Nicki Minaj feels that her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up has not sold as well as expected because some US retailers have refused to put it on shelves.
The rapper told radio station Power 105.1:
''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 one ... it kind of sets you up to fail.''
Nicki went on to explain:
''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.''
With new music available on iTunes at the click of a button, does anybody even by CDs anymore?
