2 break ya of everything you live 4”

  50. Deontay October 13, 2011 the prblem is peopke are so one track minded when the speak about a female MC…Missy is nothing like kim,kim nothing like eve,eve nothing like diamond,diamond nothing like trina and trina nothing like nicki…imma say this a second time,EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS..things do change you did grow hair around ya s*** right!!!CHANGE!!!we did get our first black president right!!CHANGE!!!gas prices do happen to go from $2.49 to $3.10 right!!!!CHANGE!!!!miley cyrus did go from having the limo out front to movin her fuckkin hips like Yeah right!!!CHANGE!!!and nicki minaj is a female artist who uses facial expressions,different voice tones,different styles,and different ego to get her music across right!!!CHANGE!!!! like damn…every female rapper isn’t goin be walkin around like kim talkin bout(THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE,NOT A REAL SONG)”Yeah,i put this p**** on ya lips,now watch me back bend while i suck ya d***;yeah that make me a real b****,i never ease of ya hand when ya playin with my c***!!”LIKE WTF!!nobody cares about what some random n**** was doin with ya p****….so maybe some of us would rather perfer “if you see a itty bittty piggy in the market,give that b**** a quarter at the car tell her park it” or “and i’m startin to feel like a dungeon dragon..rah rah likka dungeon dragon” or evern” i aint talkin poultry when i say this chicken’s FRRRIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEDDDD!!!” people with sense open there ears to anything new….i wonder,have you listened to any female artist since kim been gone..cause what i’m gee\ttin from you is that she the only real artist???


    At least Nicki is more revelant than Kim !

  52. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    @Queen kim you missing the point. What nicki had done in 1 year is more significant than krimpanzee. Do u understand math? How can someone sell 12 million in 1-2 years? Only adele doin it cuz she white and female rap was already dead before nicki. So nicki doing a good job. And you do know that 12 million must be kim’s overall sales WW? STUPID.

  53. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 13, 2011

    @Deontay “You kim fans need to just sit on ya couch,eat ya crackers and cheese & keep prayin that kim get her cookies up!!”



  54. Queen Kim “The Black Modanna” October 13, 2011

    @I’MA HAVE TO SEND HER TO HER MAKER Nicki will be gone in 5 years.A lot of her fans were disappointed with Pink Friday.Her new album will sell less than her first one.People are already starting to get tired of her and her gimmicks.

  55. Katy+GaGa=Queens October 13, 2011

    Pink Fridays sales:
    1.2million in the U.S
    1.5million world wide
    This b**** is local
