This past Black Friday, retail stores such as Walmart and Target were flooded with shoppers looking to find the best deals on major products. However, if you were searching for Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re UP" album, you may have been out of luck. Nicki has mentioned that major retailers like the aforementioned Walmart and Target won't be carrying her album, making it difficult for fans to cop her re-release and hindering her sales.
"It is hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn't want to take a chance. So, Target and Walmart is not selling the album. Target is actually my biggest retailer, they've always been my biggest retailer. They've sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever, so, thank you, Target. But I wish you could've sold this one."
There was a bit of a bright spot, however, as the Young Money artist mentioned that Best Buy would be carrying her new LP, even if it was in limited quantities.
"Best Buy only took limited because they're like 'Oh no, we want to play it safe,' so it's very difficult and it kind of sets you up to fail."
Nicki's "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up" album landed at select retailers on November 19th.
