Nicki Minaj blames US stores for poor album sales

Nicki Minaj has blamed US stores Walmart and Target for the poor performance of her new album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up'.

The singer recently released a revamped package of her second album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' but it seems the record hasn't quite gone down a storm in the US charts.

Minaj told Power 105.1 that many US shoppers can't find the album because it isn't stocked in some of the country's most popular shops. She said:

"It's 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 [are] not selling the album. And Target is actually my biggest retailer. They've sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever; thank you Target, but I wish you could have sold this kind of sets you up to fail."

She added, however, that she is content just having the tunes out. Minaj said: "At the end of the day I'm happy that I was able to put the music out. The real reason for me to put out 'The Re-Up' is because I wanted to have a bridge between this time and the third album. I wanted people to have music that I really stand by."
